The film received mixed reviews from critics. While some praised the performances of the cast and the special effects, others felt that this remake couldn’t surpass the original 1990 TV film adaptation. Additionally, some critics noted that changes made to the story’s ending might not align with the source material and lacked consistency.
In summary, “The Witches” 2020 offers a fresh perspective on Roald Dahl’s classic tale, but it didn’t please everyone with its approach. Overall, the highlight of the movie lies in the performances of the cast and the integration of special effects into the mystical narrative.
