Into the Woods Reviews
The cast deserve better. Yes, they are fair singers, but they seriously need better (Like Depp in Sweeney Todd!)
I'm not writing this to stop you from watching, I'm just saying it is a lot less than I expected. Throughly disappointed as I am fond of Sondheim but this probably does not stay true and is utterly confusing. Good for kids though.
A true return to movies like: Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, this film really shocked me with the story, acting and Shrek esq feel. I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed it and will reccomend it to anyone. The songs are so catchy (especialy the title song) and performed so well by all the actors. And lets be honest, you cannot really go wrong when Meryl Streep is involved. For me I was pleasantly surprised at the story. It was not what I was expecting and I think that's the main reason why I enjoyed it so much.
My only 2 issues are that the film could have been a bit shorter. It does feel too long. And that there is not really any indepth character development. But hey, not every film is perfect. In Short I had a lot of fun and feel it's definetley worth a watch.
