Misguided, misconceived, and misbegotten on every level, The Nutcracker in 3D is a stunning exercise in astonishing cinematic wrong-headedness.

Delivering the cinematic equivalent of a lump of coal in a Christmas stocking, The Nutcracker in 3D is an apparent Scrooge-like attempt by Russian filmmaker Andrei Konchalovsky to forever ruin children's associations with the classic Yuletide ballet.
One of the most misguided children's films ever made.
This non-balletic adaptation by the Russian director Andrei Konchalovsky is something gnarled and stunted and wrong, something that should never have been allowed to see the light of day. How's that for a holiday-ad pullquote?
[It] has so many terrible ideas that the terrible execution is almost irrelevant: Even if the film were well done, it would still be a travesty.
The Viennese scenes, shot on Budapest soundstages, give a new, dreary meaning to "workmanlike."
Spectacularly misconceived, bloated and incredibly ugly...
It's flawless in its flaws, without a single redeeming element to obscure its idealized awfulness.
A frankly bewildering attempt at serious cinema
I have my theories on the true inspiration motivating the madness here. Something tells me if I bit into the negative, it might taste like whisky, insomnia, and repressed childhood trauma.
The whole thing is just so astoundingly wrongheaded.
One of the most wretched, misguided extravaganzas ever mounted on the big screen...a stale schnitzel.
A Holocaust motif? In a children's movie? 'Based' on The Nutcracker? No, we're not making this up.
The film starts out cute and harmless but then turns into an episode of Doctor Who and not a good one either. The talented Elle Fanning at least lights up the screen through-out.
It's a kid's movie. I liked the effects but it was nothing special. The story was a bit messed up. Like I had the feeling that something was not there. It's not bad though.
