Unlike 1971's "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory," this is not a musical, although the Oompa Loompas still sing. And Burton does a more faithful adaptation of the 1964 book by Roald Dahl. Poor boy Charlie Bucket (Highmore) is one of five winners of a golden ticket that allows him to tour the mysterious Willy Wonka's (Depp) chocolate factory. Fans of the original may have qualms, but this one has a little more depth and heart, great visuals, and the cooperation of Dahl's widow, an exec producer. Depp is brilliantly quirky and Highmore shines.
