A Wrinkle in Time | English Review #16

A Wrinkle in Time is one of those movies that I absolutely wanted to see in the movies but unfortunately it was canceled after a very short time. Finally, I was able to catch up on the movie in the home theater and well … somehow the spark did not jump over but let me go further!


Core facts:

Title: A Wrinkle in Time

Directed by Ava DuVernay

Runtime: 110 minutes

Genre: Science-Fiction/Fantasy

Releasr: 2018


Meg Murry and her adoptive brother Charles Wallace are considered singers at school. The life of the two is also not easy since the father of the physicist Alex Murry after an experiment, four years ago, disappeared without a trace.

One day, the three ladies Mrs. Whatsit, Who & Which enter into the life of the siblings. With the help of so-called tesserns, traveling through space and time without technical aids, the mysterious, eccentric ladies want to help the siblings to find their father and to conquer the darkness in the universe.

Together with Meg’s classmate Calvin, they both embark on the long, arduous and extremely dangerous way to find their father and drive the darkness away so that love returns to the hearts of people …


First the positive aspects of the film,of which unfortunately there are not too many. Visually, the film looks just bombastic and is a real eye candy. Rarely, fantasy, science fiction and subtle scary elements are so well combined as in the time puzzle. The different worlds are visually very pleasing and captivate by the variety. Unfortunately, this is also the biggest strength of the film.

Although both the actors and the plot to convince or please like the movie simply missing the typical Disney magic that characterizes the productions of this studio. This results in a fundamental problem.

A Wrinkle in Time, in spite of his outstanding approaches, is simply no fun and does not manage to emotionally tie the viewer to what Bambi or Guardians of the Galaxy are doing.


All in all, A Wrinkle in Time remains a film that offers many good approaches and a grandiose look, but lags far behind its possibilities. In essence, the movie is really good but the absence of the Disney magic and the accompanying lack of emotional attachment, the film manages not to captivate or inspire.

Thus, I forgive for the time puzzle unfortunately the rating conditionally worth seeing.

That’s it from my side. We read in the next post!
