The House of Magic

Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

This 3D kids’ animation about a plucky kitten adopted by an elderly magician is a mixed bag of tricks: fun and frantic, but disappointingly unimaginative. Abandoned by his owners, ginger tom Thunder finds himself taken in by the illustrious Lorenzo and his menagerie of toys and gizmos, which come to life when no one’s looking. The 3D effects are dazzling, but the script creaks and the characters are thin. Kids who’ve seen ‘Toy Story’ might feel a bit short-changed.
