This was a really good musical. The whole family would enjoy it. It's not similar to Disney movies. It's more like the original Willy Wonka. The singing is good. This movie is set as a time before the Willy Wonka with Gene Wilder. They did a great job of choosing an actor for the main character. His looks make you think of a young Gene Wilder. His voice is good fit for the music. He doesn't sing in falsetto. Great movie.

Very enjoyable! Wonka fills in the backstory of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. Timothee Chalamet, a young Willy Wonka did a wonderful job creating the mystery and magic of Wonka’s world of imagination. The music, vocals, and dancing sequences were excellent. The story was interwoven with heartwarming emotion. Will the movie win academy awards, maybe not, but the time was well spent and I enjoyed the movie immensely.

I didn’t really expect much of this movie being a kid’s movie and all, but was pleasantly surprised and actually shed a few tears towards the end (I won’t spoil it though). Anyway, it was a very heartwarming movie about dreams, faith, joy and love. I thoroughly enjoyed it and even more surprising was that my husband loved it too!!

This movie is a great example of a reboot done right. Unlike Tim Burton’s Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, this story doesn’t just pay light hearted homages to Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka while adding some nice lighthearted spins for Willy’s Origin story instead of being dark and weird. The cast was perfect, the story was well paced and well told, the songs were wonderful and memorable! I think those who hate this movie are very biased and believing Hollywood has run out of ideas. This idea is actually genius and well deserved of a better reboot. See this movie if you love the Paddington movies or a fan of the original Willy Wonka, you’ll enjoy yourself and have food on hand lol 😂

Movie staff needs to walk around more cause there’s people who do not respect the theater and talk so much and let their kids walk around a lot.

A good movie. Not exceptional but not bad - a good stand alone for Willy Wonka but not very true to character. Also… timothee chalamumu…

Immersive clever storytelling. I didn’t think that happened anymore. The lead actor was great. It did lack the satirical bite of the original but it was Way better than that Johnny Depp piece of awfulness

According to most my opinion is unpopular but i love this film. Its not the story you expect and unless they do another one it doesn’t tie into previous films enough. But i love it as its own independent thing. I feel like everyone has made their minds up before seeing it, go watch it. Its great

It's as enthusiastic yet inscrutable as Wonka himself, played with an elegantly withholding quality by Chalamet, who in moments of quiet contemplation and madcap inspiration could be Gene Wilder's long-lost grandchild.

While Wonka overfills its slate with two or three escalating climaxes, the throwaway verbal jokes en route keep the contraption humming.

In addition to committing to its sense of fun, Wonka reminds us that life is made sweetest by the people we share it with. If that’s not particularly novel, it’s still as comforting and scrumptious a notion as a chocolate bar.
