  1. Colorful, noisy and brimming with special effects, the picture may please young audiences simply looking for loud action, but its corny storyline and brittle lack of warmth may discourage both parents and children.

    Under the surface, the movie has a streak of Roald Dahl-style darkness that dilutes the sugar.

    If you have someone under 10 to take to the movies, this one is charming and painless.
