Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Re-shoots, changes of director and overruns didn’t bode well for Disney’s The Nutcracker And The Four Realms and for sure it feels like the sum of lots of parts. That said at just over and hour and a half in length and a very game cast there’s quite a lot to enjoy here. Knightly especially seems to revel in her campy Sugar Plum role. Foy is great and the production design top notch, it’s just a shame that Nutcracker just lacks that special something to take the film from good to great.
Best Bit: Keira Knightly
