- Actors I really like (Jack Black, Cate Blanchett) (+1/2)
- Kid actor is NOT annoying (+1/2)
- Fell asleep (plot a little long, dull) (-1/2)
- Visuals are nice and imaginative, but ultimately just flashy (-1/2)
- Met (but not exceeded) low expectations (+0)
I had no great expectations this was going to be a great movie, and it delivered no more, no less than promised. The plot won’t surprise you, and while some dialogues are interesting (between Jack Black and Cate Blanchett), it doesn’t get… well, magical.
