children’s tale about naturally enough kids who find a box of
magical objects that give them secret abilities that set them apart
from normal folk. They are introduced to this world by a talking
rabbit named Mimzy who explains how to use the “toys” in the box and
sort of acts like a guide to the kids.
course with toys like these which apparently come from the future,
comes a certain degree of responsibility and quickly the children,
named Noah and Emma, realize that they are destined to save the
world. Provided of course that anyone in the parent world will
actual listen and believe them!
The whole movie feels a little rushed to be perfectly honest and you
don’t fully get the sense of wonder that should be felt by the
children as they explore this wonderful new world that they’ve been
given insight to. I would have loved to see a lot more hijinks with
the gadgets, in an ain’t it cool type way.
That said, this is an enjoyable flick that the smaller kids will
like, however it might start to grate on teens. For a rainy day
though, your young’uns will lap it up and give you a few hours to
get the ironing done.
