    Seriously, Tim Burton, just stop it. Stop right now. Yeah, you too, Depp. This horrifyingly lazy adaptation of a 60's supernatural soap-opera(?) is an unmitigated disaster. The script is all over the place, never knowing what story it's trying to tell, the characters are about as interesting as bricks, and the design feels like autopilot Burton-alia. Eva Green, vamping it up as the villain and sexy as hell, is the only bright spark.

    A movie I love more every time I see it. I liked it the first time but, honestly, now i'm kind of in love with it. The 70s milieu is brilliantly evocative and if the movie kind of shambles along, depressedly, that kind of adds to the overall oddness of it. I think it's his best movie since Sleepy Hollow, definitely his most diverting. Depp does a good job and so does the entire cast. Fans of the show seemed…

    It was meh. It might even be my least favorite Johnny Depp film.

    A film so dumb it makes Meet The Spartans look like Citizen Kane. Would rather dig my eyeballs out.

    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.

    I don't get it. Nice visuals, though.

    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.
