The Spiderwick Chronicles (Special Edition) back to product details

A Good Kid's Flick That'll Hold Adults' Attention

Surprisingly fun and exciting, THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES is so much better than expected (and for my money better than the overproduced & overblown Harry Potter schlock) that you may forget at times that this is a children's movie. That's where the problem comes in: It's not quite up to snuff as a film for adults. But there's enough here to make the time pass fast, including good performances and simply fabulous special effects, some of these as good as I have seen (at last: monsters that look both imaginative and scary and who move in a very real manner). Overall, there's no reason not to give the film a try--unless you loathe fantasy. Oh, and you get Joan Plowright, David Strathairn and Mary-Louise Parker, too!
