A Mermaid’s Tale – From a Teen’s Perspective! My daughters recently had the opportunity to watch this movie together. My oldest wrote the review for the movie.
Here is the review from a teen’s perspective!
A Mermaid’s Tale was surprisingly a decent movie for me. I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy watching it, but you can’t judge a movie before you watch it. I really like how all of the conflict was put together in the end. Although I did overall enjoy the movie, there were a couple of scenes I wasn’t so sure about. *spoilers* Near the end when the main character was shown to have magic, the movie never described what she could do other than healing. It just left the viewer to their own suspicions without going into detail. *end of spoilers* Also, this may just be my opinion but I feel like the rebel mermaid’s acting in some scenes were not very believable. All in all, the movie was pretty good and definitely captivated me to keep watching.
