Wednesday movie review

Stage thief

Playing the role of Wednesday is not easy, in each episode you have to play sly and scary roles, always moody and this is definitely very tiring compared to playing normal characters. But Jenna Ortega can do it well and deserves praise.

Jenna’s performance on Wednesday was very good, so we can entertain ourselves with all the silly stories about her without having to tire of seeing the girl in nasty mode all the time. Wednesday’s horror doesn’t make us hesitate to watch this movie, it’s even addictive!

There are several successful plots that keep audiences focused on Wednesday’s warnings about the power of publicity that could put this eccentric girl in danger. This made the audience a little hesitant to believe what Wednesday saw in their vision, because many people missed out.

The scriptwriter tries to make us a little uncomfortable with Wednesday’s behavior, who is rushing to conclude who the monster is and his master. Starting with Xavier, who was unjustly arrested, the charges against Dr. Kinbott as the lord of hyde. But in the end we are satisfied, Wednesday can turn the tide for good.

If you’ve noticed, from the very first Wednesday in Nevermore Academy, the most watched class was Miss Thornhill’s botany class. Although there are certainly a lot of classrooms that can be shown to make Nevermore Academy more like a school than just a setting.

This makes the audience think a little bit about where Wednesday studied because all day they just explore monster cases, write novels, visit coffee shops, go to psychiatrists, etc. again. Luckily, it’s helped by the interesting storyline, so we don’t think about it too much.

This fourth film has a rather hanging ending; as a clue that the second season of the series will be aired. The reason is, at the end of the film there is a scene where Wednesday is finishing his novel script but it ends with a question mark, which means a big question is there any other new cases in Nevermore?
