A Wrinkle in Time – Review

Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time is a colossal disappointment. The classic science fiction novel by Madeleine L’Engle has been turned into a sappy melodrama; utterly devoid of mystery or wonder. DuVernay’s approach to the story is to emphasize its outcast element. The result is a fire hose of gushing positive reinforcement for the bullied, angst ridden protagonist.

I can possibly say that will be GOOD is Chris Pine’s, that’s it. Casting just for the sake of diversity or being politically correct does not make a film, Disney. The effects also, they do not look good. It’s cliche, the characters seem dull and uninteresting (what’s with the costume design?), visually it’s a mix between being bland and generic to action actually good, but not convincing enough for me to watch, and Disney has taken a bit of a toll with their live action films (besides Cinderella and Jungle Book, those were actually good and qualified to deserve praise).
