INKHEART (USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Inkheart begins well, blandly flags in the middle of its story, and then ends well. The story itself is original and tells itself well. Definitely not a re-watch except for the intellectual looking for a deeper meaning.

Storyline

A man brings characters to life when he reads books.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Iain Softley for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Toby Emmerich, Andrew Licht, Ileen Maisel, and Mark Ordesky for making the film possible.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The movie ‘kinda’ works, but not to its greatest potential.
