Review
Willy Wonka is the undisputed emperor of confectionary but when his gargantuan factory mysteriously closes, the city that surrounds it drifts towards poverty. When it is announced that there are five gold tickets to be found in Wonka bars and that they will allow those children lucky enough to find them into the very bowels of Willy Wonka's chocolate world, a frenzy of expectation breaks out. What the five lucky children find is a fantastical world of chocolate rivers, sugar boats, meadows made of munchies and some very industrious squirrels. Tim Burton's adaptation of Roald Dahl's dark (but kiddy friendly) morality tale is a lavish visual extravaganza and Depp makes a suitably convincing Willy Wonka. Great fun for all, but I still prefer Gene Wilder's original Mr Wonka and his Umpa Lumpa's really Rocked!
