Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children 3D

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children 3D

Tim Burton adapts the bestselling novel by Ransom Riggs about a seemingly ordinary boy (Asa Butterfield, Ender's Game) who comes across a home for unusually gifted children, ran by the enigmatic Miss Peregrine (Eva Green, Dark Shadows). Co-stars Samuel L. Jackson, Chris O'Dowd (The Program), Terence Stamp and Judi Dench.

Jacob "Jake" Plowman (Butterfield) grew up hearing fantastic tales from his grandfather Abe (Stamp) about children gifted with an array of powers. All dismissed by Jake's parents, of course... After Abe's sudden death, they send Jake to therapy to deal with the tragedy and the strange events surrounding it. When he eventually travels to the setting of Abe's tales, Jake finds more truth in his grandfather's stories than he ever expected, finding his way to Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and meeting those that live there - kids who can control fire, air, or have unique physical powers. But with this exciting discovery comes a danger to Jake and his new friends in the terrifying form of Mr. Barron (Jackson), leader of monstrous scientists with a particular appetite that only peculiar kids can satisfy.

Goldman’s frequently amusing script is the secret ingredient that makes “Miss Peregrine” such an appropriate fit for Burton’s peculiar sensibility...

Like four or five Harry Potter books squeezed into a single movie: it makes precious little sense.

Mr. Burton's attention to detail and to the ebb and flow of tone (scary, funny, eerie), as well as his sensitive, gentle work particularly with the child actors, make each new turn another occasion for unfettered imagination.

It gels as Tim Burton’s best (non-musical) live-action movie for 20 years.

For much of the film's length we find him in his element, taking advantage of what was clearly a generous budget to indulge his fantasies.

There is some genuinely frightening imagery on display, from Franken-toys to faceless horrors. Then again, a lack of scares is often a lament about modern-day kids' cinema.

If the film had remained focused more on the improbabilities of this love story, it might have emerged as something rather special.

While it's neither as dark, funny nor peculiar as you’d expect from Tim Burton, there’s still much here to admire.
