The Craft: Legacy reviews
Here's a roundup of The Craft: Legacy reviews.
The New York Times (opens in new tab): "... a disappointing distillation of the original that’s mostly devoid of personality"
Entertainment Weekly (opens in new tab): "... for all its good intentions, the glossy production comes off like a feature-length episode of a network teen drama; nary a frame hints at the arresting energy of the edgy sleepover staple."
IGN (opens in new tab): "Lister-Jones recaptures the magic of the original by welcoming the audience into a cool coven with warmth and radiant leads. It's a pleasure to tag along with this dynamic squad, whether they're dabbling in telekinesis, flirting with a crush, or taking on the forces of evil and misogyny. "
CinemaBlend (opens in new tab): "The witches are refreshingly diverse young talents, with a cast made up of relative newcomers. And these four women have a palpable chemistry that helps buoy the movie."
IndieWire (opens in new tab): "While a messy third act hampers its power, it arrives at a final twist to bring things full circle, setting the course for what could very well be a brand new chapter in a franchise overdue for new life."
