As always Mr Depp is mesmerizingly fantastic. I wonder when the decrepit Oscars pannel will actually realize this. However, I digress.
I do like this film, a lot. The cast are all superb, the sets are wonderful and atmospheric and many of the songs are brilliant.
My only criticism would be that quite a few of the songs use the same tune which tarnishes them somewhat. Saying that, the choreography and words to these songs is very good.
It's a good film, in places very good. But it is not brilliant
