The film is not smart enough, not thrilling enough, and the whole story feels like a cop out born from marketing hype rather than one grown from well thought out scientific reasoning. It’s a dud.
This is a strained mockumentary that isn’t worth your time.
The tween sci-fi / fantasy genre is the perfect match for director Tim Burton. His signature bizarro style and grim tone fits like a glove with the whimsical, fantastic “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.” This film is spooky, stylish, and wondrously bizarre. There’s a nightmarish vision that’s fully realized and brought to life with a great deal of visually stunning special effects.
