Inkheart ★★

Despite the cast an Oscar-bait movie would kill for, let alone a matinée movie such as this, and a premise rife with possibility, Inkheart felt flat, lacking in magic. Which was a little bit disappointing, as if there was one thing this movie relied on, it was magic.

Despite the fact I've never read it, I suspect children (and children at heart) would get more out of reading the book this was based on.
