“The Spiderwick Chronicles” is the latest fantasy film adapted from a book meant for a family audience. This is one of the better out of these new crop of films. It may be a little too intense for younger viewers, esspecially in the last act of the film. I found this enjoyable, if not forgettable. The effects are good and the performances are pretty solid, but there is really nothing that differentiates this from all the other fantasy films that come out.
