Storyline

1920s Vienna. Nine-year-old Mary lives in a home filled with lovely things and loneliness. Bothered by bratty brother Max and neglected by well intentioned, but distracted, parents, she yearns for companionship and adventure. On Christmas Eve, Mary's beloved Uncle Albert arrives with the gift of a wooden nutcracker doll. Later that night, Mary's imagination brings the doll to life. Introducing himself as "NC," he takes her on a wondrous journey through a stunning dimension where toys assume human form and everything appears ten times larger. But danger lurks. An army of toothy rat creatures, led by the flamboyant Rat King and his devious mother, has unleashed a plot to overthrow humanity. When NC is captured and placed under a paralytic spell, Mary, Max and a spirited band of toy sidekicks must rescue him from the Rat King's clutches and thwart his wicked plans to 'ratify' the world.

Bravo! Grandiosa! Wonderful!
22 December 2011 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

¡Muy recomendable para niños, les encantará!!! Highly recommendable for kids! Do not pay attention to negative posts and make your own judgment (as in everything in life). Of course, everyone has the right to say whatever they think, it's a free world, but it seems to me that in this particular case, bad critics come more from personal idiosyncrasies and prejudice, and maybe envy (which is the active ingredient of most destructive criticism I've seen). I do not see objective evaluations in the few "professional critics" I read for this Nutcracker Movie. What else can I say? Production is superb, acting from the main characters is excellent, settings are beautiful and special effects are very well done. Whatever "ideology" or "political" ideas there may be are just a mere interpretation of historic outcomes that do not interfere with the main story, and the children will most likely filter them out. (I hope there are now more than 10 lines, because this review is taking more time than what I first thought it would). Enjoy the movie! My kids, 8 and 10, really did!
