Their world is closer than you think

When the three Grace children troubled Jared, his bookish twin Simon, and their sister Mallory move to the ancient Spiderwick mansion, they are at first none too enchanted by the run down Victorian, until they discover a Brownie, an enchanted creature, living in the walls.

They soon find a book Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You that will open their eyes to the invisible, odd, and sometimes dangerous world of dragons and boggarts, phookas and fairies, sprites and goblins that is all around them. When they cross paths with Mulgarath, an ogre, they realise quickly that he will stop at nothing to get his hands on the Field Guide.

Great for the kids. Major plot flaw in that Lucinda as a girl looked to be ten or eleven, but was said to be six and a half. Typical storyline of good v evil. Good acting by the three children and Spiderwick... Read more

Good family movie of imagination adventures. Is typical of its genre, with the sulky disbelieved child coming up trumps after also being the one who starts the mystical troubles, then bringing the family together to fight the mythical beings.

Was a bit disappointed with this but I'm not sure why!

The effects were good but just didn't capture my imagination! And the story left a lot of areas that were not practical - I didn't really... Read more

Male kids are annoying and all are noisy but the creatures and visuals make up for it.

I love this movie, a fantasy adventure even a pair of 20 year olds enjoyed. Very good CGI too.
