Alex Isaacs quote iconThe House with a Clock in Its Walls has impressed and disappointed critics all around the world in (almost) equal measure.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconTo be fair, it’s nowhere near a travesty, but its early meandering and flat nature, third act danger that goes too big in scope when it should have remained much smaller, and overall missed opportunity of being far more creative and imaginative than it ultimately is, means it could have used some more magic to make it better than it is.
