Product Description

Once upon a time in a castle high on a hill lived an inventor whose greatest creation was named Edward. Although Edward had an irresistible charm, he wasn't quite perfect. The inventor's sudden death left him unfinished, with sharp shears of metal for hands. Edward lived alone in the darkness until one day a kind Avon lady took him home to live with her family. And so began Edward's fantastical adventures in a pastel paradise known as Suburbia.

Tim Burton is a master at bringing gothic fairy tales to life. Every film he has ever done, be it a full-blown blockbuster like Batman or a Christmas story with a twist like Nightmare Before Christmas, has his own unique dark edge, and when you watch a Burton film you can't fail to recognise it immediately. Edward Scissorhands is no exception to this rule. It is a wonderfully dark gothic tale about a man with scissors for hands. Edward is no ordinary individual; he is a great artist and can shape a wonderful topiary from any garden variety hedge. Despite this, having scissors for hands causes him a few problems. He cannot touch another human being or himself without causing pain; as a result, he is doomed to be an outcast. Edward Scissorhands shows us Burton at his best. It also gives us an early glimpse of the type of movie star Johnny Depp was to become. Hot off Twenty-One Jump Street, Depp was expected to become a movie star, equalling the status of a Brad Pitt or a Tom Cruise. Instead, he chose a harder path, going for roles that were not the leads in the latest summer blockbusters but quirky roles that strayed from the path a bit. Nearly twenty years on, his choices have paid off; he is now a commercial and critical success and a sure thing to get an Oscar before Mr Pitt or Mr Cruise.

An Inventor living in a castle creates a young man named Edward out of a cookie cutting machine. The Inventor unexpectedly dies one day, leaving Edward alone and stuck with scissors for hands, before giving him regular human ones. An Avon saleswoman Peg ventures into the castle when looking for a customer and meets Edward hiding in the attic. She decides to take him in to live with her family of four in a suburban neighbourhood with Edward trying to adapt to this new environment and interacting with the people around him. Edward makes good use of his scisssor-hands by giving haircuts to people, opening up cans, slicing meat and vegetables and cutting hedges into the shapes of people and animals. Even unlocking doors when there is no key handy. He falls in love with Peg's daughter Kim and she eventually develops the same mutual feelings as well. Will the heroine dump her boyfriend Jim and go for Edward instead? You'll just have to watch the film and find out!

I felt actors Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder did an excellent job in their roles as the central characters of Edward and Kim.

This feature film is just filled with a lot of emotionally charged and funny moments to it. I personally found Edward Scissorhands a very different and unique movie from what I usually watch! I bought this DVD during the holidays and loved it!

Tim Burton could never be accused of pandering to Hollywood studios by producing bland, mainstream, blockbuster films. He is known for his quirky, weird and individual style of film making. Edward Scissorhands is a typical Burton film in its originality and is probably one of the best he has made to date.
The story centres on Edward, an isolated, shy and socially naive young man who was created by a scientist (Vincent Price). Unfortunately his maker dies before he has completed him and so Edward is left with scissors for hands. For years he lives alone in an old house on top of a hill. Edward's isolation is interrupted by the local Avon lady (Dianne Weiss) who decides he needs to be taken under her wing and promptly moves him into her home and attempts to integrate him into the local community.
Initially all goes well as his 'novelty' appeals to the locals who flock round to have their hair cut or hedges made into fantastic shapes by the wonderfully artistic Edward. As the film progresses however, things turn ugly as the locals turn against this all too different young man. Burton takes a magnificent swipe at middle class suburban America in his portrayal of the neighbourhood (identical houses, cars etc.) where everyone acts the same in an effort to belong and anything new or different is rejected.
Edward is brilliantly portrayed by Johnny Depp who demonstrates a tremendous ability to show his thoughts and emotions without speaking. His confusion and hurt at what is happening around him are so palpable and his doomed love for the daughter of the house (Winona Ryder) is heartbreaking.
This film is a magical fairytale for adults and will make you laugh and cry in equal amounts. Highly recommended.

i adore edward scissor hands. i think that it is a wonderful story that was done very well. i find that all of tim burton's movies have this special quality to them that make them fascinating to watch. this story is about this android like figure, edward scissorhands, who comes to live with this family in a cookie cutter neighbourhood that looks kind of like something out of the 50's, with a weird spin on it. at first everyone likes him because of his 'differentness' and they all want him to cut their hair and such, but as the movie progresses people become more skeptical as to how safe he actually is. he falls in love with the girl of the family he's living with and near the end she comes to love him too. but this is all for naught because the town tries to hunt him down at the end in a frankenstein like manner, forcing scissorhands to flee. i don't know if it's the acting or setting or just the mood, but what i do know is that this movie is a MUST WATCH, along with other burton stuff too. every person i talk to loves this movie (or doesn't not like anyways). its definitely something to excperience.
