ReelViews for movies starring 'Richard E. Grant'
McCarthy plays it straight, allowing her talent as an actress – often hidden under the dreck for which she draws big paychecks – to shine through.
This is like no superhero movie we have ever before seen. Nor is there likely to be another one of this sort anytime soon.
Targeted at prepubescent girls, the holiday-themed fantasy adventure drowns in CGI, underdeveloped characters, and a plot utterly devoid of energy and excitement.
A stirring drama that incorporates lighter moments with scenes of deeply felt tragedy.
