    Modern films incorporating time and space are usually extremely
    ambitious and creatively difficult, but with Walt Disney
    Pictures making another go at a classical novel to start off the
    year, will it deliver? Time to hop in and find out in the
    sci-fi family adventure, "A Wrinkle In Time".
    "A Wrinkle In Time", based on the 1962 novel of the same name
    by Madeleine L'Engle and directed by Ava DuVernay,
    centers around sensitive, but smart Meg Murry, played by
    teenage actress Storm Reid, whom after meeting with three
    celestial beings send her, her brother, and her friend on a
    planet-hopping journey to rescue his trapped scientist father.
    While the original source material is based on a white
    family overcoming the cynicism of different cultures, director
    Ava DuVernay makes the effort to confidently universalize a
    modern style and cast, including the creation of a biracial
    female protagonist undefined by the decade that the novel was
    released. Unfortunately, even though DuVernay is one of only
    three women to generate a Disney blockbuster with over a $100
    million dollar budget, the tolerance of all the sloppy
    dialogue, underwhelming script, and overloaded narrative is
    dependent on how old the audience member is. The visual
    effects on each world, its antagonist called 'The It', the
    colorful costuming, and music by 'Game of Thrones' veteran Rawin
    Djawadi, uplift the journey some, but its overall tone of
    cinematography draws comparisons to 2015's 'Tomorrowland', the
    last Disney-centric film that underwhelmed expectations.
    Actors Chris Pine as the big idea scientist and father, Dr.
    Alex Murry and Deric McCabe as Meg's brilliant kid brother,
    Charles Wallace Murray, were the biggest standouts in an ensemble
    cast that was ultimately unmemorable, including the three
    Mrs. of astral travelers; Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit, and Mrs.
    Who, played by Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy
    Kaling, respectively. Storm Reid and Levi Miller as the film's
    main leads give missed opportunities with their
    performances in believing that their internal insecurities are
    anything dynamic or worth saving - their relationship is
    especially bland and uninspiring. Lastly, the biggest
    frustrations lie in the concepts of sentimentality and unanswered
    resolutions throughout its narrative, combined with rushed
    pacing, heavy-handed world-building via the method of
    transportation with a tesseract, and an effective big scope
    picture overshadowed by specific moment-to-moment details, giving
    nothing less than a vibrant, but shallow kids film. Therefore, "A
    Wrinkle In Time" shines bright once this visually diverse and
    ambitious world is shown to audiences, but its broad,
    unorthodox narrative from beginning to end disconnects the
    imagination and wonder for everyone else - except for the
    kids. I give "A Wrinkle In Time" 3 out of 10 stars.
