Nice to see this film is getting well recieved, despite the fact there's a lot of cliches and schmaltz. I for one cried maybe six times throughout the film, laughed multiple times, and generally had a great time with this.
"Wonder" — or "I'm Not Crying, You're Crying: The Movie," as I bill it — benefits from coming out a time when we, if anything, should really think about making America more cordial again. It's a cinematic iteration of the golden rule, and it mostly works as a sincere attempt to humanize multiple character beyond its main boy, who has to overcome bullying among other things. It's cute at times, but also too saccharine
Wonder(ful), brilliantly cast with a good script. Bit clichéd in places but fleshed out well with great believable characters
I was expecting a fairly generic film but was pleasantly surprised. As soon as I saw the bigger sister I thought they wouldn't flesh out her role, but she, for me, was integral, she is kind and caring but she is still a teenager with her own problems
76/100 (Bu tarz filmlerin en büyük dezavantajı belli bir seviye üstüne çıkma şansları yok. Çünkü kitabın neyini değiştirebilirler ? Gerçekçi bir öykünün neyine dokunabilirler ki? İnsanlar bu bilindik hikayelere düşük veriyor ama bence artık böyle sıradan ama insanın içine işleyen basit filmler kalmadı. Bu durum beni de etkiledi. Aldığım duygu 9/10'luk olsa da filme 7/10 vermeyi uygun gördüm...)
Movies aimed at kids that don’t insult their intelligence are rare, and Wonder is one of those rarities. Befitting a film about appearances, it seeks to humanize big sisters, bullies and bad friends and show that everyone has their own cross to bear. Though the end gets predictably saccharine, this is a surprisingly mature exploration of juvenile pain and bullying that should be required viewing in all schools.
