when you get tim and johnny together, something magnificent comes out... i mean even this was a masterpeice! Tim Burton had done directing tht was just insanly great, ITHINK .... acting was good, plot was fine,, an awsome childrens movie!! even great fo9r adults... there ARE many differences between this one and the original. But great movie.... OVERALL RATING- 8.9/10

FOR SOME REASON WHEN WATCHING THIS MOVIE JONNY SEEMED MORE HIMSELF THAN IN ANY INTERVIEW I HAVE EVER SEEN HIM. IT MAKES YOU WONDER IF HE TRULY EVEN ACTED WHEN HE "PLAYED" THIS ROLE.

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

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.

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

Washington Post
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
