Critic Reviews for The Secret Garden

All Critics (61) | Top Critics (12)

The latest adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's 1911 novel is not necessarily a bad film, just an unnecessary one.

August 8, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Makes puzzling choices in harvesting the material, mostly providing an incentive to go back and watch the last one again.

Top Critic

A slightly monotonous, but still wondrous reading of the source.

August 7, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

I have never watched an adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's novel and repeatedly thought, "Is someone going to get murdered?!" Until now.

August 6, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

In a year defined by surprise, the predictability of "The Secret Garden" - a new film adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's beloved 1911 novel - proves more charming than tedious.

August 6, 2020 | Full Review…

This adaptation leans heavily on clichés the story doesn't need.
