Although there have been some bad reviews for this movie, I found it very entertaining and a wonderful and interesting retelling of the ledend of sleepy hollow.
I loved this movie. I liked the fact that this movie had thrills and chills as well as a little humor. Johnny Depp did an excellent job as Icabob Crane and should be commended.
Disappointment. I expected more from Tim Burton. Now, had Hitchcock done this, it would have been a thriller.
I'm only saying good for this movie because of one thing and one thing only - the wonderful special effects and the dark tones of Tim Burton. I would have said wait for the rental because the suspense and campy acting leave a lot to be desired - however, if you had the chance to see this on the big screen you should for the wonderful sound, cinematography, and special effects alone. This is why THX, surround sound, and grotesquely huge movie screens were made for - eye candy.
However, Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci try to be campy and sometimes funny in this movie - I thought they should have stuck with one concept. Either make it funny or make it scarey - this movie was not enough of either one - leaving a bad taste in your mouth when you left the movie theater. You left wanting more - especially from the wonderfully talented and ever imaginative Tim Burton.
Although he does do a magnificient job at transforming this story onto screen visually - it is not his best and left this Tim Burton fanatic wanting oh so much more...
An remake of Washington Irving classic, which was pigeonholed as a kid's classic, thanks to the aminated short being released in the 1940's by Walt Disney. Tim Burton's version is more loyal to the book.
