    Meh--2.5. Okay maybe a 3.5, if you share your Twizzlers. Mimicing a young fred savage voice from the Princess Bride, " Does there have to be so much Singing?" Getting past the overwhelming sense you have just agreed to a broadway musical, yes, there is far too much singing. Proceed with the understanding that 2024 film "WONKA" is broadway theater brought to the big screen. In this film, it's a musical with excessive amounts of singing to tell a story about Willy Wonka bringing to life his chocolate dreams of both magical chocolate/candy maker and chocolatier slash factory owner who --yes, has to deal with shade from his competitors in the chocolate biz', the main rival being Mr. Arthur Slugworth. With all the magical colors,costumes, dazzling displays, candy dreams, whizpoppers, CGI , AI, movie effects, and signing, it might be a bit confusing as to why it's called shade? and is that Keegan-Michael Key? Nooooice. None the less, you can pick up the under tones of how easy it is to sway your allegance witha sweet bribe or three-- child brainwashing aside, Hugh Grant could have had more screen time, and it pains me to compare Timothee and Johnny Depp, but it's clear who pulled off Gene Wilder's charmming influence for this film's version of Willy Wonka. " Love you, Johnny, -- the award goes to Timothee." hmm, it's almost as if I'm expecting Harry potter to "poof" into this story at some point. Overall, this film--er-um rather musical on film reminds me how good acting and directing was before Disney took over the world. Remain calm, Tolkien is still carrying on ;)

    And it's so cartoonish I think the head writer must be a person with Down syndrome. This gets negative stars. I want my money back.
  • This was really bad.

    We thought this movie was wack and had we gone to the theater we would have left. Never listen to the media. I’m glad we only streaming one view on hbo max and didn’t purchase this. Eesh.

    I saw it yesterday and was wowed. It is a great family film with good music and great graphics. Much better than I was expecting. I always thought Hugh Grant was taller.

    Whether you have a sweet tooth or not , this movie and music album:Wonka is truly amazing, if you can get a D Box experience for the theaters it moves to the movement of the songs. It’s well worth the money. But this movie and album is great. Gets the whole family laughing and happy. Thank you for such a good performance Charlemagne. well done producers. My wife loves this movie and I’ve seen it three times, and one is still watch it so this is a good movie! thank you Charlie for making everything really good Timothée Chalamet and wonderful comic relief Rowan Atkinson! And Keegan-Michael Key 1800 boxes deep in love with this movie! Thank you everyone for your hard work!
