Pinocchio review – Zemeckis and Hanks reunite for a well-made yet cold remake

Disney’s surprisingly realistic beat through the inventory has come about in, best case scenario, dedicated variations that battle to catch the sorcery of activity (The Lion King, Aladdin) and even from a pessimistic standpoint, spontaneous money snatches venturing profound into the uncanny valley (Dumbo, Lady and the Tramp).
