For Tim Burton, this is one of his best movies in years. For those of us that are horror buffs, he pulls out the stops including a cameo from Christopher Lee (Start Wars Count Duku/ LOTR's Soriman) from one of his old Hammer productions from the 50's. It's classic! Being a horror fan from childhood the movie really hit home. Burton has you emotionally compromised in the first 5 minutes building strong feelings for the main characters. This is a key element to a good horror movie.
I had two five year old's in toe and the fear factor was perfect for their age. They were scared but not too scared to quit watching. It was a great introduction into the genera. They came out of the movie excited for their new hero: Frankenweenie!
This is a must see for kids 5-10 or horror buffs.

I like it! I took my 11 year old twins and we really enjoyed it. It was a bit short,but it was worth it. I say go see it, it will make you laugh. I sure did.

My Grandson loved it. Little bit of the old Frankenstein story updated for kids. The Adults loved it and got the story. I enjoyed it as much as the kids did.

This film suffers from uneven plotting, and an identity crisis: is it supposed to be funny, creepy, heartwarming or scary? It seems to try to be all of them, and in the process fails to truly be any of them. It needed more humor (i.e., more Edgar, and more of the new teacher). The beginning was engaging, with a lot of character interaction. The middle was plodding and dull at times. The end was a traditional monster movie. I can't say it's for little kids, given the deaths and monsters, and it wouldn't hold their attention anyway. I'd say this one is really only for Tim Burton fans.

Just saw "Frankenweenie" it was so good!!! I love Tim Burton!! I have never seen anything of his that I don't love, "The Nightmare Before Christmas" "Corpse Bride" "Alice In Wonderland" "Coraline" just to name a few, they are all good!! This cartoon movie is in Black and White like "The Nightmare Before Christmas" its in the same story line as "Frankenstein" but with a dog. I love that this is a Disney movie. I didn't see it in 3D, because 3D makes me dizzy. I hate that all the Cartoon movies and some live action movies are going 3D. But anyway if you like Tim Burton then go see this movie!!!
