Plods. Hackneyed script. This should have been about Lady Jane Digby, which would have been a better film.
As someone who typically watches 1-2 movies in the theater each week, and hasn't seen but two in the past year because so much of what is being produced is simpleminded, I thought this film was terrific. Maybe the intercutting confused reviewers used to linear plot lines, live-action cartoons, nudity, and gratuitous violence and blood-spatter, but I found it riveting and watched it again with my husband, who also found it riveting. We're going to buy this film and add it to our 1000+ DVD collection. I would add that Ana de Armas, who is NOT interchangeable, saw her career skyrocket after this film. Okay, it's a detective story with supernatural elements. If you liked The Sixth Sense, you'll love this film even more, because you won't see the twist at the end coming, even watching it a second time. Yes, the director threw a hissy fit, because he wanted to do what sounded like a self-indulgent art house film and Lionsgate recut it into a tight thriller. I liked the thriller, a lot.
I was never into the Winnie-the-Pooh stories and didn't expect to like this. I did. It was charming. I loved that the voice for Pooh was close to Sterling Holloway's, who apparently did Pooh back in the 1970s (and so many other Disney characters!). Brought back a lot of memories.
Disappointing, given the reviews. Poor script. The character never emerge beyond stick-figures. No feeling of authenticity, beginning with the L.L. Bean outfits. I expected something between "Cry Wolf" and "Quest for Fire." This was just a groaner.
I feel like I've already seen this one.
