Where The Wild Things Are is one of the most satisfying kids films I've seen in quite a while. The movie does however have certain moments that are too dark for children, particularly where The Wild Things threaten to eat Max. Either way, Where The Wild Things Are is visually beautiful, has great voice acting, a strong lead from Max Records, and a heartfelt insight into the emotional complexities of children Max's age. When given thought, The Wild Things are a mirrored image of Max's emotions. Where The Wild Things Are is wild, charming, and fun.
