Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children Review: Peculiar in Many Ways!
The story of Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children centers on Jake Portman (Asa Butterfield): an average boy who resides in Florida. Tragedy strikes Jake when his grandfather, Abe (Terence Stamp), is mysteriously murdered. Investigating his grandfather’s belongings, Jake discovers that Abe was connected to an orphanage located on Welsh Island. Jake journeys to the island only to find the orphanage is destroyed. However Jake is greeted by Emma Bloom (Ella Purnell) and the other peculiar children who take Jake into the past where the home still stands. There Jake meets Miss Peregrine (Eva Green). There Miss Peregrine explains Abe’s connection to the orphanage which then leads to Jake discovering that he himself is a Peculiar. As Jake discovers a place where he fits in, he realizes that the orphanage is in danger by the group known as the Wights, led by Mr.Barron(Samuel L.Jackson), who seek Miss Peregrine in order to achieve their plan of immortality.
Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children is not the most glamorous of fantasy film, but that is not to say that it was a bad experience. While the like of story and characters straed at times, the movie managed to have a sense of enjoyment thanks to its adventurous plot, likable characters and creative effects. While this blockbuster may not be one of Burton’s best work Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children was indeed a delightful fantasy film with a peculiar sense of imagination.
