Buy tickets to your local dance company's production of this story, instead. Treat your family to the real deal, and leave this imposter behind.

A Christmas turkey.

It's an oddball fantasy, not the familiar ballet, in a reimagining reminiscent of "Treasure Planet."

At times it has the feel of a computer game: cross the bridge, open the gates, jump off the wall, beat the boss. Only characters in computer games tend to be more unpredictable, with more than one twist.

For all of its sparkly, sweety goodness, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms feels too soulless to really make an impression.

However tasty they look, too much refined sugar and clotted cream can give you indigestion; coming out of this what I wanted was a couple of Rennies. Kids will love it, no surprise considering how many sweet treats they can consume with no ill-effects.
