  • A mostly superb cast, superior special effects, a sparkling musical score and a fantasy-filled plot . show more

  • The children's real world, or what passes for real in a fantasy, could hardly be more inviting, for reasons that are hardly mysterious: the strong performances, under Mark Waters's accomplished direction; the smart, bright language, much of it taken from the books; the stylish cinematography, by Caleb Deschanel. show more

  • The film underscores the power of reading, and applying what we read to problem-solving. The story suggests that we don't really see the natural world around us, and if we did our lives, like Jared's and his siblings', would be immeasurably richer. show more

    Little scary for young children. But a little young for adults. It really was not too bad not something I would buy.
