For actors work. for interesting adaptation. for special effects. and, maybe, the only sin is to not guess ... the director. sure, it is a Tim Burton. but you have the certitude onlt after the read of credits. because something works well but not in the expected direction. short, you admire the actors and, especially Asa Butterfield . and you reflect about the other roles of each actor. not real fair. but useful for legitimate the interest for a film who could be little...better. or convincing. or example of Tim Burton mark. but, sure, a nice adaptation.
