Critic Reviews of "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children"
The AtlanticOctober 04, 2016
The young peculiars have names, but they don't get much by way of backstory or personality. Despite the movie's insistence that they are special, Miss Peregrine ultimately reduces them to the very thing the world rejected them for: their peculiarities.
Rolling StoneSeptember 30, 2016
The film feels overstuffed, with Tim Burton repeating tricks from his greatest hits (think Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands). But stick with it just for those times when Burton flies high on his own peculiar genius.
New York Daily NewsSeptember 30, 2016
Tim Burton is on macabre message in his latest offering - "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" - an adaptation of Ransom Riggs' popular trilogy.
NPRSeptember 30, 2016
The result feels less like a thoughtfully-conceived franchise-starter than a picture that was rushed out of the editing suite prematurely.
Christian Science MonitorSeptember 30, 2016
To me, Burton's movies always seem a full grade too grotesque for the whimsical stories he is trying to tell... At least in Miss Peregrine, his ghastliness fits the fable, although, even at its best, it's fairly generic Burton.
Globe and MailSeptember 30, 2016
It's supremely silly and filled with crater-sized plot holes, but it's a profoundly moving film, too - about trauma, about loneliness, about aging and family.
SFistMarch 23, 2017
Sadly, it will have to be chalked up as another failure.
ScreenCrushMarch 16, 2017
Miss Peregrine's could have been a thoughtful and bold metatextual thesis on Burton's entire career. Instead, like its partially-formed villainous apparitions, it comes frustratingly close to achieving substance.

It could be said that the film is nothing else than X-Men combined with Back to the Future and Groundhog Day seen under the Burtonian magnifying glass. [Full review in Spanish]
El UniversalFebruary 16, 2017
A film that successfully undertakes the doctrinal appropriation of the ultimate ends of humanity, both the finitude and the finality of life, its death and final judgment and its immediate resurrection. [Full review in Spanish]
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)January 01, 2017
Burton's gothic whimsy crackles and cackles gleefully to life with writhing flourishes of the macabre.
