The Nutcracker and the Four Realms – Film #95

A cracker…or just nuts?


Let me start by saying I haven’t known much about the Nutcracker story before going into this film. I had heard the music and that was about it. The trailer made it look fantastical and engaging.

Oh if only it was.

This was pure Disney churn-fest…churning out another half-assed film which just misses the mark so much. Earlier this year they seemed to do the same with A Wrinkle in Time…but they’ll have a huge hit somewhere and all the fodder will be forgotten about.

And thats the main problem…this is very forgettable. It’s just not that great. It’s literally like someone watched the Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe and thought “Oh I’ll recreate that but make it a little darker”.

Its not great, and its not very engaging.

In fact if you ever say that Kiera Knightley is the one good thing about a film, you can only imagine how the rest will be.

Bit pointless, but not overly terrible
