The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Movie Review
Written by: Ashton Jenks
This long anticipated movie has been previewing in theatres for over a year and it’s finally come out. Staring is the actress Mackenzie Foy. The film is based off of the famous ballet, but with a twist! Unfortunately, the movie was a bit uninspired. One of it’s strong suits was its graceful cinematography. The wardrobe chosen for the characters was exquisite, and was a true tribute to costume design. The sets were straight from Narnia and inspired a Christmas feeling! The dancers featured reminded everyone of the true spirit of the film. However…the plot of the story was not as clever as fans had hoped. The villain of the movie was a common archetype in film of the past ten years and viewers felt zero emotional connection to the characters. Overall, the movie was a feat of cinematography, but it lacked an in-depth plot. It’s a fantastic movie to get you into the holiday spirit and a good movie for children.
