Paddington was a key part of my childhood and 'woe betide anyone who screwed it up', I thought. Thankfully those fears soon melted away within a few minutes of one of the best films of 2014. Getting a movie like this from script to screen is no easy matter, and King, Heyman, the cast and crew have done a magnificent job.
