Cinderella

Fun Rating:8 Stars (8 / 10)
Action:8 Stars (8 / 10)

I have really like what Disney has been doing with their live action remakes! With the exception of Alice In Wonderland, which I found a little weird, I have really enjoyed them.

Cinderella is no different. Lily James, who plays Cinderella, was a very good casting choice. I always enjoy Cate Blanchett, who plays her Step-Mother, and Richard Madden, aka as Robb Stark, was great as the Prince. The rest of the supporting cast was very good, especially Stellan Skarsgard and Helena Bonham Carter, I always enjoy both of them.

There were a few things that I found off in this retelling, but it was a very good story. The setup in the begging where she is actually with her mother and father was very good, but I just don’t remember that being in other versions. I always wondered why she never left home when everyone was mean to her, the explanation of her promise to her parent to “always love the house and take care of it” was great!

Overall I really enjoyed this movie and I can’t wait to see the live action Beauty and the Beast!
