Action/Adventure, Drama, SciFi/Fantasy
Even if you’re suffering from fantasy fatigue by now, considering the recent onslaught of movies trying to mimic the successes of the Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings series , The Spiderwick Chronicles could be just the movie to make you love the cinematic side of the genre again. There is a genuine sense here of discovering the unknown, of finding that world hidden just behind the veil of reality we’ve been taught never to peak behind. Actor Freddie Highmore’s young hero could be any of us, and that’s exactly the kind of protagonist you want ushering in a fantastic new world filled with fairies, brownies, goblins, and shape-shifting villains (97 min.).
