Critic Reviews for The Spiderwick Chronicles
The storytelling is economical and brisk. In some ways, Waters approaches it more as a pre-teen horror movie.
Fast-paced and filled with neat special effects, it's a sure kid-pleaser, albeit one that suffers from the very elements that make it go down so easily.
What charm it does have rests largely on Highmore's shoulders. As family friendly fantasy movies go it's pretty solidly in the middle, its resolve to take no chances whatsoever keeping it from ever being more.
Audience Reviews for The Spiderwick Chronicles
A fun childrens movie. Both my daughters 7 and 9 liked it. good effects and Freddie Highmore was excellent.
This was one of the most imaginative films ide ever seen and it still is fantastic to watch even 3 years after its release and ill have to admit it, i did cry at the end of the movie
Not bad, it really was fun actually. This isn't something amazing and a lot of people will forget about it, but it is a really good adaption and sure deserves some recognition.
