Very good never read the book but the movie was very very good
Good God what a disaster.
Loved the book. went to go see it, and wondered if it was even the same book. How can you take the central them out of a movie and still deliver the story? It's like Harry Potter without magic, or Lord of the Rings without the Rings. Stupidly told story that makes no sense whatsoever.
Thought it was a great movie for kids yo imagine beyond what they think is possible.
"I cant stand Oprah... Clearly the movie failed because of her bad, pathetic acting." If you don't like her why you went to see this movie?
Who are the 6 % who liked this thing?
I loved when Meg saved Charles and her dad. I especially loved the book. When this movie came out, I wanted to watch it sooo bad. When the trailer came on the TV I got overly excited. I love this movie!??
A complete fail at trying to make an inspirational movie. Horrible Acting, even worse story line.
I cant stand Oprah... Clearly the movie failed because of her bad, pathetic acting.
love the hopeful vibe and the sense of what is wondrous and loving being able to defeat evil; stunning visuals, too... however, there's less emphasis on some of my favorite parts, such as Meg's struggle to see her own capabilities, or the numbing, oppressive regime on Camazotz. Not meant to be exactly like the book, which was probably wise, and there probably wasn't time for Aunt Beast, but I would have liked to keep the feeling that victory is not assured - we still have to fight the battle, even if we think we are weak or unworthy.
Liked how it showed love conquers all. How Jesus sacrifice everything for us and we have to do the same. I would use it as a teaching tool.
The book was average but thought the movie might be okay for the kids, but they didn't enjoy it.
I'm in the movie
It's a great adaptation of a classic novel! Loved it!
This is an amazing novel and had all the potential to become an amazing film; very disappointing.
I Enjoyed this movie and Thought it was Good and thought the Effects were very well done. the Acting wasn't that bad. After seeing some Reviews on this I was a little Worried about this Disney Movie but I found it Quit good and liked Oprah in it.
Great special effects but movie lost its momentum as it progressed. Unfortunately the best parts are shown in the trailer. You come out at the end feeling something is missing.
Just a really excellent adaptation from the book.
great movie it was kinda sad but it was a movie go check it out
It was a beautiful interpretation of the book, an updated version. Inspiring movie about encouraging young people (young girls) to love yourself and respect your mind. Encouraging girls to be the hero’s of their own story. Encouraging girls to go into science and math and makin it cool. Loved it!
BADDDDD Movie, besides the trailer which always shows the best parts if any, go online to check it out
This movie inspired me & was very relevant to life. It encouraged sacrificial love that is brave & heroic, as well as forgiveness in a creative colorful way.
This was the worst movie I have ever seen. Several times, I bust out laughing out loud because I expected the cameras to come out and announce that the whole thing was a joke. The dialogue was terrible and the actors delivered the lame lines with the passion of fourth graders in a school play. Oprah Winfrey was bizarre and Reese Witherspoon should never be taken seriously as an actress again. I was so excited to see it because I loved the book ~ but I almost feel that there should be a class action lawsuit to require a refund to everyone who went to see this bilge.
Awful, just awful. Bad acting (girl), incoherent storyline, a soundtrack that constantly tells you what emotion your should be feeling (the usual for Disney). Don't waste your time and money.
This movie was a true waste of my money and my time. Boring and whack as crap.
A good film version of one of my favorite books from childhood. Not unexpectedly, some of the characters did not match my mental pictures of them, but I got over the incongruity.
After the initial dazzling special effects the movie breaks down into one long empty platitude.
Finally a good movie with good morals. Very rare to find this these days.
Relax, people. Enter into the spirit of this movie. Enjoy! Don't grow up!!
Fatally flawed from beginning to end.
My favorite book in middle school. I’m so happy this film was made!
The movie lacked direction which made it difficult for the younger people to follow.
For those that managed to stay awake, yawning was unavoidable.
MY kids really enjoyed the movie and that's all that matters!
An inadequate attempt to do the book justice.
I love this movie. Show you the real brain wash of the society.
I would give it a -5 if I could, who ever told Oprah she could act...5 minutes on line was all I could handle...8>)
The strongest point of this movie is the costume design which indicates how dismal it is, though it beats Black Panther which may take the award in this category anyways due to affirmative action.
I had low expectations after reading the reviews, but I genuinely really loved this film. Perhaps I am biased because it was one of my very favorite books as a child, but I feel it is a timely, accessible message (acknowledgeing our faults and still being deserving of love) for adults and children alike, and that the message was well portrayed. There were some elements of the book lacking, but that's to be expected because it's a different media. I felt it was visually stunning, and I love how sincere and intimate the relationships were on screen. It was also very thought-provoking and prompted good conversation after the movie. I don't understand why the reviews are consistently low unless it's because noone likes a film written by, directed by, and with almost all of the main characters women and girls. Oh...maybe that's the problem. So, if that fact doesn't faze you, I highly recommend this film.
