Director Ava DuVernay has a light touch with these early scenes, though she gets seriously bogged down in special effects as the film goes on.

Judged on its own terms, A Wrinkle in Time is a pretty good, perhaps even a quite good, movie. But it is a children's movie. See it with a child or--as DuVernay recommends--with a child's wonder. Otherwise, probably don't bother seeing it at all.

A Wrinkle in Time is magic. Pure, unadulterated magic. It's the kind of film that shines a light into the darkness, that is more than the sum of its parts.

Despite decent performances and visuals, "A Wrinkle in Time" is a convoluted and unbelievable mess.

The film projects rather than develops, indicates instead of embodying. It is dramatically inert and because of that consistently fails to compel the audience.
