The Patriot Ledger

It ranks among Burton's most personal films, encompassing familiar themes of loneliness, isolation and an insatiable need for love and acceptance.

"Frankenweenie" is not just cute, it's weird. And, I love it.

Tim Burton's Frankenweenie embodies the excitement, innocence, awkwardness and imagination of childhood.

Extended to feature length, the premise doesn't thin out but gains substance and momentum.

"Frankenweenie" isn't Burton's best work, but it's still a solid outing for the strange, death-obsessed director.

Disney should've had more faith in this premise back in 1984, when it mattered, instead of shocking it back to a bigger life now...

Victor's relationship with Sparky is lovely, even when the revivified dog corpse is stitched together with thick black thread and his tail or ear falls off.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

While not a true original in its own right, and therefore not a classic, it is still classic Burton with his creepy, kooky trademarks, so we'll take it.

Maintains the legitimately dark tone of the original short while expanding the narrative in a pleasingly Scissorhands-esque direction.

In the very best sense, the film is wall-to-wall eye candy.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

'Frankenweenie' is far from his best, but it is a timely reassurance that the old Tim Burton still exists and may be able to work his black magic again.

Beautiful, technically astonishing animation and the emotional whack of a lightning bolt cannot quite hide the stitches holding together a paucity of ideas and humour.

Even though it's not among his best films, I'm just happy that Tim Burton has finally made a movie I can recommend to people again.

Frankenweenie is rammed with credible horror references, so this is a great movie for children to see if you want to them to develop a good perspective of film history in years to come.

Visually captivating and smartly written, Frankenweenie brings Tim Burton's career back from the metaphorical dead.

I loved this. It is so beautiful and there's almost an innocence to it that Burton achieves.
