A WRINKLE IN TIME (Theatrical 2018 USA)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.8|5.0 Starsìì

A Wrinkle in Time takes a very long 109 minutes to get to the final story meaning. While costuming and set design completely add to movies like Avatar and the Alice in Wonderland remakes, this film is a good example of costuming and set design that detract from the story rather than enhance the story. This may be due to a conflict in artistic visualization between departments. Watch for Actress Storm Reid’s work. Good job.

Storyline

A young girl takes a journey into another world to look for her missing father.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It’s a long ride to that ‘Oh’ moment. Most audiences will not want to take the long ride for a 'Moment in Time'. The movie lacks heart and fails to engender emotional involvement.
