The Spi­der­wick Chron­i­cles

TV & Satellite Week - - Films -

Fred­die High­more has double the fun in the twin roles of mis­matched brothers who find gob­lins, sprites and fairies – not to men­tion an evil ogre (Nick Nolte) – at the bot­tom of the gar­den of their creepy old house in ru­ral New Eng­land. An old-fash­ioned chil­dren’s fan­tasy ad­ven­ture, the film starts slowly and ends in a bowl of sugar, but there is plenty of magic, sus­pense and ac­tion, and it never makes the mis­take of talk­ing down to its young au­di­ence.
