    Description

    Edward Scissorhands is a classic Tim Burton and Johnny Depp film about a small suburban town that receives a visit from a castaway unfinished science experiment named Edward. A satire on the normality of Middle-America and their fear of outsiders. A magical fairytale story of loneliness, learning, and love; that will make you laugh, curse, and cry.

    It remains curiously hollow.

    Mr. Burton invests awe-inspiring ingenuity into the process of reinventing something very small.

    Name user

    Burton's richly entertaining update of the Frankenstein story is the year's most comic, romantic and haunting film fantasy.

    Enchantment on the cutting edge, a dark yet heartfelt portrait of the artist as a young mannequin.

    Name user

    Burton has not yet found the storytelling and character-building strength to go along with his pictorial flair.

    The film has an unapologetically adolescent purity about it that transcends what would ordinarily be the shortcomings of its script.

    Depp is perfectly cast, Burton builds a surrealistically funny cul-de-sac world, and there are some very funny performances from grownups Dianne Wiest, Kathy Baker and Alan Arkin.

    The romanticism has a personal dimension -- for Edward is, of course, Burton's surreal portrait of himself as an artist: a wounded child converting his private darkness into outlandish pop visions. Like Edward, he finds the light.
