Functions as a time machine to take the viewer back to the days of “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” while re-introducing the man who functioned as a friend/mentor/father-figure.
Starts strongly but the qualities that make the first 20 minutes harrowing drain away and the movie morphs into an unsatisfying excursion into fantasy-tinged horror.
Saddled with an unevenly paced screenplay and overly reliant on generic CGI, "A Wrinkle in Time" fails to convey the magic of the book.
Perhaps the “Wonder” in "Wonder Wheel" is that anyone agreed to produce something so tired, joyless, and uninspired.
From its imagination-tinged opening to its Kumbaya ending, "Wonder" never forgets that its mission is to provide a non-threatening, warm-and-fuzzy experience.
An evocative movie with a vaguely disappointing narrative that doesn’t justify the patience viewers must exhibit.
There’s always a place for good acting, clever dialogue, and a sense of humor, even if the narrative teeters between incidental and irrelevant.
The disappointment of what this movie could have been dogs it as it navigates safe, predictable roads to a preordained conclusion.
The narrative effectively marries the character based-aspects with the mystery-thriller ones.
This is a vital, original, and emotionally potent chapter to one of the longest-running movie series out there.
