Story Details
 Clara Stahlbaum (Mackenzie Foy) is anything but a typical girl from the Victorian era. She is good with mechanical tools and loves to solve puzzles. On Christmas Eve, when her deceased mother leaves her an ornate egg that needs to be unlocked, she's baffled that it came without a key. So, she sets out to ask her godfather Drosselmeyer (Morgan Freeman) about this mysterious gift. Little does she know that he has powers of his own. He leads her to a fantasy world where the Land of Sweets, Land of Snowflakes, and Land of Flowers have banished Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren) for her treacherous actions. Clara is suddenly immersed into this world where she needs to find the key, but also restore peace and harmony across the Four Realms.
Others Comment:
As a result, these characters are as interesting as an army of toy tin soldiers, and you know there’s a major problem when the most charming creature is a CGI-rendered mouse. This grand mess seems to be a case of too many cooks; co-directors Lasse Hallstrom and Joe Johnston fumble with a convoluted plot that’s riddled with glaring holes throughout. Devoid of any thrills and excitement, it’s doubtful that even the core younger audience will be engaged enough to sit through this one.
