Matilda Film Review

This is a review about a film called Matilda. It's for kids and young adults  to watch. This film teaches children to be more educated. It also teaches us good lessons to not neglect our children. This film is about Matilda Wormwood an intelligent child and bookworm. She lives with her wicked parents Harry and Zinnia Wormwood. This film is based on the book by Roald Dahl and directed by Danny Devito.

Matilda Wormwood(Mara Wilson) an intelligent child lives with her mean parents and bully brother(Danny Devito, Rhea Perlman and Brian Levinson). They think Matilda is an old hag who should watch more tv and read fewer books. Her parents send her to Crunchumhall Primary school where she has a lovely teacher called Miss Honey(Embeth Davidz) and cruel headmistress on earth(Pam Ferris). Matilda begins to discover that she has telekinetic powers.

This film was amazing. The performance was good. But I think some of the actors need to improve a little bit. The director was the same person that acted out the role of Harry Wormwood. It's just impossible that the the director can't direct and act at the same time. And the actress that played Miss Honey was good. I mean in the book she was wearing glasses all the time but in the film she only wore glasses when she read.

I think the fim was amazing you should either watch it online or on dvd. There are dvds available now in the stores and libraries.


  1. I love the book! Hopefully the movie'll be good too!

  2. I LOVE THIS MOVIE!! It's one of my all-time favorites and EVERYONE must watch it at least once! Thank you for writing about it, Huda :)
