Review: Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events

While technically a series (as you can clearly distinguish three episodes tied together to make one movie), it’s a slow series. The unfortunate part in the title though, describes how unfortunate it is again, that this is another movie totally geared towards children and not the total family. This means, no fun at all. Simplistic storytelling and no depth. Also the multiple roles of Jim Carrey aren’t that much fun to see, being too obvious and all. Being totally for children also means story ends do not need any tying up (hence, the “big” mystery to be solved turns out to be something sprung up the writer just so he can close the story with an easy way out, with no explanation of what happened previously). But even then, the pace is too slow, and I seriously doubt if children can muster the patience to sit through this movie. If you ever thought of going to see this movie (and you’re older than 6), think… How the Grinch Stole Christmas, or the evenly bad Cat in the Hat.4.

    That’s not what you told me after seeing the movie. You said the story telling was marvellous…
