Plot Summary

Fantasy Adventure. Acclaimed director Tim Burton brings his vividly imaginative style to the beloved Roald Dahl classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, about eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka (Depp) and Charlie, a good-hearted boy from a poor family who lives in the shadow of Wonka's extraordinary factory. Long isolated from his own family, Wonka launches a worldwide contest to select an heir to his candy empire. Five lucky children, including Charlie, draw golden tickets from Wonka chocolate bars and win a guided tour of the legendary candy-making facility that no outsider has seen in 15 years. Dazzled by one amazing sight after another, Charlie is drawn into Wonka's fantastic world in this astonishing and enduring story.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The summer's most visually arresting escapist adventure. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: In its best sections, it's magically deranged in a way no other filmmaker could even come close to pulling off. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: You can't help feeling that a fantasist as accomplished as Burton can manage this kind of project with his eyes shut. The trouble is that, from film to film, his dreams are starting to look the same. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Jul 19, 2005

Fresh: The production is top shelf. – Andrew Guy, Houston Chronicle, Nov 7, 2005

I love this movie!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has gorgeous scenery and wonderfully cast actors, especially Johnny Depp who plays Willy Wonka (amazing performance!) and Freddie Highmore as Charlie Bucket. I personally liked this version better than Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with Gene Wilder because it is so much closer to the book and I think it is more interesting. Great movie!
