A Wrinkle In Time is a film adaptation of the novel of the same name by the writer Madeleine L’Engle, published in 1962 and directed by Ava DuVernay. This is the first film ever made by a black woman director with a budget of $ 100 million. Despite being financed by the Hollywood superhero, the Times have failed to convey the good and meaningful content of the novel, leaving audiences to want to give up. Midway and shaking his head for some unknown reason why Disney can create a disappointing movie work like this.
Storm Wright’s sister, Murder (Storm Reid), Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe) and his friend Calvin (Levi Miller) travel to find Alexander Durray (Chris Pine) Scientists study the mysteries of the lost universe. The brothers are the help of three fairies, Mrs. Which (Mindy Kaling), Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling) and Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon) to conquer space dimensions and save Dr. Murry from the deep darkness. abysmal It is a story for children, the content of A Wrinkle In Time is only attractive to the young audience and too boring for adults. Moreover, the messages and lessons in the film are too familiar and outdated for the time being, such as “the power of love,” “the power of light,” ” all over the universe “… because so many similar messages have been made before. Perhaps the content of A Wrinkle In Time was only relevant to the time when the novel was published in 1962.
A Wrinkle In Time was adapted into a television series once in 2003 and aired on a Canadian radio station, but failed to catch the attention and frustration. But now, despite being made by the big Disney, the movie version of A Wrinkle In Time is still not much better. The film does not convey the essence of the original that thousands of readers praised. Throughout the film, audiences will see other characters praising Meggie as “great”, “extraordinary”, “special” but not seeing her real talent and strength beyond the sentences. Little talk about physical knowledge. Even at the end of the film, this character has no breakthrough. The character Charles Wallace initially seemed quite interesting, smart, lovely, but later on was too “dull” compared to age and the lines are too philosophical, deep compared to a 5-year-old. The performance of child actor Deric McCabe as Charles Wallace character was manipulated by the creature “IT” really only suitable for comedy programs for children because it “too much tolerance” compared to adults and only made the adult audience leave immediately.
A Wrinkle In Time is a mixture of science and magic, between modern and fairy tales (quite similar to the Enchanted), but the details are not elaborate, which makes the film does not have any features. and as a mess. Especially the scenes with the real and virtual details challenge the determination of Meg. However, the most catastrophic thing to mention is the visuals and effects of the film. The color of the movie is generally pretty and brilliant, especially in the trailer and in the beginning. But from the second half of the year, the audience will feel as if the actors are standing in front of the blue fonts and the beautiful scenes in the film are clearly made from the computer. The picture of the movie is only beautiful on the poster and in the trailer, while the film can not be any more fake. It’s hard to believe Disney’s $ 100 million movie deal is so badly crafted.

The only highlight of the film is perhaps Chris Pine as Dr. Murry – the missing father of Meggie. Although only appearing a little from the second half of the film, but Chris has saved the scenario full of episodes and characters just for children. Other actors have not had any outstanding performance, and even Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon have only played the role, not a breakthrough. The cast of children’s actors is completely outdated by recent child actors in films such as It, Stranger Things or The Jungle Book. Levi Miller plays the role of Calvin who can only beat the female audience with a handsome face that is “deadly” and does not help the script or make a dramatic impression on the acting. Besides, the three fairy characters Which, Who and Whatsit sounded interesting, but when the film is nothing special except the colorful, lack of humor, even less than three fairy in Sleeping Beauty.
In spite of the fact that it took nearly 5 years to make the big money, the talented and well-known production team, A Wrinkle In Time, was once again unattainable for most audiences. mature adults. This can be considered a Disney misstep in 2018 when investing too much in a work that can only target young audiences like this. Just as Disney is based only on a part of the novel and changes to fit the current audience’s taste, instead of sticking to the original and rigid version of the story, being different. However, A Wrinkle In Time is still generally entertaining and educational, suitable for parents who take them to see.
