Where the Wild Things Are (2.5/5)

Before I start this review, I want to say that I don’t remember reading the book as a child, so I can’t compare them.

The basic premise is that this little boy named Max is sad at home, so he runs off and finds an island with these creatures.  He becomes their king, and tried to “keep the sadness out.”  Personally, I did not like the film that much.  The plot was supposed to be deep, but obviously it went over my head, becasue I did not get it.  It started out good, but as time when on it started making less and less sense until finally it ended horribly.  (I don’t want to give anything away, but lets just say it could have ended so much better…they forshadowed a great ending and then did’nt do it.)

Also, I might think twice about bringing small children to see this movie.  Many children under the age of 7 would be terrified by some of the scenes in this film.

Overall, I would not recommend this film.

    Well to each his own. I found the beauty and intelligence in it. Guess you didnt.
