A good adaptation of a fantastic musical, the rating does not do it justice.
3 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed the movie a lot, it has been many years since i saw "Into the Woods" as a live musical and the film was a nice reminder of why i loved the story so much back then and still do.

In short: It's DEFINITELY not for everyone and i think that is reflected in the very harsh, partially unjust ratings and comments. The adaptation is very close to the original and executed beautifully though and fans will have a good time watching it.

If you enjoyed the original musical or "dramatic comedy musicals" in general then i recommend watching it.

If you expect some Tim Burton-esque "Alice through the Looking Glass" film you will be disappointed because that is NOT what this is despite what the trailer might suggest.

8/10 but i understand that it is only enjoyable for a very specific audience (and definitely not for kids or most teens!).
