Look kids! A walking tree! Wow! You’ve never seen anything like that on a cinema screen bef… Wait, what’s that? Lord of the what? Oh, right.
Still, though… a magical fantasy land that our heroes reach via a seemingly ordinary method (in this case, a rope swing). A land brimming with strange creatures and dark power! That’s new… Um… The Chronic-what-cles of Narnia? Now you’re just being picky.
All right, so The Bridge to Terabithia doesn’t exactly look like it’ll be offering a hell of a lot that’s new in a world already laden with Rings, Potters, Eragons and Narnia. But still, adapted from Katherine Paterson’s award-winning book, it should at least be a diverting trip to the flicks for the ankle-biters (the American rating even says it contains “bullying, some peril and mild language”… Well, cripes!). And it promises plenty of the spectacle we’ve come to expect from such movies.
