5.0 out of 5 stars I have seen the headless horseman!And he was.......headless!, 8 Dec 2003
This review is from: Sleepy Hollow [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
WOW!!!
This a good film! It's very dark and gloomy,(typical Tim Burton), but well worth the time.
It stars my fave, scrummy actor, Johnny Depp and once again he shows us his wonderful talents.
Depp is Ichabod Crane, the Police Inspector renowned for his new age approach to solving crimes. Depp plays this with a brilliant touch of comedy. This film is not intended to be a serious story. So if that's what you are looking for, look elsewhere.
What it is,is a wonderfully dark tale of the headless horseman with a perfect mix of humour.
The gadgets and mannerisms that Depp uses in this film are brilliant. He brings to life a loveable character in Ichabod, who although has a desire to solve these headless killings, is absolutely terrified!!! He has some classic one liners too..."You should never move the body!" "Why?" "Because you shouldn't!" It's obvious he hasn't a clue why!
My favourite part of the film though has to be after Ichabod actually sees the demonic horseman decapitate someone. He takes to his bed and is clearly terrified to the point of fainting! Something that he does throughout the film. It's delicious!!!
This film is not a horror, more like a dark fairy tale. Although you see people getting their heads chopped off, it's not too gruesome. The creepiest thing about it is the wonderful atmosphere that Tim Burton has managed to create.
If you are a Johnny Depp fan, you will not be disappointed,(if that's at all possible!)But even if you aren't, there is a wonderful supporting cast including some cameos by truly fantastic actors.
Buy this and sit down with a mind to enjoy a funny, dark, easy going movie.
