ReelViews for movies starring 'Chiwetel Ejiofor'
There are times when the visuals are dazzling and dizzying but there’s also a sense that we’re watching something created on a computer as opposed to a genuine bending of reality.
Although it qualifies as solid entertainment for a 2019 family with its technically superior look, the film struggles mightily to find the magic that came so easily to its predecessor.
Makes a conscious decision to address a subject that not many family films would touch with a ten-foot pole…then bungles the implications and the message.
This is science fiction for sophisticated audiences and, as such, a fulfilling and satisfying experience.
