Mini Review: January 23
by John P. McCarthy

Here is a Mini Review from Cineman Syndicate of Inkheart, a movie opening on January 23, 2009:

INKHEART. Not every young-adult best-seller can make a successful transition to the screen. Cornelia Funke's popular book about a father and daughter who bring fictional characters to life by reading aloud certainly doesn't. First, it's necessary to buy Brendan Fraser as a bibliophile. Second, you must overlook sloppy directing and cinematography, choppy editing, and middling special effects. Helen Mirren and Jim Broadbent try their darndest to inject haughty whimsy into the proceedings, while Paul Bettany and Andy Serkis suffer as literary creations trapped in the real world. The concept is worthy but the execution leaves viewers' heads caught in the library and their feet in the cineplex. BORING ADVENTURE. Capsule review by John P. McCarthy. 

Director: Iain Softley

Running Time: 103 minutes.

MPAA Rating: PG
