Charlie and The Chocolate Factory (2005)

Directed by Tim Burton

Reviewed by Monster Mike

This film is the remake to the classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory in which both of these movies were based on a book. I liked Charlie and the Chocolate Factory better, but it lacked a few things that the original movie had, for example the original had more color and a creepier boat ride. A brilliant performance done by Johnny Depp, who played Willy Wonka in the new movie. Johnny Depp also got shot in the throat in Oliver Stone's movie, Platoon. Oliver Stone has nothing to do with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but if he did I am sure that the movie would have more heads exploding and Tony Todd. Danny Elfman did the vocals of the Oompa Loompas. You can't have a Tim Burton movie, without the creepy sound of Danny Elfman. The Oompa Loompas were played by one person named Deep Roy (the name sounds like a title of a porn movie). Charlie Bucket, who is played by Freddie Highmore, is a cold and boring character in this version. I cared not for this child called Charlie Bucket and I am glad that he didn't have that many speaking roles in this film. I thought this movie was too creepy for children, but the theater I went to was jammed packed with kids, so what the hell do I know. Despite the bland Charlie Character, I did enjoy this movie and I am giving it an 8 out of 10.
