It has plenty of magic, but not enough uniqueness to make it really stand out. I was amused by "Mary and the Witch's Flower," but not overly impressed.

While visually fun & engaging, Mary and the Witch's Flower plays 2/3 of the way through and doesn't know where to go from there. The opening scene is thrilling, draws you in, and then we are transported to the leisurely, atmospheric English countryside, waiting for the pace to pick up again. Unfortunately, the film never recaptures the energy of the beginning, and the great cast of characters also remains in limbo, never becoming truly fleshed out & realized, though a great potential for this is there. The film just needed a little more time in the oven.
