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.
Los Angeles Times - 3/10 by Gary Goldstein Your Thanksgiving turkey has arrived on schedule and it's called The Nutcracker in 3D.
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.
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 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.
New York Daily News - 2/10 by Elizabeth Weitzman Do not, in fact, go at all. Because aside from the actual nutcracker, most of the crucial elements are missing from Andrei Konchalovsky's bizarre miscalculation. Magic and joy top the list.
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.
