I have gotta say I have never seen such good acting from children. Liam Aiken, Emily Browning and the twins Kara and Shelby Hoffman are definatly names to watch! The young stars of this film really know how to bring the fantasy, horror, laughter and suspense to life. The actors along side them are also amazing. Meryl Streep, Billy Connley and of course, Jim Carrey (who does an ace storybook villan) all bring something new and exciting to the film. The story of the unfortunate Baudelaire children is brought to life in really clever and slightly gothic detail. anyone of any age should watch this film, its really god. And the Narrator, Mr Lemony Snicket (Jude Law) gives the film just the right amount of suspense and thrills. There are rumers of a sequel, so here's hoping!
