Into the Woods Movie Review

Into the Woods is the musical mash-up of Jack and the Beanstalk, Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Cinderella linked together with a cursed witch and baker who wants a baby. The story itself is very clever in how it links the four Grimm stories together by the witch needing a milky cow, red cape, hair the colour of corn and golden slipper. Unfortunately the film seems overly long and dreary. The songs aren't particularly catchy and have a very similar mundane tune to them. Despite a stellar cast including Streep, Depp, Blunt and Pine, the leading man is James Cordon. YES JAMES CORDON?! What and how the hell he went from presenter of League of Their Own to Hollywood musical I have no idea. He also does't have the acting chops to stand against them either. So despite a good story its ruined by long run time, boring songs and a weak lead. Shame our first film of 2015 is a lemon!
