Movie Reviews

Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Lisa Schwarzbaum Terry Gilliam-ish territory here, spiked with imagery from Holocaust nightmares and drug trips. Attention, university film clubs: Here's your cult-ready midnight-movie programming.
Boxoffice Magazine - 6/10 by Pam Grady To call this so-called family film dreadful is an understatement. Jaw-droppingly awful on almost every level, this is a movie to avoid.
Movieline - 5/10 by Michelle Orange Somewhere in there is a little blonde girl and her dreamy princeling, but damned if I could see them through the dreck.
USA Today - 4/10 by Claudia Puig Who had the lamebrained idea for a post-apocalyptic 3-D Nutcracker that is lacking any trace of ballet?
Variety - 4/10 by John Anderson The familiarity of the music may actually be a disadvantage; the ear wants the melodies to conform to one's memory of them, but instead they've been tortured into compliance with the needs of a standard movie musical.
Chicago Sun-Times - 3/10 by Roger Ebert From what dark night of the soul emerged the wretched idea for The Nutcracker in 3D? Who considered it even remotely a plausible idea for a movie?
San Francisco Chronicle - 3/10 by Peter Hartlaub The Nutcracker in 3D will be barely recognizable to fans of the beloved holiday classic. Imagine watching Tchaikovsky's ballet after taking a handful of peyote - on a day when all of the dancers call in sick and the orchestra decides to play a different set of the composer's works.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 3/10 by Liam Lacey Anything but a seasonal treat. This special-effects-heavy, big-budget musical from expatriate Russian director Andrei Konchalovsky (Runaway Train, Tango & Cash) ranks as one of the most misguided children's films ever made.
Los Angeles Times - 3/10 by Gary Goldstein Your Thanksgiving turkey has arrived on schedule and it's called The Nutcracker in 3D.
The New York Times - 3/10 by Mike Hale The talented Ms. Fanning gives a capable performance, and Mr. Konchalovsky and his camera and special-effects crews put a few arresting images on screen, including some frightening metal rat-dogs. But even there they fall short of obvious models like Jean-Pierre Jeunet's "City of Lost Children," and the 3-D treatment adds nothing.
The A.V. Club - 2/10 by Tasha Robinson Nutcracker In 3D doesn't just compound past errors in re-imagining the story. Thanks to a big budget, huge staging, massive overacting, and the non-wonders of post-production 3-D conversion, it adds a wide bevy of new errors.
Time Out New York - 2/10 by Joshua Rothkopf Russian-born schlockmeister Andrei Konchalovsky has flirted with the good kind of bad in the past (Tango & Cash), but here, he's finally made his disaster-piece. Unclean.
