    Gorgeous filmmaking that brims over with funhouse thrills and ravishing romance. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A film with no theatrical core and no integrity in the writing, acting or storytelling. show more

    This is a very bloody fantasy (reds do eke their way into the black-and-blues), but it's hard to think of another film with as many severed heads whose overall tone is so sweet. show more

    Michael Atkinson Mr. Showbiz

    Burton's films are endearing and impassioned despite the fact that they generally fail to tell a whole story, create a single rounded character, or inspire even mild laughs or chills. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    Lots of brilliant filmmaking and high-spirited acting, at least until the story turns repetitious and formulaic in the last 30 minutes. show more

    As a horror movie, even one inspired by the kitschy Hammer horror films of the 1950s, it's disappointing. show more

    Johnny Depp was great in this movie. There was a lot of repeated things but the rest was great. It followed the legend very clearly and is a definite horror movie.
