I liked this one much better than the NYT did, I think because I was not comparing it to the books nor was I worrying overmuch about the politics.
It has fireworks, magic, charm, a nod or two to Thomas Edison, what I thought was quite lovely animation and one really bad pun.
Our five-year-old found it scary at a couple of points, but was glad to have seen it overall.
Recommended as a movie for kids.
