The IndieWire writer calls “Pinocchio” the best combination of del Toro’s more classic work with newer ones, and also highly praises the visual design of the animated strip. Other journalists note how skillfully del Toro shows all the futility and grief from the war, but at the same time gives the viewer “sparks of hope, laughter and humanity.”
