Loved it - The Secret Garden review by LH

Spoiler Alert
19/02/2021

I’m an adult. Thought this film was magical. Not that childish and a great watch for adults too. Very true to the original book, only a little CGI. Some top actors and a beautiful garden/outdoor scenes. Perfect feel-good film for lockdown. Also, great inspiration for anyone coming back from illness. Lovely.

Boring I'm afraid - The Secret Garden review by DH

Spoiler Alert
08/03/2021

This whole film felt very lazy. Was it made for 3D? Lots of effects felt like they were meant to be seen that way? Birds and butterflies zooming into the camera.

Mary is not a sympathetic character, the book is written that way but she did not win me round which I think she should have done. I wasn't even rooting for Colin and his recovery. The only thing I invested in was the dog!

I'm a fan of Julie Walters but nothing for her to do here I'm afraid, even less for Colin Firth. We'd been looking forward to seeing this, kind of wish we hadn't bothered.

Un-offensive but un-inspiring also.

Beautiful film - The Secret Garden review by giantrolo

Spoiler Alert
12/03/2021

Loved this film! It had some exquisite imagery - the scenes when the garden was blooming or dying in response to emotions were so well done. Colin Firth put in an excellent performance as the father, as did Julie Walters as Mrs. Medlock, and there was not one thing that didn't sing in this script and in this film. Very highly recommended!
