Hello and Welcome Reviewers!
Today I’m reviewing Cinderella.
When her father unexpectedly passes away, young Ella finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother and her daughters. Never one to give up hope, Ella’s fortunes begin to change after meeting a dashing stranger.**
The classic tale of a young girl who’s heart is pure as gold comes to the big screen in live-action form. This rendition of Cinderella brings back all of the memories from watching the 1950’s version by Disney. Bring out the entire family to relive this classic story.
I give this movie a 8.2 out of 10.
This Cinderella review contains possible spoilers. You’ve been warned.
** Warning, Possible Spoilers!!!! **
- Lily James is a great Cinderella. She portrayed the character quite nicely.
- This movie could bring the sane feel to the younger crowd as the classic 1950’s animated version did to the older crowd. Every scene takes you on a journey.
- The CGI was impressive. The transformations of the animals worked out well for the story. The transition between the golden carriage and the pumpkin looked amazing on screen.
- Cinderella and the prince really showed a lot of chemistry. They joked with each other and brought some realism to the romance. You believe they really care for each other.
The biggest subtracting factor to this movie is the closeness to the animated version from 1950. If you’re a person whom watched the first telling from Disney then you will have deja vu. They take each part of the movie and just put it into live-action form.
The fairy god-mother could have been a bit better represented. When she came on the screen it took away slightly from the entire movie.
It would be a different movie if they added in a twist to the story. You could keep true to the Cinderella story while injecting some fun moments into the whole thing. They could have added the two extra nights at the castle from the Grimm stories and created more romance.
