When I sat down to watch "Annabelle Hooper and the Ghosts of Nantucket" I knew very well that it was going to be a movie that was intended for a much younger audience. But still, I gave it a go, because I had nothing better to do at the time, and I do love watching all kinds of movies.
And right indeed, this movie is definitely aimed at a young, possibly early teenage years, audience. And as such, then most of the movie was just lost on me, because I didn't really relate to it, and quite frankly found what was going on less than interesting most of the time.
I am sure that "Annabelle Hooper and the Ghosts of Nantucket" does appeal to the age group for which it is intended and aimed at. But for a more mature audience, then this turned out to be a rather mundane and sort of boring movie. And I had initially expected some supernatural things to be going on, given the title of the movie, however that was not really the case.
The movie does have some good enough acting performances, but of course, the style of acting and the dialogue is of course aimed specifically at a younger audience.
My rating of the movie is a less than mediocre 4 out of 10 stars, as a teenage mystery movie was quite a swing and a miss for my particular taste and preference.
