    It felt rushed, cramped and forced... like trying to squeeze 20 hours worth of material into 2 hours of film.

    Could Burton, Depp and Elfman ever create anything short of magical? No, but it could have been so much more. Take Jonny Lee Miller's role as an example of meaningless filler, he could have been removed from the script entirely. What about Christopher Lee? Talk about wasted potential. The hippies? The town folk? The doctor?
    Too many threads going nowhere, being essentially meaningless and merely serving as nails when the points are being hammered into our minds, as if we couldn't understand a more subtle approach.

    I do not consider this a family movie, I wish it had been a much darker story without the overly clumsy 'man-out-of-time' attempts at humor.

    However! I liked it a lot, despite it's many flaws. Visually gorgeous! Sound, music, visuals, effects, make up, costumes, the entire sets - top notch all round.

    I'd agree with the consensus that it is just okay. The acting was all good and it had moments of good humor. But the plot itself and the pacing all just felt off. 8 years 1 month ago
