An amazing visual experience lacking good plot and storytelling
12 December 2016 | by angelamarkovic25See all my reviews

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children is a movie adaptation of Ransom Riggs' bestselling novel by the same name.The movie follows Jake's adventure as he unfolds the mystery behind his grandpa's stories and learns his own peculiarity.

It was directed by Tim Burton-the master of creating stunning visual films and kind of grotesque yet likable plots and characters.Just the first seconds of this film show that it was directed by Burton;it's beautiful and sort of airy,with a vibe of a dark fairy tale.

Even trough the visuals were stunning,everything else,well,was average.The plot,storytelling,characters,ending-everything.What i really liked about Ransom Riggs' novel was the details that make the characters:their past,their adventure in finding themselves and accepting their peculiarities,their relationship and views of the world etc.In the movie adaptation the characters are plain and lifeless,they don't have a backstory of any sort and they are reduced to only their peculiarities.The biggest thing that buged me about the characters is that they are drastically changed and not anything alike those from the book;we're talking about changed ages,looks,names and peculiarities.So,if you really liked the book and it's characters,you will probably be disappointed with these ones.

There are huge plot holes and errors in story telling.It feels rushed and underdeveloped,expesily the ending,which was the biggest disappointment for me.

The actors did a good job at portraying the characters,all except Asa Butterfield who portrayed the main character,Jake Portman.It felt forced and i didn't feel he did his best in portraying his character.

So,in conclusion:if you just want to feast your eyes on something pretty and couldn't care less about anything else,watch this movie.
