Storyline Heading
When Jacob discovers clues to a mystery that spans different worlds and times, he finds Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. But the mystery and danger deepen as he gets to know the residents and learns about their special powers.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Adventure Fantasy - This effects-heavy fantasy/adventure is aimed at family audiences, but like most of director Tim Burton's work, there are a lot of dark and twisted imagery that may prove to be disturbing to young children and their parents, such as scenes with severed eyeballs and the eating of them. So families with very young children may want to steer clear, especially also with numerous scenes with children in danger. Young Asa Butterfield is the true lead here, with the familiar adult actors such as Eva Green and especially Samuel L. Jackson and Judi Dench having much smaller roles.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children can be applauded for telling an engaging stand-alone story while offering the possibility of additional adventures. I wouldn't mind spending another semester with these characters.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average The latest adventure from Tim Burton would seem tailor-made for his tastes but it's a convoluted slog, dense in mythology and explanatory dialogue but woefully lacking in thrills.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good ...it flaunts oddball grown-ups, shows normal kids thrust into the nuttiest situations and makes the strange oh-so-cool. This is pretty much Burton doing an X-Men movie, with a plucky yesteryear vibe and evil Samuel L. Jackson thrown in for extra fun.

NY Post Full Review
Average Burton may give us a bland hero, a tepid love story and a muddled plot but, hey, at least he's got a skeleton army doing battle with giant tentacle monsters at an amusement park.
