This movie falls completely flat. The characters fail to evoke any sympathy or interest, the plot is a mismanaged muddle, the jokes are awkward and unfunny, and the dialogue is abysmal. Jack Black positively chews the scenery. Cate Blanchette is miscast. And watching the actor who plays Lewis try to generate tears might be the only comedic success attained here. At no time was there any feeling of tension or danger. Another empty CGI cyclone of a film.

Ruinous treatment of a wonderful bookReviewed bymochie70Vote: 3/10
Orphaned and sent to live with his Uncle Johnathan (Jack Black), Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) soon discovers that his Uncle is a Warlock, and his neighbour Mrs. Zimmerman (Cate Blanchett) is a witch. Together the three of them investigate the mansion that their living in - that formally belonged to a powerful and evil Warlock Issac Izard (Kyle MacLachlan), particularly the mysterious ticking that they can hear at night, seemingly coming from within the walls themselves.
Truth be told, I am probably much older than the target audience for this one. The reviews have talked about this being Eli Roth's first family friendly film but there isn't honestly a lot for the parents in the audience to sink their teeth into. The performances are generally OK, although Jack Black does resort to "Jack Black" a few more times than is really necessary. The story is OK, though it ends somewhat abruptly. Occasionally the CGI is a bit of a let-down, but this is the exception rather than the norm, in fact most of the time the film is visually charming..
It is occasionally a little too scary for some of the younger children who might see it, but most would cope without any issues.
The trouble is that it doesn't really add up to very much. You're unlikely to hate it but you probably won't love it either.
I am wondering why it was rated PG? With all these demons, necromancy, occult - this is definitely not family-friendly movie ever. What next will be approved for children? The trailer was completely misleading.
