Pinocchio (2022): Movie Review
Plot: The timeless classic.
A wooden puppet embarks on a thrilling adventure to become a real boy.
Review: The narrative structure of Pinocchio is largely the same as that of the 1940 animated film.
In honor of his deceased son, Geppetto, an elderly Italian man, creates Pinocchio. He makes a wish on a star, bringing the puppet to life.
Pinocchio is on a journey to become a genuine boy alongside Jiminy Cricket, who serves as his conscience, under the instructions to be brave, honest, and selfless.
As Pinocchio comes to life and makes an effort to become a genuine kid, he must overcome obstacles, embark on adventures, and make difficult decisions that jeopardize his objective.
However, it is immediately obvious that while the story may be well-known, the enchantment is just missing before Pinocchio can even leave Geppetto's house.
The spark is absent, even though we already adore these characters and the journey the wooden lad must take. It appears that in order to make Pinocchio come to life, The Blue Fairy drained the rest of this world of its enchantment.
HITS: The movie has great visuals.
FLOPS: The narrative is uninspired and doesn't improve upon the original story in any way.
NOTE: The director need to have put forth more effort to enhance the narrative.
