Pretty good..
12 July 2018 | by Darth_OsmosisSee all my reviews

I have not read the book so can't compare to it. But it's a nice feel good type of movie that has that sense of wonder and magic about it. There are way better movies of the genre out there, and to be fair a lot worse also! It's good enough, but nothing truly "extraordinary".
