What a blazing disappointment. Short movie, very short on laughs.. I felt like I saw 75% of the movie in the previews.
Hotel Transylvania was 1000 times funnier, more clever, and just plain enjoyable by comparison.

This movie shows that tim burton still has it and hasn't completely left us. This movie is scary and depressing so kids might not be to fond of it but enjoyed Frankenweenie the style of the movie is realy odd but interesting and i thought the black and white woild be distracting but it really isn't. One thing this movie does really well is the voice acting i really enjored edgar in the movie he was by far my favorite part. I would give this movie a 6.5/10

Frankenweenie was absolutely DOPE! Visual textures and stylings were breathtaking. Even almost got teary eyed a few times.... Soft spot for dogs i guess. Tim Burton killed it one more time. So beautifully done. Paid many many homages to previous thrillers besides the obvious Frankenstein. ie, Godzilla, Beetlejuice, Pet Cemetery, just to name a few. While a little loud in the IMAX setting with the lightning for younger more docile children, it's good fun for the whole family. Highly suggest it even if you're not taking the kiddos. Surprise was my 2 yo daughter sitting through the whole thing—her first movie experience.

I found this monster themed kiddie movie to be fairly dull and uninspired. It isn't funny or scary and the story goes completely off the rails in the second half. Tim Burton fans will likely enjoy this more than I did but I think Burton stopped being an interesting director around the time he did his first Batman film and that he's only done one or two good films since then--Frankenweenie continues his long streak of films that should have been much, much better. On the positive side, iFrankenweenie doesn't suck nearly as much as Dark Shadows did.

Took our grandchild who is 7 to the movie. We all loved it. I love the use of the characters. Tim Burton took a classic horror film and made it FUN for everyone.
