What the Critics say
Gabi Zietsman The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is very obviously a Disney film, with some similar stylings to that of the modern Alice in Wonderland series, and while the story is unimaginative and predictable, its beauty is what will entertain the audience. Ballet lovers will be enthralled by it, and the younger generation will fall in love with Nutcracker anew that luckily isn’t Barbie.
Tomatometer Lacking a transporting yuletide story or dazzling dance routines, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is a hollow holiday confection that’s lovely to look at -- and easy to forget.
