Too childish :-/
Awful movie. The plot is terrible, just rough mixture of Bradbury's, Orwell's and other motifs. Primitive and plain as two planks, with loads of illogicalities and inconsistencies, it's just for five-year-old kids, not older, or mentally retarded people. Although fighting scenes are quite beautiful, Bale's acting is pretty good and... the puppy is really lovely.
I thought that would be enough to express my opinion on the movie - it's not so thoughtful to say more about it. But IMDb rules required some more from me... so here I go - explaining my words above. I really can't understand how the screenwriter and the director could expect from adult and mentally mature people to swallow such an idea as to avoid wars and violence all is need to be done is erasing ALL kinds of feelings and emotions and colours of the world... What perverted mind can hit upon that idea? Is it not obvious that there are positive emotions and negative ones, and that not necessary negative feelings such as anger, hatred, rage etc. but often sober-minded calculations bring to wars? And what is more astounding is that seemingly adult and mentally mature movie-goers swallow this idea with enthusiasm and exaltation! That is beyond me.
primitive movie with wrong ideas
Stupid and primitive movie imposing wrong and corruptive ideas (like communistic) that all poor are good people and the riches are all spoiled, corrupted, bad, etc., who don't deserve all that richness and success they have, that all that is needed to be done is to give to a poor kind man a big successful enterprise and this would be a way to make the world better. How that looser Mr. Bucket (he is exactly like his father and Charlie's definitely gonna be the same)could run the factory if he was incapable to support his own family properly? How these poor kind people could make the world better if they are unable to make their own lives better?
And this is unbelievable that a twelve-year boy is happy with his family though they could not give him anything but a spoiled cap from toothpaste tube and a bar of chocolate once a year. He would be, if he didn't know that other children have normal dwelling, food, toys etc. Family love and support are VERY important, but they are just unable to compensate essentials and all other natural human (and children's) wants. Extremities shown in the movie are not convincing.
Johnny Depp is amusing, as usual. His acting (or rather making grimaces) is the only thing worth seeing in this movie.
