It's an interesting way to tell a heartbreaking story a young girl whose life was taken away too soon, and whose family fights to pull the pieces together after their loss.

This movie has about seven different tones it hops around, and it does so at all the wrong times.

Your own peace will come after you walk out, trying hard not to laugh at how crazy-bad it all is.

Unshackled by earthly restraints, Jackson shifts his Weta toolsets into overdrive in a more-is-more free-for-all frenzy.

The Lovely Bones is probably a much better idea for a book than it is a movie, but it's still a very good one, and those don't come along too often.

The talented cast struggles with, and is eventually failed by, the material. They are not aided by their director either, who seemingly stood slightly off screen and urged them to 'act bigger!'

I had a few bones to pick with the story.

The film is such a misfire, such a disappointing collection of failed attempts at emotional affect and confounding storytelling choices, that it seems more like a bad director's attempt to rip off Jackson's style than his own work.

No hay manera de tomarse en serio, al menos no en el marco de una película que debió ser perturbadora y conmovedora en partes iguales, la serie de momentos Kodak imposibles con que Peter Jackson intenta retratar la vida después de la muerte.

Only Tucci's chilling, truly scarier than Hannibal Lechter psychopath holds the far too fanciful scenario together, bolted to planet earth as best he can.
May 16, 2010
The whole plays better than that would suggest, largely due to Jackson's imagination and commanding skill.

Pet peeves and stylistic differences of opinion work against Heavenly Creatures director

For all the efforts of a fine cast, Jackson never gives his human drama the desperation and frustration it calls for...

Interview with Rose McIver of The Lovely Bones: "It was terrifying to see [Stanley Tucci] transform on screen into someone so utterly different from himself."

I never read the novel, so I have no idea if it is as tedious as Peter Jackson's movie.

Artistically and technically, this film is superb, rich in excellent performances, wondrous visuals and compelling ideas. Yet for all its brilliance, The Lovely Bones remains elusive.

Peter Jackson nails the dreamy atmosphere of a film straddling life and death in this story of a teenager caught between Earth and heaven.

Peter Jackson is an infant sitting at the grown-ups table, and this proves once and for all he has no business making movies for adults.
