This film, directed by Tim Burton, was an extremely interesting movie about fictional children with unique powers. The movie was creepy in a fun way, and the whole movie really had an interesting theme to it. It is more or less about the stories a grandfather told his grandson, and the grandson is determined to find out if the stories are true or not.
The movie provokes many emotions in just a short amount of time. it had sad elements to it, all while keeping the ultimate tone of the movie pretty cheerful. The main character, Jake, played by Asa Butterfield, succeeded in capturing the raw emotion the movie set out to portray. The solid acting gets people hooked throughout the whole movie as it puts people on the edge of their seat. The only negative thing about the movie is that the ending was left on a bit of a cliff hanger, hinting that there could possibly be a second film.
All in all the whole movie was simply amazing. Anyone who is a fan of fantasy movies must go and watch this film.
