The satirical edge has been dulled in a film that is dominated, and ultimately swamped, by its star's mannered, pixilated performance. Full Review

Depp deserves kudos for fashioning an original and outlandish if occasionally menacing character. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
I call it wondrous because, in spite of lapses and imperfections, a few of them serious, Mr. Burton's movie succeeds in doing what far too few films aimed primarily at children even know how to attempt anymore, which is to feed - even to glut - the youthful appetite for aesthetic surprise.

David Edelstein
This is a dazzling movie, yet some people (not kids, but maybe their parents) will be put off by its Grand Guignol ghoulishness. Full Review

It's doubtful that Depp's off-kilter interpretation will have any discernible effect on the movie's success. But it remains the movie's most disappointing aspect. Full Review
