User Review

a waste of the talent as its disposal

Rating: 4/10


I took my 8 and 6 year old children. My 8 year old is usually quite
forgiving of a bad film if she has popcorn, but when she asked me if I
had liked it she was clearly hoping I said 'no'. We are film addicts
and watch and enjoy a lot of children's films – this was the worst for
a long time, since Space Chimps probably, and made worse by that it
could have been so much better with a little craft to its direction.
And from a director with so much experience as an Editor, it was really
badly edited.

My 6 year old thought it was OK, but there lies the problem – the film
is obviously aimed, in its semi-high-school American 'teen rock' music
pretensions, at a much older audience. A porous plot, even to an 8 year
old, and the embarrassing potential of the cast falls extremely flat.
Mathew Horne seems only to have two expressions in his repertoire and
is in extreme danger of having a bit part comedy career fade fast, and
Anjelica Huston's Scottish accent was insulting and embarrassing – like
a sheltered American impersonating Mrs Doubtfire. Horrid Henry had been
clean cut and Americanised, and really wasn't very menacing at all. I
was surprised we were spared the sentimental 'son, I got it all wrong
but I will always love you' ending: it would have completed the
American airbrushing.
