I loved this film. Maybe it's my age ... I thought it was sweet and nostalgic and very funny! Reminds you of the high of your first love, the pain of being a misfit when you were young, and the days when everyone joined the scouts because there was little else to do. The kids are wonderful actors, and I am enjoying Bill Murray more and more in movies. The usual great acting by McDormand, Swinton, Norton. Motivated me to go back and find the rest of Wes Anderson's films.

I did not enjoy Moonrise Kingdom.  Several other people at the same showing I attended felt the same way.  I don't care what type of films Wes Anderson puts out there.  Some of us like to be entertained.  We were not entertained by Moonrise Kingdom.

I guess we all are different, but I did not enjoy Moonrise Kingdom.  Several other people at the same showing did not enjoy it either.  They thought they had wasted their money.

I saw Moonrise Kingdom and thought it was lousy.

What a waste of time. Would have been better if filmed by Tim Burton as an animated film. Just plain stupid.

4. "Moonrise Kingdom"

Wes Anderson built a career exploring the childhood neuroses that keep adult characters in an arrested state of adolescence. In "Moonrise Kingdom," he builds a film around the troubled kids themselves: a pair of preteen misfits who run away together in a romantic adventure that could have come from one of her beloved juvenile fantasy novels. There's a great adult cast -- Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel, Tilda Swinton, and especially Bruce Willis as a lonely island lawman who gets a second chance -- but the film belongs to these restless kids. So many Anderson films are constructed like Joseph Cornell boxes, self-contained little worlds painstakingly constructed of delightful, defining details and delicious flourishes. These kids break out of their boxes and the drag the rest of the film with them into the world outside, even if it's just a tiny New England island. A bigger box, yes, but the possibilities .... It's funny, playful, full of nostalgic blasts and period textures, and most of all loving: accepting of the headstrong kids determined to find their place in the world, forgiving of the oblivious adults around them, affectionate in its storybook imagery. Anderson plays with the conventions of puppy love, runaway adventure and adolescent rebellion with a knowing sensibility, but he loves his characters unconditionally, and his sincerity makes the film blossom. -- Sean Axmaker
