Rich It’s been a long, long time since I’ve loved a Tim Burton movie, but this has the potential to be a return to form. The story is certainly ideal Burton territory and I like the cast.
Will Doesn’t do it for me, I’m afraid – it looks twee as heck. I wish Burton would break away from his tired visual tropes and make something low- key and stripped down like Ed Wood again.
Rhian I like the look of this. Eva Green looks – and sounds – amazing and Asa Butterfield has already shown us he can combine just the right sense of oddness with solid emotional acting.
Ian So, X- Men Victoriana then, basically? Not exactly a radical shift of direction for Tim Burton, but it seems rather sweet and charming, and the total absence of Johnny Depp is a relief.
