The Lovely Bones

High-Def Digest
26 April 2010
  • Summary: Personally, I'm not a fan of this movie. Its ugly story and choppy style give it a nearly unwatchable feeling, couple that with Peter Jackson's tendency to over-direct and you have an end product that's a bloated melodramatic mess.

  • Conclusion: The Lovely Bones is a movie that's going to divide audiences. It ultimately has more going for it than not, particularly in Jackson's master craftsmanship and ability to manipulate his audience even through a premise that's not just assumed but bluntly stated early on in the movie.

10 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Everything about Peter Jackson’s adaptation of Alice Sebold’s bestselling book The Lovely Bones is worked out to an excruciating fault. The décor is precise for the early-1970s middle-America setting, with photo cubes, period knickknacks, and hideous wallpaper dominating the sets.

  • Conclusion: Like The Lord Of The Rings, The Lovely Bones does a fantastic job with revered, complex source material. As terrific on terra firma as it is audacious in its astral plane, it is doubtful we’ll see a more imaginative, courageous film in 2010.
