The Last Mimzy

3.5 stars out of 5

Better than I would have expected. Like Premonition, a time travel film, only this one (lacking the sex and violence) is pitched at children and families. It is true what the local reviews said: adults can sit through it without being bored or stupified. I wish I were a better reviewer, so I could explain what it is about the tone of the entire film that left me baffled. It didn't seem intentionally or unintentionally funny, but it wasn't fully serious either. The entire time I watched it, I kept expecting to understand what kind of film it was during the next scene, but that never happened. Not to say that the ending isn't telegraphed; if you can't figure out what happens about 20 minutes before the end of the film, you're not paying attention. Sometimes, however, it is the journey, not the destination, which provides the entertainment portion of life.
