Charlie And The Chocolate Factory (2005) Review


OK
For a guy who's earned a reputation for being one of the most original filmmakers on earth, Tim Burton has an awfully large fondness for remakes. And what a mixed bag they are: His hit Batman spawned a huge movie franchise, while his Planet of the Apes stands as one of the most widely trashed films in recent memory.

And so Burton takes a third stab at the remake game with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, an update/remake (call it what you want) of the beloved 1971 movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Roald Dahl's classic children's novel. But the stakes here are far greater than they were with Apes. That was a campy sci-fi movie that no one really cared about. In fact, the original Apes had long since killed itself under the weight of four increasingly awful sequels. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory frequently tops "Favorite Movie Ever" lists, and news of the remake has met with nothing but scorn from fans (including 1971 star Gene Wilder, who later retracted his scathing remarks).

Charlie & The Chocolate Factory Review


OK
The playfully warped imagination of director Tim Burtonis ideally suited to the task of bringing Roald Dahl's twisted-as-taffychildren's tale "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" to the bigscreen, and the sourball confection created as a result is pure movie magic.

It's so enthralling in spirit that an audible gasp of joyrose from a sneak preview audience Monday night when -- even though thisis a given point of the plot -- impoverished, good-hearted little CharlieBucket (the gifted Freddie Highmore) unwrapped his Willy Wonka chocolatebar and found one of five sparklingly golden tickets to tour the toweringtitular candy plant.

Inside the mysterious factory, Burton brings deliciousand Technicolor-bright life to Dahl's visions of chocolate rivers (I sensea theme park ride in our future), everlasting gobstoppers, magic glasselevators and Oompa Loompas, Wonka's staff of uncanny munchkins (all playedby a small, amusingly stoic actor named Deep Roy, who is made even smallerthrough CGI effects).

He also delights in dispatching Dahl's infamous quartetof other ticket winners -- spoiled brats with eerily plasticized faceswho soon fall victim to various candy-making contraptions amusingly befittingtheir particular disciplinary problems.
