Cannot remember the last time I wants a Tim Burton movie.
Also cannot remember the last time I watched a Colin Farrell movie.
I cannot believe Disney allowed this movie to be made and I am getting ahead of myself.
Disney is releasing THREE live action movies, based on this animation feature, this, The Lion King and Aladdin... Will wonders never cease.
Back to Dumbo.
The script is wonderful. Note that it is NOT verbatim to the animation feature script and have to add, I much prefer this live action feature script. Hands down. (I still missed the talking rat though... )
There has always be a whimsical element to Tim Burton's films and this movie is very enhanced by this.
Tim Burton is also a very loyal director.
What do I mean?
Just look at the cast, Michael Keaton, Danny Devito and I believe if Michelle Pfiefer is a tad younger, he would have also cast her and here is where I segway to Eva Green.
I have never liked her work. Here, I absolutely love her!!! Just the right tad of.... Eva Green!!
And the C.G.I. Dumbo, all I can say is awwwwwww.....
Going back to the comment of "I cannot believe Disney" above, let's just say Michael Keaton reminds me of Walt Disney. Enuff said...
I give this movie, an 8/10
