When I was a child I read the first book in this series, I know I did, I vaguely remember it, but I don’t remember really anything about it. Still, I was excited to see this so as soon as it was out at Red Box and I had time I rented it.

Visually the movie is stunning. The settings and costumes are gorgeous. So bright and colorful and fanciful. I loved them all.

Sadly, the story was lacking. I don’t remember the book, but the movie felt disjointed and it jumped around. It didn’t flow very well. One minute things were progressing at a breakneck speed and then all of sudden you’re looking at flowers in a field. Honestly, I got bored. Things were crazy but it didn’t hold my attention. I didn’t care about what was happening. I liked the characters alright, but you were just thrown into this mad world and it just didn’t work for me. Made me sad because I was hoping for another “Tomorrowland.”

I wanted this movie to work for several reasons, female director, kids sci-fi, but it didn’t.
