All the stars who could perform well are provided with a blunt role and they had to do what they had been provided.
The directors hadn’t polished anything specific with the script woven by Ashleigh Powell. However, the characters in the fantasy world are quite decent. With the Award Winning stars, the directors could have designed a better screenplay. The CGI works are good and the cinematography is decent.

Although the film might not impress the elders, it might attract the youngsters. With some flaws, the film manages to engage the audiences. The Nutcracker And The Four Realms- could be watched once!
