A young orphan named Lewis Barnavelt aids his magical uncle in locating a clock with the power to bring about the end of the world.
Jack Black is in a redemption phase for me, he hasn’t been funny for a while not since Gulliver’s Travels (2010) in fact. This certainly isn’t doing much for him, but it’s a step in the right direction.
Starring him, Cate Blanchett and Kyle MacLachlan this family feature is quite dark in places, lacks enough laughs to be called a comedy and really brings no surprises to the table.
What I’m saying is that The House with a Clock in Its Walls is basically a very generic paint by numbers Hollywood family movie, it just has a competent cast to rise it above mediocrity.
Sure I’m not the demographic, but I liked Goosebumps (2015) which was a very similar formula. Black is great, Blanchett is great, the whole thing though was played a tad safe for my liking.
A couple of chuckles are to be found
Some poor cgi
Not funny enough for a comedy
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
There is hope for Black yet
Kids shouldn’t lead films, they suck. In fact they should be seen and not heard…….scratch that not seen and not heard.
