    This movie is such a magical and touching movie. The actors in the movie are perfectly cast. My favourite part of the movie is when Cinderella gets transformed into her dress. I would die to try on a dress like that. I love this version of Cinderella because it’s like the classic Disney movie but I love the comedy that has been added as well. I would recommend this book to any family who wants to watch a funny Disney movie altogether and still have a good storyline. I give this movie a 10/10

  2. ‘cinderella’ is such a touching movie it is so sad how first her Mum dies when she is just a little girl and then her step mother comes in to the story. little later her dad dies as well and her step mother becomes really cruel and mean it is so sad how some people can act so nice when they are around some people but then can act like a completely different person around others i definitely recommend watching this movie because it’s worth it.

  3. This is movie is absolutely a muss-watch.
    Not only are the actors all amazing and so incredibly talented, but omg have you seen the cinderella dress! Lily James’ performance is amazing to say the least and I honestly can not think of any other actress who could have done a better job or been a better Cinderella. Honestly, she fits the character so perfectly and gives such an incredible performance that now whenever I watch her in any other movies or tv shows all I see is cinderella. Let’s of course not forget Prince Charming, omg prepare to be in love. Cinderella and Prince Charming, let me just say that the casting is perfect to say the least.
    If you loved the original animation, definitely watch this live-action movie as soon as possible.

    This movie is the live action version of Cinderella. It is a magical and enchanting movie and is beautiful to watch. Lily James is an amazing actor and makes this movie even better. It is funny, interesting and a great movie. I recommend it to everyone older than 5 years old.

    This is an all time favourite movie of mine! There are many versions, but this one has to be my favourite!
    Lily James does such an amazing job of playing Cinderella and it will forever be my favourite movie! I absolutely love her blue dress, it is stunning! My favourite part of the movie is when she goes to the ball wearing the blue dress and the when everyone is dancing.
    I would recommend this movie for people ages 8+ because people who are younger might not understand what it is about.
    If you haven’t seen this movie, you definitely should because you will love it! 🙂

    Cinderella is such a lovely movie. It was so sad when her mother and father died but she carried a lovely message with her in memory of her mum especially : “have courage and be kind”.

    I couldn’t even imagine what it would be like to be treated like what Cinderella got treated. I had mixed emotions about the ball because I didn’t want Cinderella to leave but it was for the better of her.

    I was so glad when the prince found Cinderella and took her away. I love the happy ending!

    I would rate this movie a 7/10

    Cinderella was such a lovely movie.
    It was a really intelligent and fun take on the original Disney Cartoon Classic.
    The costumes were beautiful. The detail that went into their design and creation was phenomenal especially seen in Cinderella’s blue dress.
    I also loved the casting for the movie, especially Cate Blanchett as the Evil Stepmother. She brought such a deep perspective to the motives of the character and her characteristics towards her own daughters compared to Cinderella.
    Lily James is such a lovely actress, and she brought out not only the innocence, but also the intelligence to the character. She worked so well with the on-screen prince. I also loved that Prince Charming, or Kit, had a really good storyline! It wasn’t just as the love interest to Cinderella, it was also as a complex character struggling with the idea of a dying father and the thought of being heir to the throne.
    I would recommend this to all ages and rate it an 8.5/10.

  10. I only just recently saw Cinderella and instantly fell in love with the movie. My favourite character was Cinderella because she is the main character and she is really good a portraying the different emotions the character feels especially when her father dies, I have to admit I did start to tear up after that part. My favourite part of the movie is when the price try’s to find Cinderella by getting women to try on her shoe l, I found it really funny when the mean older sister really wanted to fit their foot so much that they would brake their own foot. I would recommend this movie for people who love the classic Cinderella story. I would rate this movie a 7/10.

  11. I love this movie because of the scenes. Cinderella lost her slipper at the ball. She was running and her godmother said,”That everything would be gone at midnight.” The price said,” Your slipper dropped!” At the end, she got married to the prince. You will have to watch the movie to see what happens to the stepsisters. I like this movie because it was fun and really enjoyable. I like I am most like Cinderella because I have chores to do, too. I think that girls over 8 would like this movie. I rate this movie 9 out of 10.

  12. There are so many different versions of Cinderella, I could go on all day about each of them, but this movie of Cinderella really caught my eye. The way this movie was planned out and produced has made it my favourite Cinderella movie ever! My favourite character is the fairy godmother, she has some crack – up lines that will get you going! My favourite line is when she says ‘Well I am your hairy dog father’ 😂 😂 😂 I could not stop laughing and replaying that scene for ages! I absolutely love this movie and I will watch it forever and ever. I recommend this movie to anyone from the age of 8+.

    I rate this movie a 10/10 for sure!!!!!!

  13. I really loved watching this movie I saw this at the movies with my friends and they loved it too. It has romance,despair, kindness, magic and love. Ella (cinderella) played by Lily James is a beautiful young girl who’s mother dies at a young age and her father remarries. Then on one horrible day she gets a note saying that her father had died, so that is where it all began. I would recommend this movies for people 11 and over because it is not really like the children’s cinderella. I love this movie and so if you haven’t seen it watch it, it is fantastic. I rate this movie 9/10.

    This was a great movie.
    One reason is because it has Helena Bonham Carter in it, so it must be fantastic. She is one of my favourite actors and did a great job portraying the Fairy Godmother.
    This is (yet another) recreation of the famous children story, ‘Cinderella’. It is about a young girl, who is forced to be a slave in her own home, serving her stepmother, and two evil stepsisters.
    I like this movie because it gave Cinderella a more thorough back story. It really showed what she had to go through as a child, and the emotions that she felt.
    Apart from Walt Disney’s original animation, the creation of Cinderella’s dress is now updated with newer technology, making it a truly magical experience for the whole family.
    It doesn’t have heaps of humour, but it is still very enjoyable.
    This is a great movie and I would recommend it to all ages. 9/10

    I really enjoyed watching this movie, full of romance, charity, kindness and a little bit of magic. The story line is sad beautiful and shows how much respect and kindness Ella (cinderella) has. As always her magical prince comes running after her but I really feel that there is more ‘romance’ and you really feel like you can step into her shoes. it really leaves you with a beautiful finish. I highly recommend this as a fun family movie in a Friday night! Please take the time to watch this you won’t be disappointed. I rate it a 9/10 and for all ages!

  16. I recommend the movie ‘Cinderella’ directed by Kenneth Branagh. I loved this movie as it was a modern look on an old classic tale. My favourite part of the book is when Ella meets her fairy godmother because she is so sad and lonely and feels the world is against her and then she gets a glimmer of hope. My favourite character is Ella because although she is treated wrongly and many bad things have happened to her, she seems to conquer all odds and goes after what she wants and doesn’t worry about what everyone else thinks. My least favourite part in this movie is when Ella and her step-family receive word that something tragic has happened to her father. I do not like this part because her father was the only person Ella had left and now that he was gone, she had nobody in the world looking after her. I would recommend this book to others because it is a warm-hearted fun movie about a girl and a boy who fall in love and defy all odds to be together. Everyone would like this movie as it is for all age groups and covers nearly all genres of film.

  17. Cinderella is a fantastic movie to watch with the family it has a bit of romance, adventure and humour something for everyone to enjoy. My favourite part of this movie is when the fairy godmother changes all the animals and pumpkin into a carriage and chauffeurs. My least favourite part of this movie was when the step-mother was rude to Cinderella and treated her as if she was the maid and not part of the family it was just horrible. My favourite character in this movie is Ella because she’s such a kind, caring person who always shows compassion and courage. I would recommend this movie to anyone as it is a classic and everyone would enjoy it!

  18. My friends and I went to see this at the movies and wow, it was amazing. Normally when you see that there is a new remake of a fairy tale such as Cinderella you think, its going to be like all the rest theres a girl who has two stepsister no father and a step mother and theres a ball that she can’t go to because she has nothing to wear, then her fairy god mother comes and rescues her, but when the clock strikes 12 she has to leave, leaving her glass slipper behind and her prince. Well yes all of this happens but there are more different twist added into this Cinderella story. My favourite part of the book was when Cinderella’s father was going away for worked and wanted to know if she wanted anything there. Her reply was “The first branch that brushes your shoulder” this response is very heart warming and happy. But sadly the branch returns to her alone. My favourite character was Cinderella’s father he is so kind and a very good father to Cinderella. My least favourite part was when one of Cinderella’s step sisters plays a song on the piano and sings. Oh it was just horrible, it was a relief to hear her step-mother tell her to shut up.I loved this movie, I would recommend it to anyone who loves fairy tales like Cinderella. I would rate this movie a 10/10.

  19. I LOVE this movie. The message in this movie is “have courage be kind” quote by Ella’s mother, and the actor Lilly James who plays Ella (cinderella) really sends out this message. I can not fault this movie one bit and I love it to bits I wish that their was a sequel to this movie. After watching Kate Blanchett playing the role of the stepmother I think of her in a different way. My favourite character would have to be Ella she is such a nice person and is kind and has courage still after everything that has happened to her. My favourite scene would be where Ella meets her crazy fairy Godmother and they transform the pumpkin into the carriage which looks absolutely gorgeous. Also the bit when her dress is being transformed I really like that too. I wouldn’t change anything in this movie and I would recommend it to all ages. If you are into fairy tales and romance this is your movie.

  20. This version of the cinderella I personally think is really good and is the best cinderella even though I do love all the other cinderella’s. I went to go see this movie with some of my friends I was so excited about watching it because I knew that it was a bit different to the other ones even though the story outline is the same. I loved Cinderella’s blue dress that she worn on the day of the ball. The only thing that I didn’t really like was the StepMother and breaking Cinderella’s glass shoe. But I rate this movie 10/10

    I loved Cinderella!!!
    It is the original story of Cinderella, but with a few different tweaks. It is really magical and imaginative that the whole family will enjoy. Even if you wouldn’t say Cinderella was your favourite fairy tale, you need to watch this movie! I would recommend this movie to kids 6+ just because it’s a bit sad at the start, but I still recommend it to everyone.
    I rate this movie a 10/10

  25. I love the movie Cinderella the first day it came out I really wanted to go and see it. My favourite part in this movie has to be when the lizards, goose and mice were turned into animals for the pumpkin carriage.

Also my favourite character would have to be cinderella because she looks sooooo pretty in that blue dress when you goes to the ball. I would rate this movie a 10/10!!!!!!!!

    I saw ‘Cinderella’ in the cinemas with my friends but I think it is a family film, as it is friendly and fun. It is more like a modern version of Cinderella with nicknames and fun words included. It really brings out the fantasy side of nursery stories we were tad as young children. The end was sweet but I could have bought of a better way to end it. I would rate this movie 8.5/10 because it is a great film but has room for improvement.

  27. Cinderella is a fantastic movie for the whole family to enjoy! Based on the cartoon fairytale, Cinderella, they have made a more modern and more realistic version. I absolutely love the costumes and acting. During the movie, there is romance, comedy and a few unrealistic scenes. If you haven’t already seen this movie, then you better! Go see it with your family and friends! enjoy!!!

  28. I went and saw this movie with my friend during the holidays and i thought it was really cute and funny, it includes a little bit of sadness in some points of the film but mostly it is a sweet and kind film. This story is based on the cartoon fairy tale “Cinderella” but this story is a movie with real people instead and i think this will also give you something to go away with like a fable this will surly teach you something about life. I really recommend this.

  29. I loved this movie, the story didn’t surprise me through, unlike Mirror Mirror. It was okay though, I liked a live action Disney princess movie that keeps it’s classic feel. Lily James as Cinderella was a perfect fit, and the movie was well made. The glass slipper shocked me too, I heard that it was a SGI slipper, but it was made so well. Loved the movie.

    “Cinderella” a fabulous well known fairy tale, such a touching movie. It has romance and comedy as well as sadness, making this movie perfect for me.

  32. I saw this movie in the holidays and thought it was very good with keeping all the same things that happened in the original. For example, 2 ugly step sisters, pumpkin carriage, 12am bell. I also liked how they inserted some new things like how the godmother came and how she made her own dress. My favourite part of the movie is when she first meets the Prince in the wood because I thought it was a really cute way for them to meet. I rate this movie a 9/10 for it’s engaging scenes etc. 🙂

    This Cinderella movie is such a touching tale. It has it’s own originalities, but still runs the same classic story line. The characters are portrayed so well, and the settings are incredible, as well as the language used. It consists of romance, comedy, tragedy and classic tales. Cinderella was one of my favourite disney movies, and now after watching this new version it is definitely my FAVOURITE one now. I would rate this an 8/10 and recommend it to all ages.

  36. I recommend the movie ‘Cinderella’. It was such a good movie!! I know the story of Cinderella just like most other people, but it still captured my attention for the whole movie. My favourite part of the movie was when the Prince and his men were outside Ella’s house and heard her singing. I didn’t like the lizard men as they seemed a tad creepy and their teeth were very strange. If I could change anything, I would change the old lady who turns into her fairy godmother. I disliked how she seemed like a homeless person before she became the fairy godmother. I would recommend this movie to other people and these people would be of any age. When I went to see the movie, there was me, my 9 year old sister, someone middle aged, an 8 year old and some older people, and everyone enjoyed the movie.
