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.

Great filmBy Cazuk1976 (230 reviews) from Peterborough , 23 Apr 2009I really enjoyed this film, i found the only problem is watching it late at night had me dreaming about chocolate, oompa loompas and flying elevators all night! Johnny Depp played the role fantastically, as did all the lead and supporting actors. A very good film, which i really enjoyed!
Not ImpressedBy a customer from Rotherham , 16 Apr 2009I though this remake was poor and a bit scary in places for the kids. We liked the origional version much better.
