    I pretty much agree with everything you said. I liked the monkey and the china doll even more. The movie looked great. I was captivated by the world it created.

    Was slightly less enthralled with the unimaginative storyline though. It’s The Wizard of Oz redux with a sex change for the protagonist. But overall I was entertained.

    Final thought: If you have kids, then take them to see this. It’s fun for the whole family.

      Definitely agree on the “family film” aspect. I didn’t see it so much as a “Wizard of Oz” redux because of the significant difference in the actual characters. It definitely tried to be Wizard of Oz in the most annoying of ways at times, but there are enough stark differences that I wouldn’t say it’s too similar (except maybe in style).
