I dare people to suffer through it, but if you want a brilliant adaptation of Nutcracker, PLEASE see the 1986 version by Carrol Ballard and design by the "Where the Wild Things Are" artist Maurice Sendak, and avoid this film, unless you're drunk, stoned or bed ridden.
The problem is we all have this sparkling, magical, happy association with Christmas, well not everyone, but most of us, try our best to make it the happiest time of the year for our children, And the Nutcracker has been a part of this American festive occasion for two generations. "Visions of sugar plums dancing in our dreamy heads"...
But nooooo...we have to give children visions of snarling, murderous, sadistic Rat Faced Nazis for a long...long time. Explosions, threats of 'biting the fingers off of our heroine, one finger at a time'...isn't that special. What then?..replace dreams of toys and deleirous, magical happiness..with a bleeding nightmare?
Who are these people who decide to spend the money producing slimy crap like this?
As the other reviewer said, don't let the sparkling , smiling, hppy faces on the cover fool you. That to me, is the purist and cruelest example of deception possible. DEceeption, bait and switch, slobbering greed..."visions of a film to be bought over and over, and played again and again, like Tchaikovsky's masterpiece..laughing all the way to the bank year after year. Well guess what,
Rat Faced Producers...you have blood and gore on your faces. There is a special place in Hell prepared just for you. Tons of vermin. Enjoy your undeserved wealth while you can.
