Bridge to Terabithia
A children's fantasy film based on the Katherine Paterson book, shot in Auckland and wiz-banged up by Weta Workshop. Bullied school kid Jesse Aaron befriends new girl Leslie Burke. An attraction between outsiders, their friendship feeds on her words and his pictures; together they create an imaginary kingdom in the woods behind their homes. The film, less about swords and sorcery but more about the power of imagination, has critics saying it's better than 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'.

Consistently smart and delicate as a spider web, Bridge to Terabithia is the kind of children’s movie rarely seen nowadays. And at a time when many public schools are being forced to cut music and art from the curriculum, the story’s insistence on the healing power of a nurtured imagination is both welcome and essential...

Bridge comes with a bright yellow school bus of Americano. I haven't read Katherine Paterson's acclaimed novel, but reliable spies tell me the film is a faithful adaptation...

A respectful book adaptation that gets to honest grips with companionship, growing pains and even The Big D (have a hanky at the ready). Why can't more kids' films be this grown up?..

I watched this movie only because it was on free screening on my local cinema... I wouldn't watch it otherwise. I thought the trailer was quite good. It showed many weird yet beautiful magical creatures. It was a lot like Narnia though. But in the movie not many of these magical creatures were shown. The movie focused on the boring conversations between the...

Whether its for your kids or yourself or both, do not go and see this total waste of time. I dont want to give anything away except that there is nothing to give away. Its crap for kids and adults alike... Its one of those movies that keeps you waiting for somthing spectacular to happen and before you know it your watching the end credits rolling.....
