Excellent family film
10 September 2017 | by mypetreviewSee all my reviews

This film is a delight. The story and characters are heartwarming and Magnus is just gorgeous. The young cast put in some really good performances. The accents at times seem to slip with a couple of them but overall they carry the film brilliantly. The only criticism I have is that I can't find anywhere where I can purchase a Magnus toy for my boys.

Do yourself a favour, Ignore the trolls. The real critics are spot on with this one.
