Washington Post
The battles are boring and the jokes as flat as old 7-Up, but the film's color palette and creatures -- from teeny buzzing critters to a monster that looks like a giant dust mite -- offer a lot to see. It's just not enough to save the convoluted story.

Boston Globe
Delgo demonstrates how hard it is to create a memorable, credible-looking piece of animated entertainment.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Delgo is blocky and hastily coloured in. Characters are stiff; there is little variety in movement. It's a cheapo product ideally suited for a Saturday-morning pyjama vigil in front of a small screen. And the film suffers from a poverty of imagination to boot.
40
Too leaden for adults and too baffling for kids.
38
The story is tedious, noisy and banal. It is also rather dark and convoluted for children, though it does have the familiar bombast of a video game.
30
Delgo is a dud.
25
A few magic rocks and tepid battle scenes do little to inspire interest in the goings-on as Malcolm McDowell and Eric Idle spout villainy and punch lines, respectively.
20
Village Voice
You'll just wonder why this isn't a video game you can actually play.
20
It says plenty about how torpid the storytelling in Delgo is that the end credits are probably the best thing in the film.
16
Entertainment Weekly
Too grim for kids and too dumb for grown-ups.
