User Reviews: I should hate this, being such a fan of the original, but to be honest I really like it. The story has been realised in a lot more of an appropriate way for the modern world. Tim Burton has yet again done a tremendous job of bringing this fantasy world to life. It’s eccentric, wonderfully mad, funny and just lovable. It does a better job of bringing the original material to the screen than the original, the only problem I have is with Johnny Depp. I don’t have I problem with his acting, I think it’s great, I just feel he’s been directed to play the role too weirdly. The "tragic madness" of his character doesn’t sit too well with me, and I don’t think all of the back-story was necessary. Aside from that it is a great film that does stand up to the original.
