As a big fan of the book Where the Wild Things Are this movie had a lot to live up to for me. It not only met my expectations but exceeded them. Max Records did a great job playing Max. It was like he was built to be in this movie. He was allowed to just be a kid which is a rarity in hollywood these days. Spike Jonze really brought the world of the Wild Things to life. It was just as I had thought it would be based on the illustrations in the book. The voices of the creatures were great and they really conveyed strong emotions. The movie was a little dark so I would suggest anyone under 10 not seeing this movie. Overall and excellent movie, and quiet possibly the greatest of the year.
Five out of Five Stars
