Good, but it dragged on

I loved the premise of this movie and it being about a child who loved games and loved to invent them while his father didn't like them. Also the challenges he went through to discover what really happened to his parents and what the tattoo that is on his wrist means. However, I feel this film did drag on and I felt like it was a little too long and started boring me a little towards the ending. Decent film however

Magic realism makes an entrance

Here is a modern classic example of "realismo magico" - magic realism, a literary style which was born in Latin American literature- a style in which fantastical elements are blended into real life. The key difference between magic realism and just a fantasy film for kids are the dream-like elements that are based in emotion which you will see in this film as well. For example, the sinking school// feelings of reality sinking in... or a tattoo that won't wash off// feelings of accepting who you really are, etc. In this really beautiful film, you see Ivan's world change from ordinary to extraordinary, and even when there are moments which are scary, no-one dies or gets hurt. It has a happy ending, with a deep reflection on life intertwined. I would highly recommend this film for anyone studying literature, but also for kids- It's very nicely put together, full of adventure and optimism (things kids really need to see). 8/10.

Recommended for some

The Games Maker is beautiful--the filming, sets and costumes. It's the story of a boy who is growing to be a game inventor. He unravels the secrets of his family's past, and discovers what outside forces are trying to influence his life. You might enjoy it if you like these movies: It's like Harry Potter's coming-of-age story of a talented kid challenged at home and at school. The narrator and strange, funny faces reminded me of A Series of Unfortunate Events. The brave kid and unique companions are sort of like Wes Anderson films, and like the pacing and visuals of Moonrise Kingdom. Other reviews commented on how complicated the story is, and that is the downside. The strings could have been tied up better. The characters he meets seem to be tokens of ideas, but these are not obviously tied into the theme that his life is a game. Knight and Bishop are named after game pieces, but why? The movie could be improved by clearly showing how each step was like a game,and by speeding up the scenes. His life story was mostly like the board game,Candy Land, a colorful path to the end. I enjoyed this movie, and would recommend it to fans of the movies mentioned above, although it is one level below in quality.
