After viewing ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’, the only two reasons I can think to recommend it are Eva Green and some lovely visuals.
It becomes apparent that early on all of the kids in the film are one- dimensional, they have nothing interesting about them apart from their ‘peculiarity’ (mouth at the back of their head, invisibility, etc), Tim Burton and Jane Goldman don’t humanise them, they’re just defined by something superficial.
There is no emotional climax, as the story is so muddled and full of expository dialogue. They explain at length about all these different time loops that they must visit at certain points, and how they can revisit certain points, see certain characters again, but not see others, blah, blah, blah, it’s just baffling. I was a big fan of Donnie Darko, so it’s not like I’m not versed in complicated time-travel movies.
Some of ‘Miss Peregrine’s…’ faults could be overlooked if we cared about the lead character, but Asa Butterfield’s acting is so wooden, I just didn’t buy his performance for a minute. Why bother with a phoney American accent? Have him be English, or just get an American actor to play the part. His love interest, played by Ella Purnell, is much more charming, but like the others, her character doesn’t feel fully realised.
Unfortunately, this is just another 2016 major disappointment.
This Movie is a fantastical piece of art and a classic Tim Burton movie comparing to Batman, Beetle juice and The Nightmare before Christmas, yet is not a film for the faint heart as it is a very dark film, Samuel L. Jackson’s acting makes the film scary and even more dark- the acting all round is excellent with Asa Butterfield making another show stopping performance and the wonderful Chris O’Dowd’s acting which shocked me as surprisingly fantastic- a very strange thing for a comedy writer. The peculiars are fascinating and very scary, the twins and the scariest for you do not know their powers until the very end of the film. The relationship between Asa Butterfield’s character and the girl that is thinner than air is very strong and is a key part of the movie, and works very well. The movie is one of my favorites in a year full of good movies and is certainly the most enjoyable I have seen this year, it is worth going to your local cinema to see this film. Tim Burton once again excels in movie making.
I found the film to be watchable and enjoyable. But it has missed a fair amount of detail from the books, I thought the scenes were a bit plain especially in parts with the battle of good versus evil.
Character development was good but I think you need to get the mix of actors just right, I think casting could have done a better job. Chris O’Dowd, Judi Dench & Terence Stamp’s characters seemed a little out of place. Also I like Samuel L. Jackson just not sure if he was the right fit either.
I do hope this film doesn’t follow in suite with ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’. If they tackle a second film with Miss Perigrine, and include more attention to detail and make it more spectacular then they can make this film feel more… well more. But it’s need to have an improved successor.
Eva Green and the actors who play the peculiar children are the shining lights throughout this film.
Do not let this review put you off, it is an easy film to watch and it’s quite marvelous in parts, Tim Burton stamped, you should enjoy it, but it may leave you feeling a lost. I can’t seem to decide if Mr Burton has done too little or too much.
