I really enjoyed the first half of this movie. Yeah, it’s not that original and the funny parts are not nearly as funny as they should’ve been but I could’ve just watched those two boys come up with innovative ways to perform their stunts and bring to life everything that Will has imagined for so long. I love the special effects and the way it feels completely integral to the story. The two boys are really fun to watch and I was totally caught up in their exuberance and dreams and loved watching their friendship blossom. Sadly, it eventually became rather trite and sentimental and despite the great performances, I found myself less interested at that point. I feel like I should’ve enjoyed this more than I did finally.

Grade: C+
