Being a huge fan of Tim Burton I class this as a must see movie, I had a lot of expectations and could almost imagine some of the treats that were in store.
The film started off brilliantly, the scenes had humour and that general weirdness which only Burton brings to the table. The story was building nicely and becoming very interesting, I was getting sucked in. But in the later stages of the movie it loses the way, it stops being as interesting and becomes a little stale.
Visually the movie is stunning, exactly what you'd expect from Burton and then some. It's a true feast for the eyes.
Overall: Perhaps I expected too much from Burton, but for me this just wasn't his best. It started off great, I was really into the story and enjoying everything I was seeing but it peaked and never went anywhere else. I started to lose interest in it and thats why it only gets 3/5.
