The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018)
Critic Consensus: Lacking a transporting yuletide story or dazzling dance routines, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is a hollow holiday confection that's lovely to look at -- and easy to forget.

Critic Reviews for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
But like A Wrinkle in Time, Nutcracker and the Four Realms is an expensive but clunky fantasy, mashing together mythical elements but mostly hitting discordant notes.
Perversely, a family film this is not: The Mouse King -- actually a writhing body of mice all working together as one moving mass -- is the stuff of children's nightmares.
[It] creates magical, fantastic scenes that should utterly amaze audiences. Yet, the all-important emotional bonds between the characters feel thin and scripted. Where's the excitement? The sense of discovery? The amusing comic interplay?
Be forewarned that Disney's latest holiday offering has reprocessed nothing but bits, pieces, slivers and chunks of Nutcrackery into a colorful, sumptuously produced confection with barely detectable nutritional value.
Maybe see it for the effects work and production design, both of which are nothing short of spectacular.
