You can eat the grass?By JediSi (301 reviews) from Kent , 29 Sep 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' is based on the Roald Dahl novel of the same name. Dahl wrote many so called children's books but the stories were full of society critic. Tim Burton has followed Dahl very accurately and he has saved the critical voice of Dahl. With a lot of black humor and jokes makes the movie more than enjoyable experience.
Johnny Depp lights up every single movie he has been in, and Tim Burton always has a way of giving you a 'dark fairytale' vibe, which means it's the perfect combo...as we've have seen before in classics like Edward Scissorhands.
The inside of the factory is perfectly magical, and because of this, the movie had its final touch of greatness. Awesome musical score from Danny Elfman adds to this work perfection.
Wonderful direction, brilliant cast, make Charlie and the Chocolate Factory a tour through the factory that you cannot miss. It doesn't take a golden ticket to go see this film, so I recommend seeing it to anyone who hasn't already.

Charlie & the Chocolate factoryBy a customer from England , 09 Jul 2006Easy viewing - great set.
My children found this CREEPY!By Claire Neeson from Cambridge , 09 Jul 2006Disappointing re-make: trying too hard and is too abstract for young kiddies. My 3 didn't really enjoy it and were a little disturbed by Jonny Depp's portrayal of Wonka. I much prefer the original.
Classic Tim Burton!By Tommy23 (56 reviews) from Edinburgh,Scotland. , 09 Jul 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]A classic Tim Burton moive slighty dark in bits, but never gonna be as good as the original!

Liked the Loompas, but Gene Wilder funnierBy Mark Morgan from Doncaster , 06 Jul 2006Oompa Loomps made this film.
That is not saying much.
This film was all visual. Characters rather shallow.
The Gene Wilder version is funnier.
