Some might fear TIM BURTON may no longer have it,worry not,this is likely to be considered one of his best for some time.
A young boy becomes heartbroken over his dog dying,but in science class,gets the idea of reanimating his canine pal,so the fun begins.
The jokes maay not have been as fast and frequent as i was expecting,plus the fact there's no colour might seem brave,but it is still a movie to watch again and again because it's so brilliantly made.
It's an interesting idea to stay true to the old black and whites and use that,along with images and jokes from those old movies that mostly adults will get. It's all very well done,charcters that are very likeable,that burton style animation and a message about life and death to finish it off nicely.
True it might get some kids thinking the message is if your pet dies,plug it into a socket,but i think the movie does a good job of explaining how science should be used correctly. There are certainly enough funny moments to keep all ages happy,even if not as thick and fast as some animated films,but what get here is that Burton genius. He dazzles,even in black and white!
