It was decent, but nothing to rave about, 6 October 2012
No spoilers here - just an honest review. I'm not going to write a
novel on the evolution of Tim Burton as others have. The movie is,
after all, what is being reviewed here.
In my opinion it's a "just scary enough" movie for kids for this
Halloween season. My grandsons (ages 5 & 7)seemed to enjoy it, as did
I. It has a little bit of everything - sad, happy, scary, funny
moments. It doesn't focus too much on the "darkness" of the subject at
hand before moving on to lighter moments, which kept the kids from
either bawling their eyes out or hiding under my arm, and for that I am
I gave it 7 out of 10 - it was a good movie to take the kids to to kill
an afternoon, but it wasn't one of the best movies I've ever seen, so
it doesn't warrant a higher rating in my opinion.
