Product Description

CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY MOVIE

Customer Reviews

Top Customer Reviews

Format: DVD
"Charlie & The Chocolate Factory" has an ominous opening, a sort of Chocolate Citizen Kane analogy of the relentless success of Wonka's chocolate empire, the creation of a multinational with tentacles that reach round the globe and a factory in which the workers labour away like the oppressed employees in "Modern Times". The chocolate factory dominates the town like a dark satanic mill. Chocolate hasn't been this dark since Monty Python's crunchy frogs. And you appreciate that this may be a film which children will enjoy, but there's an adult subtext.
In a ramshackle hovel, Charlie Bucket and his family eke out an existence on cabbage soup, the bane of British school meals. The reclusive Wonka has withdrawn from the world for fifteen years but now returns with five golden tickets on offer, each ticket a passport to chocolate paradise. While kids around the world compete, connive, and manipulate their parents to ensure they secure one of the golden tickets, Charlie has to rely on luck.
It's a fascinating film, moving from the bleak grey and brown tones of Charlie's world to the wonderland which is Wonka's. The chocolate factory is garish, a full palette of bright colours, its confectionary an extraordinary adventure in the miraculous. It is a wonderland which will enrapture children. But there are decidedly dark undercurrents. Roald Dahl's 1964 novel has a sadistic quality to it, and director Tim Burton doesn't miss this. Children are no angels, and bad children deserve their comeuppance.
Johnny Depp plays the master of ceremonies, an unnaturally pale, reclusive man who has turned a factory into a circus, a playground for a bunch of cloned dwarves. You wonder who he could possibly have modelled the character on?

I'm old enough to remember watching the original adaptation 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory' with Gene Wilder, as a wide eyed child, and so I wasn't expecting much from this film as I knew what to expect. However, I was pleasantly surprised with this film. It's the same story of Charlie and his golden ticket but told in a completely different way. Everything is 're-imagined' (a term familiar to Tim Burton) and Willy Wonka is not the willing showman of old, but instead an eccentric character with a squeaky voice, bobbed hair and a backstory of a stern dentist father.

There are plenty of jokes and funny moments to make you laugh and Johnny Depp is wonderful as Wonka. He's creepy yet innocent and totally watchable. The Oompa Loompas made me laugh and weren't as creepy or terrible as I'd been led to believe.

A nice movie and any child would enjoy it with the same wide eyed wonder that I'd enjoyed with the earlier film.

After growing up with the Gene Wilder version of this film (which I couldn’t stand at all), I was really happy when this version was released with Johnny Depp as Willy Wonker. It's the opposite end of the spectrum (the GOOD end) for the male lead as far as I'm concerned.

Johnny Depp's crazy twist to the role, playing it with a high pitched voice makes his character all the more endearing. When "Mrs. Beauregarde" starts flirting with "Willy Wonker", it's very funny but then given the chance, who wouldn't flirt with such a cutie!

Maybe because I'm in my 30s, I can't see far past Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka. It seemed more of a revelation - Wilder was opening our eyes to possibilities, to imagination - taking us into a wonderful world...where immoral uncouth behaviour is treated with disdain, and wholesome living is rewarded

The Burton version is highly polished, and is more of a spectacle although to me seems a little like a vehicle for jonny depp - only because he is the films stand-out feature. Hilarious, dramatic and camp.

My son (5 years old) prefers this version to the original. I still laugh out loud every time depp walks into the elevator door. It is touching in parts and probably closer to the essence of Roald Dahl's book.

The two films are different enough to warrant having both in your collection. If I had to choose which one to get, I guess I would go for the Burton/Depp version. The Gene Wilder thing - that's just nostalgia

Sadly I had forgotten how bad this film was. Right from the start with the terrible cgi credits.

I'm not saying the film is terrible, but compared with the original film it does not even come close to the magic of Roald Dahl. Firstly where are the great songs for the kids? All you get are terrible musicicle numbers from the umpa lumpas, which feel like they took an hour each to compose.

Then of course you have the single umpa lumpa playing all the parts, cheaped out?? Sorry but this film just has no magic at all. What needs to happen is the original film needs to be remastered, recoloured with new sound.

Having sat in the cinema hours on end this year to try to release the smallest of chuckles, I was delighted when the new charlie and the chocolate factory was released, a film i'd been anticipating for a long time.
The songs aren't the same but they are incredibly funny, i was happily surprised.In fact I watched it twice.
The new format of the film is hilarious and Johnny Depp was exactly what it needed to re-release this old time classic.
My favourite character is the oompah loompa, played this time by one man, although it seems like many. His dancing is fantastic.
I definately recomend this film for anyone of any age!Its worth its price, a film you can watch again and again and still find amusing. fantastic.
