MOVIE REVIEW: The Last Mimzy

REVIEW SUMMARY: A fine movie for kids, but adults, particularly adult science fiction fans, will find this mediocre at best.


BRIEF SYNOPSIS: Two children discover “toys” from the future sent back to save future civilization from environmental catastrophe. Based on the Henry Kuttner and C.L. Moore short story “Mimsy Were the Borogoves”.

BOTTOM LINE: Stick with the story.


I saw this movie last week and have been meaning to write a full review. Instead I am going to punt and point you to this review by Howard Waldrop & Lawrence Person, who not only cite my own problems with the film, but they also say it way better than I ever could. And with bigger words.
