May not be suitable for younger children...

Just a warning that the entire movie is not all fun & magic spells but sometimes portrays a darker side of the occult like with the use of blood magic & demon imagery. Keep in mind that the director, Eli Roth, is known for writing & directing horror films such as Hostel & Cabin Fever.

This was a very solid, pleasantly spooky little family film. If you're a fan of the Harry Potter movies and looking for something along the same lines, but maybe a little darker than the first few HPs, this is worth checking out. Jack Black and Cate Blanchett are excellent in it, the story was fun, and I really liked the set design.

This was such a good movie for the whole family! My boys (11 and 15) have watched it four times already. All of the actors were great but the main character, a boy who has his own style and loves the definitions of words, really shines in the movie. And Cate Blanchett was amazing! I highly recommend it.

Fun, but every bit the steam-punky Harry Potter knock-off I expected.

This was such a good movie! Appropriate for older children who don't scare easily, as there are some frightening bits, necessary to the plot. The actors were sensational, but can we talk about Cate Blanchet in a family movie?!? She stole the show for me! The visual affects of the movie were stunning, as were the costumes. Definitely worth watching!
