The new Oliver Twist
11 January 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What a pleasant surprise! This is such a refreshing film that in middle I actually checked myself gawking at the screen. Henry's acting is purposely timid - actually all the acting is quite laid back and rightfully so. This is a film that is capturing another era of film-making. The other negative reviewer is absurd with his observations.

The entire story line is quick paced when they could have given more time to character development but for me I enjoy when there is imagination left to the viewers and the story line moves quickly.

There was drama and intrigue about how Henry's discovery will play out and you couldn't guess the exact recipe until the end. The supporting actors were all top notch. In a great British way that films of old used to be. From the teacher to the mother to the step-father. The film is a wonderful piece of art.

I am an action movie buff but gave this a watch and was not disappointed.
