“The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” Movie (2018) — V. Cruel Bait And Switch!

by Anura Guruge

Click to access IMDb.com listing for this disappointing movie.

DISAPPOINTING — Teischan (12) a connoisseur of “The Nutcracker“, having taken part in two semi-professional productions and having seen the ballet multiple times, including with the ‘Boston Ballet‘.

Flaccid — the Dad, who was not impressed at all, at all. It was a matinee and our two tickets, together, came to $16.50. In reality, that was $9.50 TOO MUCH. Waste of money. Wait until it comes out on TV.

I guess you CANNOT IMPROVE on the original and it was stupid to try.

I am both surprised and disappointed with Disney. They could have and should have done better. This was … well, FLACCID. Really. Flaccid.

It could have been the projection at the theatre we attended — our perennial, ‘Cinemagic‘ in Portsmouth — but the colors were dull. Even dark. More vibrant colors would have helped. Actually anything would have helped.

PLEASE do NOT go to this expecting the dancing, music and story of the original. This is a cruel, very cruel bait-and-switch.
