Reviews
Mine: Emotionally compelling, visually striking re-thinking of one of the best children's books of all time. I am not sure the back story adds anything to the impact and I guess I understand why it was need for the movie. Quite powerful.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: An adaptation of Maurice Sendak's classic children's story, where Max, a disobedient little boy sent to bed without his supper, creates his own world--a forest inhabited by ferocious wild creatures that crown Max as their ruler. |
