  1. 4 stars…but reading your review kinda makes raised my brow. You point out so many silly things in the movie, like the father and the three fairies. When I began reading your review, i thought maybe something interesting is in here…but your review only confirms me not to watch it (despite your 4 stars 😉 )

    • It has it’s problems, story-wise, but I’m thinking much of that springs from the desire to include ideas and elements from the older version, some of which were definitely an uncomfortable fit with the story’s focus so shifted. Add in all the more modern stuff and it ends up being a sort of hybrid at best with many of the problems that cropped up for me in “Jack The Giant Killer”.

      Still… Angelina Joli is just amazing in this and her performance lifted it well above what the film gave us without her. 😉
