As with Pirates, the story often stalls while Depp does his stuff, but his fish-out-of-water vampire is roguish, mannered and a hoot, as you'd expect.. though it's Green's wild-eyed pale-skinned seductress who really sinks her teeth into the film.
The sequel baiting is unwarranted and patently absurd. That's because "Dark Shadows" is best left self-contained and self-assured in its silly-serious storytelling. It's somewhere between a timeless play's tragedy and the punch of a 1970s pop song.
