Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children Reviews
Unlike other films of a similar nature, of kids with unnatural or supernatural powers, here the children, very young to almost adult, never look like they can make their way out alive.
Essentially, this is everything – absolutely typical and more – that you’d expect from a Tim Burton-helmed film.
But the one reason Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children works wonders is Tim Burton's direction and some well crafted CGI. The monsters in this movie look scary and yet they offer a light-hearted brand of entertainment and comedy. The climax scene where skeletons and monsters battle it out at an amusement park is downright hilarious. This movie and its perfect balance of mystery, gloom and innocence will charm you and leave you with a veritable sense of wonder. This is masterclass filmmaking at its best. Child or adult, this 3D fantasy adventure is a must watch.
The tempo is little more than snail's pace and the visual enticement doesn't quite lend it's wings to a narrative that wallows in a marginal fantasia that's impressive but not quite enticing!
Overall, the film leaves you with a mixed feeling of wanting to like the film and its characters, but yet there is something that holds you back from accepting them wholeheartedly.
