Into the Woods is an exciting adventure movie that combines great music, interesting characters, and strong directing from Rob Marshall. The great cast and fun story make for a very entertaining film with strong character arcs and a great mix of comedy, adventure, and drama. Overall, Into the Woods is a very strong fantasy film that successfully brings classic characters to life with well-directed musical numbers and fantastic performances. The movie musical may not always work as an adaptation, but Into the Woods is an example of how to successfully translate a play into the format of the big screen. Grade: +B
