ReelViews for 'Fantasy/Adventure' movies
This fantasy-adventure inspired by Arthurian legends, although entertaining for children in the age 8-12 bracket, may be a bore and a chore for adults.
As the credits roll with most of the major plot threads unresolved, the frustration is palpable when one recognizes that there will be no second installment.
Saddled with an unevenly paced screenplay and overly reliant on generic CGI, "A Wrinkle in Time" fails to convey the magic of the book.
Works as a fantasy, an adventure, a dark comedy, a story of love between a girl and her pet, and a vicious satire.
This is the Origin of King Arthur According to Guy Ritchie and, if nothing else, it’s kinetic and attention-grabbing.
"Fantastic Beasts" is an enjoyable stand-alone but its position as the progenitor of a new franchise remains unclear.
A fresh and engaging storybook adventure that should appeal to viewers both inside and out of the core demographic.
