The latest Disney animated classic to receive a live-action retelling is Dumbo, the tale of an infant elephant born with enormous ears that give him the ability to fly. However, fans of the 1941 original should be forewarned. This take is very different from the original, meaning audiences may not be getting what they expect when the curtain rises. It has its fair share of issues, but there’s enough good stuff in here to earn it a modest recommendation.

It all begins when ex-circus performer and WWI veteran Holt Ferrier (Colin Farrell) returns home to his troupe after years in service. Besides having lost a limb in battle...
