Profile of Edward Scissorhands

The mood of Edward Scissorhands is bittersweet, gloomy, and atmospheric. The plot centers around impossible love, a tragic hero, and suburban life. It is a romance and fantasy movie. Stylistically, Edward Scissorhands is gothic, is fairytale-like, and is surreal. The pacing is slow. It takes place, at least partly, in the suburbs. Edward Scissorhands happens in the 1950s. The movie is known for being original, a modern classic, and critically acclaimed. It is especially suggested for a date night. Note that Edward Scissorhands includes profanity and violent content.

The theme--that just beyond the edge of the perfectly normal lies the truly bizarre--is realized with intelligence and visual flair.

Disappointing
After all the references I'd heard to this movie, and knowing Tim Burton, I was expecting to be impressed, and I was not. The story is too far-fetched to even be called fantasy. "Fable" is more like it. And the moral of the fable seems to be...

Don't get me wrong, Roger Ebert is one of my favorite critics, but he dropped the ball on this one. This story of a scissors enabled fellow is fun, strange, and eerily beautiful. Johnny Depp certainly shows his acting prowess here, bringing life to...

Edward Scissorhands makes for a great character. However, had it not been for Tim Burton's signature style, this movie wouldn't have been half as good. You have the gothic music and visual style (Though not as much of the latter as you'd expect), as...

This movie is incredibly touching. It'd been a long while since I'd seen it, and the fact that it still moved me is wonderful. Vincent Price as the Inventor could not have been more perfectly cast, and Johnny Depp as Edward is easily one of his best...

Fantastic film!
Fantastic is a word that can be used in more than one way in regard to "Edward Scissorhands." This is a beautiful romantic fantasy that is sentimental and touching. By the end of the movie you'll realize how fantastic it really is. Exceptional...
