The Nutcracker and the Four Realms should be called Clara and the One & a Half Realms. The movie is dry and feels like only the bare minimum attempt was put into making the film. The story feels completely trimmed down (may come from the replacement of the director and most of the film being reshot), the ballet number (signatures of the Nutcracker) aren't shot in a way to draw the audience in and even the look of the film doesn't stand up to the typical Disney standards (Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Jungle Book, etc). In the end we're not sure who would really find this film appealing. It doesn't capture the moments from the countless plays, movie adaptions and books. It also doesn't have enough spectacle to hold the attention of kids. So who is it for? We're not sure.
