Screenwriter Ashleigh Powell has radically changed the original story, aiming to give it a modern kick which jives with the zeitgeist, and the result is imaginative.

Ashleigh Powell's adaptation feels like Alice in Wonderland-meets-The-Chronicles-of-Narnia (with a hint of Labyrinth) as a grieving young woman finds empowerment (and herself) in battling fantastic forces.

It's lovely to see a film make bold choices, such as including ballet performed by the remarkable American ballerina Misty Copeland, as both a tribute to its origins and a novel way of telling the story.

As mass-market confection, Nutcracker certainly works well enough, though its delights definitely hark more from style rather than story.

Younger audiences will enjoy the bright colours and fun energy but it's unlikely to leave a lasting impression. Sometimes, that's enough. But don't expect it to become an instant favourite.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms offers spectacular special effects, awe-inspiring costumes, parades, and the stunning dancing of Misty Copeland to songs by Tchaikovsky.

It's sweeping, visually comprehensible, and has a nice tactile, sensuous quality.

It's an oddball fantasy, not the familiar ballet, in a reimagining reminiscent of "Treasure Planet."

Despite the best efforts of its cast and some memorable set pieces, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms feels like a hollow shell of what it could have been, had it been a half hour longer and explored the realms rather than just glanced over them.

Its gorgeous production design, colorful characters, and dazzling costumes are a visual treat, but little about the story proves to be nearly as much of a gift.

Its brief ballet interlude has flair and there's nifty choreography in the action scenes, too, along with lots of bright visual ideas.

Have fun spotting Richard E Grant, Jack Whitehall and Omid Djalili in cameo roles, marvel at the brilliance of Misty Copeland in the film's gorgeous ballet sequence and look out for Mirren as Mother Ginger.

The film is extravagant and predictable at the same time. [Full Review in Spanish]

Mackenzie Foy is enchanting as the brilliant Clara, who discovers a whole new fantastical world soaked in imagery of childhood and dreams.

At its best, what follows is a zany cross between The Wizard of Oz, The Company of Wolves, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and Ab Fab. Knightley is a riot and totally worth the price of admission.
