Synopsis: When Noah (Chris O’Neil) and Emma Wilder (Rhiannon Leigh Wryn) discover a special box on the beach, they open it and unlock an exciting adventure beyond imagination. Inside they find Mimzy, a magical stuffed rabbit along with other mystical toys, which give the children exceptional powers of their own. Able to move objects with their minds and solve complex equations, these new wonder kids begin to attract the attention of their parents, teachers and even the FBI. Surrounding the phenomenon of Mimzy is an awesome secret-one that holds the key to saving the future of all mankind.

The Last Mimzy is a great movie for children. Full of magic and fantasy, kids will be drawn to the movie instantly. The movie also pulls mathematics and science together very well.

What I love the most about this film is how the purity and innocence of children is shown. Children are always able to see things more clearly and believe in the impossible more easily. The children can see the magic in the toys where none of the adults can.

The CGI effects are minimal but just enough. Children younger than ten wouldn’t be too interested in seeing this movie as it’s more a physiological film than action packed. The movie did feel a bit dragged out at some points but for the most part this is a movie that will open children’s minds to science and helping to take care of their planet.

Very cute movie.
