Somewhat clunky but mostly faithful to the book.

I haven't read the book, but I can't imagine, given its popularity, that it would have been read by as many people as it has if it were as mundane as this movie.

Audience Reviews for A Wrinkle in Time

An adequate telling of the kids fantasy sci-fi adventure. The direction could've been more interesting. CGI effects tainted some of the scenes. The music was good. I think the flat camera direction and editing could've been more dynamic to make the story more exciting.

Only love can defeat the darkness. What a wonderfully Disney idea. Personally, I think the darkness looked a lot like New Jersey. This movie is based on an old novel, one that many of us read in school. While Disney tried to adapt it to the big screen, they failed miserably. This movie was way too long and confusing for kids. Even I had a hard time sitting through it. Katie Stuart gives a tremendous performance as Meg, but sadly it was the only note worthy performance. Gregory Smith, one of my favorite young actors, was quite bland, the three ladies were just ridiculously Disneified, and David Dorfman, while adorable, was very repetative. I usually love when old fairytales and Sciene Fiction novels come to life on the big screen, but this was really one I could have done without.

For a movie that isn't even that old, I am surprised at how poor the special effects are. I'm not sure if the movie does the book justice but I think that most of this was cheesy. There were some good parts but most of it was just sort of lame. Great acting however.
