This is a story of an ordinary little boy named Charlie Bucket. He was not faster, or stronger, or more clever than other children. His family was not rich or powerful or well-connected; in fact, they barely had enough to eat. Charlie Bucket was the luckiest boy in the entire world. He just didn't know it yet.

VERY disappointing to say the least compared to Mel Stuart's version
I, like many others loved the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I felt connected with Charlie, and I felt as if I was the one inheriting the Factory. It was a classic, but by today's standards it looks very outdated. The main problem with Burtons "adaptation" of the book, was I felt he went for style over substance. Sure, this one looks better, the factory and elevator are superb, but this just ISN'T a good movie AT ALL. The oompa loopas in this one are all the same lame person(Deep Roy), and I was very upset over that, seeing as I loved the "Oompa Loopa Doo Ba Dee Doo, I've got a Brand new puzzle for you" songs, NOT the dreadful "songs" in this one. I just couldn't get into the children at all, Veruca was poorly done, same with Mike Teevee, Violet. I didn't buy Deep for 1 second as Wonka, not 1. He was just annoying, humorless, and creepy. Grandpa Joe sucked in this one for sure. There wasn't one scene where I thought that there was a reason for remaking it except for money. Then there's this pointless sub-plot with Wonka and his father. The point is, even though Mel Stuart's version steered away from the book, it made for a MUCH BETTER movie. DO NOT see this one expecting a well done movie at all, in fact it is quite the contrary.
