I truly wasn’t expecting much from this movie goon in but it was the only family movie available to watch with my 5 and 3 year old. I figured that because it wasn’t a cartoon I’d have to deal with squirming bottoms and talking. But to my amazement the movie was not only entertaining to both of my boys (NO SQUIRMING!!!) both my husband and I loved it. My husband wouldn’t even get a refill on the popcorn—-and believe me that doesn’t happen often!!!! I have nothing negative to say about the film. Some might think it’s a little too scarry for younger kids but neither one of mine were scarred. A couple of times I had to explain some things to my 5 year old. The head goblin is kind of scarry looking; but not too bad.
Be warned, this movie is scary!
First, the good parts. Amazing special effects, of course. They double cast Freddie Highmore flawlessly, so much that people who didn’t know it were shocked. Additionally, my kids read the books and said it was an impressive adaptation of all five (!) of the books. Having not read them myself, the movie still felt coherent without missing any parts.
I can’t recommend it highly, on the basis of its being far too violent, and sometimes downright gory. Now, I’m not a puritan; I like horror movies and my family likes action movies. But the violence was a little too close-up and the monsters too real for a movie described as a family film. We saw close-ups of cut-open eyes and exploded heads. My ten year old walked away disturbed and my three year old (I thought it would be okay by the trailers) spent most of the time with his head underneath my coat. This movie should have been PG-13.
Action can be good, even thrilling. Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Narnia all had great family friendly action scenes. The difference, I realized after thinking about it, is that all of the action in this movie was desperate. Not thrilling, just outnumbered, and kind of awful. When the good guys do win, it’s sudden and almost random, so you feel less like cheering and more like just unclenching your teeth, glad that it’s over.
In addition, the non-action scenes weren’t fun either. The dialogue outside the action scenes was almost entirely the family being angry at each other. There may be two laughs in the whole movie. Even the “good” magical creatures had a kind of sinister look to them. There wasn’t a lot to *enjoy* here. You may walk out of the theater saying the movie was “amazing” or “exciting,” but you won’t be able to say that it was “fun.”
