It was just ok. The doll animation was good, and it was interesting at points, but it soon grew a bit tiresome. I found it hard to empathize with the main character, and it just felt like the story didn't go anywhere.

There’s a DeLorean in this movie for no reason other than it being a Robert Zemeckis film and he wants to remind us, “hey I may be directing crappy movies now BUT I gave you all Back to the Future!”

Welcome to Marwen is based on the life and artwork of Mark Hogancamp, a hate-crime survivor who turned to art as a form of therapy. In 2000, to help him cope with the fallout of an assault that saddled him with crippling psychological trauma, he created a fictional, 1:6 scale World War II town christened Marwencol, populated with dolls inspired by his real-life friends, neighbors, and even the men who attacked him. (from artnet news) Brilliantly done!

I really wanted to like this movie. The doll animation was amazing and fun to watch, but the movie isn't so much about the real life actors, but about the story of the dolls.

Didn’t know anything about this movie, and at first were intrigued with the way it was done, but found it wore thin and lost interest.

Robert Zemeckis' method of animating actors is the perfect way to tell this story. It helps us see what Mark Hogancamp is thinking and feeling, and reveals the tragedy that he went through. Sweet and heartfelt.

Steve Carell shows us what a great actor he is and that he can do MUCH more than comedy. The character is very sad but understandable after having been nearly killed by a bunch of homophobic thugs. The movie was quite disturbing but, again understandable and, I believe, the point of the theme. Steve C. was really the only good actor in it but he carried it off beautifully.

Disappointing to the point that I couldn't finish watching. I wanted to find something redeemable about the film but found only the idea was good, execution however is fatally flawed.

Not at all what we were expecting. This is about a guy's bizarre coping mechanism of dolls and sets. Not a family film. It felt like we were watching an adult male play with barbies for his personal fetishes. :0
