Honestly speaking, I didn’t intend to watch this movie. I watched it on theater for a friend’s sake. But at the end, I guess I liked it more than my friend did. Director Tim Burton’s film, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is based on the best-selling novel by American author Ransom Riggs.
Miss Peregrine is the headmistress of a small school and harbors superpower children (it reminded me of X-Men & Harry Potter series). The story also roamed around a teenage boy Jake who, following a tragic death of his beloved grandfather, follows clues that take him to an abandoned orphanage on a mysterious Welsh island.
Miss Peregrine has the peculiar gift to manipulate time and to change herself into a Peregrine Falcon. She has been living the same day again and again for ages with his special children. This newfound information takes Jacob on a time-traveling, magical journey that changes his life forever.
The enigma and uncertainty deepen as Jake gets to know the children and discover their special powers and their peculiar enemies. Sooner or later, Jake discovers that only his special “peculiar power” to see the monsters can save others.
Film’s visual effects are amazing and a treat for the eyes. The young cast and creative team of Miss Peregrine does an incredible job. The movie is made with 3D effects which are great and gives us an unforgettable experience. Thus if you love adventure, fantasy and if the kid inside you is still alive, you must go & watch it. Stay Peculiar.
