I didn't laugh out loud, I didn't scream in horror, yet I was still entertained. Mainly because of the magical fantasy world portrayed by Tim Burton. He did it in Beetlejuice, he did it in Batman and now he's done it in Sleepy Hollow. He's created a setting that none of us have encountered before. Originality is the key to this film's success. Add onto that inspiring performances by Depp and Ricci and a number of solid displays from experienced British actors and you have a very sound film indeed. Unfortunately, although I was instantly taken in by Buton's earie world, I wasn't impressed with the plot. It became tedious and repetetive at times and there were sudden inappropriate bouts of comedy from the headless horseman that ended up not being very funny at all. After the two hours I ended up not caring who was behind it all and just waited for the end credits. Even so, the incredible sophistication of the world that Burton creates and the believable performaces is enough to merit an average mark, it's just a shame that the film couldn't decide whether it wanted to be funny or scary.
