Give Boyce and Boyle credit for daring to be strange, but this enchilada is so overstuffed, it's falling apart.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Sends out icky messages about religious belief, morality and greed.

More miscalculated storytelling than sympathetic interest in its contrived plot and precocious plotters.

Precocious children discussing morality with saints aren't nearly as much fun as Ewan McGregor being nailed to the floor with a butcher knife.

...the bottom line is that this just isn't a terribly interesting story, despite the best efforts of everyone involved.

if you're a sucker for adorable, freckle-faced kids, you may not be able to resist the infantile wiles of this movie

In the gospel according to Boyle, he sacrifices storytelling on the altar of eye-catching special effects. After deductions, Millions is only worth a few smiles.

After Boyle establishes Damian, his family and his quirky new community, Millions really starts to lag. The imagination gives way to simple subplots.

The plot meanders around rather longer than necessary, and there's a limit to the number of smart-alecky saints one should have to encounter in a 97-minute period.

The material doesn't approach the sendup of grownup roleplaying in Catch Me If You Can.

What makes Millions quirky is also what prevents it from genuinely immersing the viewer in the story.

Danny Boyle's heart is in the right place and there are some fun moments, but it can't quite overcome its inherent flaws as a slightly over manipulated work

Visually rich but it's poor in logic.

Overdirected from its first frame.

Unfortunately, it's too cute for adults and perhaps too complex in premise for kids.

Boyle confuses whimsy with gas.

Corrupted by a hideous paternalism.
