Had a lot of expectations to this one, and I'm sorry to say it didn't quite live up to them. A good film, nevertheless, and Saoirse Ronan was amazing! She deserves all the credit for this one.
Once again Jackson overcrowds his film with flashy CGI that ultimately ends up feeling like style over substance. Not a terrible film by any means but Jackson seems stuck in a fog of reliance on post production visuals that keep his work from transcending into something more cohesive and effective. Performances vary and there are entire sequences that feel completely out of place and unnecessary. Ultimately the things it gets right are slightly overshadowed by the perpetual amateur nature of Jackson's sensibilities as a filmmaker.
Beautiful movie adaptation of her imaginative "above-middle-world", from which she cannot get into heaven without trying to help the investigation on Earth on the sting of her mysterious death. Tucci plays creepy. I started reading the book when it came...
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
