The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018) 🌟🌟
Now, I’ve seen The Nutcracker ballet and it’s brilliant. It’s gets you into the festive season and the excitement builds for Christmas 🎄. The movie however, does not do the same 😠.
Being that this is #disney and the movie boasts a stellar cast, I would have expected lots of magic, excitement 🎉 and it would bring about that good festive vibe, to start off the Christmas period. All of this was nowhere to be seen 👀. The movie was dull 😒 and lacked the magic you see and feel when you watch the ballet.
The sets is great, the filming is great and the costumes are great but, what isn’t great is the dialogue 👎🏻and the lack of connection between characters. Mackenzie Foy plays the main character Clara; whilst her performance isn’t bad, it does feels like she is almost trying too hard. Jayden Fowara-Knight is just awful as Phillip who plays The Nutcracker 😐 and please do not get me started on that squeaky voice of Keira Knightly!🙉
I would recommend sticking to watching the ballet production. If you do decide to watch this movie, please do not let it ruin the magic of ballet and more importantly, do not let it ruin the magic of Christmas🎄☃️.
2 out of 5 stars. Remember, it’s my opinion!
