Storyline

1920s Vienna. Nine-year-old Mary lives in a home filled with lovely things and loneliness. Bothered by bratty brother Max and neglected by well intentioned, but distracted, parents, she yearns for companionship and adventure. On Christmas Eve, Mary's beloved Uncle Albert arrives with the gift of a wooden nutcracker doll. Later that night, Mary's imagination brings the doll to life. Introducing himself as "NC," he takes her on a wondrous journey through a stunning dimension where toys assume human form and everything appears ten times larger. But danger lurks. An army of toothy rat creatures, led by the flamboyant Rat King and his devious mother, has unleashed a plot to overthrow humanity. When NC is captured and placed under a paralytic spell, Mary, Max and a spirited band of toy sidekicks must rescue him from the Rat King's clutches and thwart his wicked plans to 'ratify' the world.

a dark Nutcracker
6 January 2018 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

It's early 20th century. Mary (Elle Fanning) and her brother Max are left in the care of Uncle Albert (Nathan Lane) as their parents go out for the night. Albert shows the kids his doll Nutcracker. It comes alive during the night and takes Mary to another world. It's a world where the Rat King (John Turturro) has taken over Nutcracker's kingdom.

Nutcracker is a classic Christmas ballet. This is supposedly a dark reinterpretation of the origins of the story. All the Christmas wonder is gone. I doubt the 3D would look any good. I don't like the design of the CGI Nutcracker or his voice. I rather have the kid whom the Nutcracker transforms into. Having Nazi rats is one thing but why is the Rat King Andy Warhol? It makes him too hipster. Turning Nutcracker into a dark fairy tale could be workable but it needs a skilled craftsman. The only good part is Elle Fanning who does a terrific Alice in Wonderland. This is fundamentally flawed.
