The Nutcracker in 3D (PG)


This film botches history with a trashy narrative that barely resembles Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet. There’s hardly a nod to the traditional storyline as Mary (Elle Fanning playing the character that is normally named Clara) and the Nutcracker Prince are swept up in an epic war against an evil Rat King (John Turturro) his sci-fi themed giant rodent soldiers.
