Not very good
Let's be clear: this movie is not half as good as the original. The backstory for Charlie was deleted, while a clichéd backstory for Wonka was added. Wilder's Wonka was charming and magical, Depp's Wonka was creepy and mean. The original was a movie for adults dressed up as a movie for kids, this one is strictly for the kiddies. The oompa-loompas are played by an old man (can't figure out what they were thinking). The children were zero dimensional, most of their parents had little to say, the acting was one-note at best. The only actor in the film to give a good performance is Charlie, but the script gives him little to say.
Yes, I am biased because I loved the original. If you've never seen the original this movie would be easier to like. But if you love the original you will not love this one. It's inferior in every category.

The dumbest movie of all time
This is the dumbest movie of all time. The average 3rd grader knows enough science to debunk all the gibberish the main characters dish out. At some critical moments I burst out laughing. I have no idea why they don't give a grad student in physics some Hot Pockets and Xena tapes in exchange for cleaning up some of the silliness of this script.
