It would be honest to start by saying that I watched this film by accident. Me and my two kids (9 and 11) were late for Peddington and preferred this one over the one more Santa movie. It was definitely the right choice and surprisingly pleasant viewing. Although it started slowish, gradually raised the pace and it was involving throughout to the end. Good acting, competent CGI, visually stunning, and kids were amazed, can't ask for more. Only serious downside was a bit complicated storyline, my kids obviously missed a point here and there and some explaining was in order. It appears to be based on a children's novel, which neither of us read, and that's something at least kids have to do now. I was especially satisfied to learn that there are some children's films that doesn't necessarily have to be about cats, dogs, squirrels or Teddy Bears. This is by far more challenging viewing for kids although still being a kind of fairy tale magic. Sometimes the nice things come unexpected and such experiences should be shared.
