    Gothic is the word most associated with Mr Tim Burton. Weird, odd, stinky, also spring to mind, but when it comes to his movies his Gothic sensibilities run wild. Look at the evidence. Sleepy Hollow, Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Sweeney Todd, and of course his 1989 incarnation of Batman. He also likes to work with a specific type of actor and as time has gone by a certain Johnny Depp has become his favorite collaborator, with sometimes mixed…

    Not quite as terrible as I was expecting though still nothing special.
    Eva Green is pretty good. Actually, most of the cast is perfectly fine. The script is the main problem here. None of the jokes land when they should and the plot is instantly forgettable.
    Tim Burton does his Tim Burton thing. It's no more or less inspired than it has been in the last decade and a half or so.

    Not entirely without merit, it makes Alice in Wonderland look amazing, but it seems so completely unnecessary and more than a little pointless.

    Completely predictable and expected Tim Burton. There is nothing new here and none of the jokes hit any kind of mark. Not that it would have changed anything, but I felt like everyone was miscast.

    Great cast and very well directed by Tim Burton, but they try to cram way too much story line into one film. Too bad because there is a lot of really good stuff here. And Eva Green is a great villain.
