Lives under a disguise, only to reveal itself to something far greater. (✯✯✯✯✯)
Feels conflicted in itself in whether it wants to be a new take on the story or just a mere recreation of its source. (✯✯✯)

Pays its due respects to its influences, if not really going beyond its dreams. (✯✯✯✯)
Mostly harmless but forgettable family fare. (✯✯½)
