Acclaimed director Tim Burton brings his vividly imaginative style to the beloved Roald Dahl classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, about eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp) and Charlie Bucket (Freddie Highmore), a good-hearted boy from a poor family who lives in the shadow of Wonka's extraordinary factory.

Most nights in the Bucket home, dinner is a watered-down bowl of cabbage soup, which young Charlie gladly shares with his mother (Helena Bonham Carter) and father (Noah Taylor) and both pairs of grandparents. Theirs is a tiny, tumbledown, drafty old house but it is filled with love. Every night, the last thing Charlie sees from his window is the great factory, and he drifts off to sleep dreaming about what might be inside.

For nearly fifteen years, no one has seen a single worker going in or coming out of the factory, or caught a glimpse of Willy Wonka himself, yet, mysteriously, great quantities of chocolate are still being made and shipped to shops all over the world.

One day Willy Wonka makes a momentous announcement. He will open his famous factory and reveal "all of its secrets and magic" to five lucky children who find golden tickets hidden inside five randomly selected Wonka chocolate bars.

Nothing would make Charlie's family happier than to see him win but the odds are very much against him as they can only afford to buy one chocolate bar a year, for his birthday.

Indeed, one by one, news breaks around the world about the children finding golden tickets and Charlie's hope grows dimmer. First there is gluttonous Augustus Gloop, who thinks of nothing but stuffing sweets into his mouth all day, followed by spoiled Veruca Salt, who throws fits if her father doesn't buy her everything she wants. Next comes Violet Beauregarde, a champion gum chewer who cares only for the trophies in her display case, and finally surly Mike Teavee, who's always showing off how much smarter he is than everyone else.

But then, something wonderful happens. Charlie finds some money on the snowy street and takes it to the nearest store for a Wonka Whipple-Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight, thinking only of how hungry he is and how good it will taste. There, under the wrapper is a flash of gold. It's the last ticket. Charlie is going to the factory! His Grandpa Joe (David Kelly) is so excited by the news that he springs out of bed as if suddenly years younger, remembering a happier time when he used to work in the factory, before Willy Wonka closed its gates to the town forever. The family decides that Grandpa Joe should be the one to accompany Charlie on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

To be fair this is not the worst re-make I have ever seen, it's not the best, but not the worst. I found the Umppa Lumppa's songs very annoying and the fact that there is about 6 songs through the movie lasting about 3 minutes per session really tested my endurance levels to continute to view. On the flip side to that negative I do like how it goes into the past of Willy Wonker so you can see what made him who and why he is the way he is etc. I cant really make up my mind on this one whether I like it more than I dislike it or vice verser, therefore 3/5.

 Fantastic Film For All Of The Family

I had not heard very good reviews about this film - I sat and watched it with my children and we all loved it - I did not like the original 1970 film and was very curious about the re-make - vast improvement all round and Johnny Depp played the role of Willy Wonka extremely well and also looked the part!! Liked the ending aswell as it rounded off the film very well. I have since watched this film several times and we still enjoy it everytime we watch it - one word can only describe it FANTASTIC

 Pure Quality

Well, compared to the original its is brilliant. Fab cast expect for the slightly scary johnny depp but without him in it, it would be bad. Tim burton did a brilliant job.
