Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Adventure Fantasy - This is an effects-heavy fantasy film based on the holiday-themed story and ballet. There are a couple of brief dance sequences, but overall the focus is on adventure. The known veteran stars in the film, from Keira Knightley and Helen Mirren to Morgan Freeman and Eugenio Derbez, only have smaller supporting roles. There are some scary moments and images that may be intense for very young children, but on the whole most parents will find this safe viewing for their kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Designed for and targeted at prepubescent girls, the holiday-themed fantasy adventure drowns in CGI, underdeveloped characters, and a plot utterly devoid of energy and excitement. ...visually titillated but otherwise unimpressed with this latest fairy tale interpretation.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average ... a weirdly hideous hodgepodge of images and ideas, as convoluted as its confusing title would suggest. It's at once familiar and bizarre, overstuffed yet half-baked. And while it boasts impressive individual elements, the overall result remains far from the magic it seeks.

NY Post Full Review
Poor ...a dark political allegory — exactly what audiences are craving! — filled with propaganda and smear campaigns. Some of the powerful characters you thought were good are evil and vice versa. It's like "Wicked,” but wretched.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average Visually, the film compensates for the two-dimensionality of its writing and acting. There are also impressive set pieces... Unfortunately, the film succumbs to the predictability of Disney relying on war as a means of providing an ostensibly exciting narrative backbone to its contemporary fantasies...
