CINDERELLA (Theatrical Release USA 2015)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

—not as good as the 1950s animated version of the Cinderella story—sticks to the original story more closely than many remakes have done. The scenes of making the carriage suitable to carry a princess are poorly done for realism. Other than that, the movie runs on a straight forward story telling line with no unpredictable deviations. Fairly good watch for a child/adult share.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. But, the original 1950s animated film surpasses this live action remake for entertainment value and superior story telling.
