5.0 out of 5 stars One for Tim Burton Fans, 8 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Charlie & The Chocolate Factory (2 Disc Edition) [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
Based on a Roald Dahl novel, however loosely, the story is still there. I think that if you watch the film as something separate to the book then this film would be vastly enjoyable. I think that it appeals to all ages, children love the bright colours and adults can appreciate the subtlety of Johnny Depp's performance.
Depp and Burton always have the ability to some together and create something wonderful, mesmerising and beautiful and this film is no different.
Throughout the film it is clear that Willy Wonka has some elements of Michael Jackson incorporated into his character, however it is also clear that these references are very much tongue in cheek and not designed to cause offence. I feel that Wonka's character has been interpreted in a very original way, and though it may not be true to the book it is certainly and enjoyable performance to watch.
For Burton fans there are the very Burton-esq qualities that we have come to expect with the massive contrast between the lighter and the darker moments of the film.
I give it 5 stars as a fan of both Johnny Depp and Tim Burton, and I encourage anyone to watch it.
