CRITIQUE & REVIEW: “Night at the Museum" a hoot

Night at the Museum is a very entertaining movie with a neat concept. But I am left with the feeling that they could have done so much more with it. The movie will most likely make a bunch of money and require a sequel. Maybe in that movie they can really get into the idea of inanimate objects coming to life after hours in a deeper way. It is well worth the money to see it on the big screen but a wait for DVD is fine.

Look: 8
Story: 5
Acting: 7
Goal: 7.5
Intangibles: 6
Overall: 7

The above scores are based on a 10-point scale.

  • Look has to do with the visual artistry of the film.
  • Story rates the how compelling the film’s plot is.
  • Acting rates the overall performances of the actors.
  • Goal measures the success of the film at accomplishing its goal… does a comedy make you laugh, does a thriller cause goose bumps.
  • Intangibles score any special circumstances or accomplishments the movie deserves to be recognized for.
  • Overall rating is not an average of the other categories, just this reviewer’s impression of the entire work and how I would rate the film to a friend.
