4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, loyal to the original book Nov. 12 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was one of my favorite books as a child, so when I heard Hollywood was making a new movie based on the book, I jumped at the chance to see it. Having seen the first Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which Gene Wilder starred in, I was a little skeptical about Johnny Depp stepping into his shoes in the new version. However, to my surprise the new version is closer to the original storyline of Roald Dahl's book. My only complaint was the look of Willy Wonka. He looked a little too eccentric for my taste, especially his flashback scenes to when he was a child. The actor who played Grandpa Joe was wonderful, but I wished Charlie had a little more personality. He was a bit dry compared to the other children who met their demises in the factory. I loved the sets with all the candy and chocolate, very creative, just as I imagined from the book. One part which I was disappointed in was the Oompa Loompas. They were only played by one character, not very original. It was a little boring to see the same person again and again. Overall this movie is great for anyone who loved the book and the original movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a pleasant surprise ! Nov. 10 2005
Format:DVD
If you ever saw the original and liked it ....you will love
this version. Ever finished a movie with a smile....this is one
of them. Great sets, great casting of actors/actresses, and the
hardest working actor in this movie would be the oompa /loompas
character, you will believe me once you see the extra stuff they
have on the dvd and how hard he worked at his part.
So its a great entertaining feast for your imagination.
Either you will love it....or you will hate it.
I was also surprise to see the great Christopher Lee with a
Role....excellent...Enjoy

I must agree Johnny Depp did look a little too weird for his weird character. However, I got used to him and his voice suited the part. He was perfectly perfect and nobody could have done it better! I full-heartedly say that the new one is immeasurably better than the original. And I did not say this before watching the first one. It was really not as entertaining and impressive as I expected. Tim Burton is a creative genius and his version of the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory kept me alert and my attention did not stray for a second.

A wonderful movie. If you're a Johnny Depp fan, you'll love it for sure. Johnny Depp never lets you down!! XD

A wonderful expressionist realization of a story that, at bottom, is about the viciousness and wonder to which children are equally susceptible, and the culpability of parents in the failings of their children -- i.e. for the parents' failure to cultivate in their children a sense of wonder and a healthy respect for the unknown. (That is why I think Burton's addition of the backstory regarding Wonka and his candy-hating dentist father is very much in the spirit of the original.) The Dickensian world of Charlie is lovingly recreated by Burton, replete with a leaning shack and twisted doors that suggest the German expressionist techniques evident in the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. The Oompah Loompahs are perfect, and Tim Burton admirably avoids the racism implicit in the original story by making the Oompah Loompahs (all but a few, as far as I can tell, played by the same suave actor) without resorting to the campiness of the prior movie version, by making them much more clever than the rest of the characters in the story. Their musical numbers had me and my children laughing out loud, especially where in the song for Mike Teavee they become a perfect parody of 70's glam rock (nearly besting even Spinal Tap in this brief number). Tim Burton has his hits and misses, but this is definitely a big hit!

4.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Depp was an excellent casting for Wonka Nov. 22 2007
Format:DVD
Many consider Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to be Tim Burton's best film in years, and perhaps it is. But it also falls a bit short when compared with the original. The story is very similar to the original, as after decades of never allowing anyone near his factory, Wonka decides to let a handful of kids inside, by lottery: five bars of his chocolate will have a priceless golden ticket inside. Of course, they are mostly horrible brats: a fat kid, a spoiled brat, a self-centered gymnast, a wanna be, and little Charlie Bucket, who manages to melt Wonka's heart and unlocks the secret of his relationship with fierce Wonka Sr, a Sith Lord. Wait, wrong movie. Same actor, however. This rendition of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is somewhat darker than the original. It also goes into greater detail about the events that shaped Wonka's life. As wll as, more background of the strange little people known as Umpa-Lumpas--from Lumpa Land. It has the same pitfalls that befell the children in the original with only a few slight differences. Tagged with one-liners, such as; "Don't touch that squirrel's nuts,('nuts' in the literal sense)Burton's Wonka is as similar to the original as it is different. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, manages to accomplish a rare feat--it seperates itself from the original, and stands on its own feet. It is overall, a great film--but it doesn't have quite the same charm as the original.

A visual treat yes, but little more. Definitely a film which will be enjoyed by children (5-8), but not really intended? for an adult audience. Read more
