    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.

    What has happened to Tim Burton? This really was not very good at all; the characters were paper thin and the plot wasn't much better. There were some funny moments that made me laugh and the performances from Eva Green and Johnny Depp were good, but the usually impressive Chloe Moretz was bordering on terrible here. The whole thing just felt very lacklustre. 6 years 8 months ago
