Mr. Depp isn't best known as a comic actor, but he gives a witty and captivating performance, bringing wonderful buoyancy to this crazy role.

Martin Landau, as the washed-up Bela Lugosi, makes the picture come alive; unfortunately, the last half falters without him.

Martin Landau's performance as Lugosi is inspired. He should win an Oscar for it. The rest of the film, unfortunately, is not that good.

Idiosyncratic portrait of an oddball whose enthusiasm for making movies is endearing.
March 5, 2002
It's ironic that the director that produced some of the worst films of all time has gotten one of the best Hollywood-themed biopics ever made about him, but there's little doubt that Tim Burton's Ed Wood is a superb film.

A droll riot.

The finest example of Tim Burton's work as a director and a role that Johnny Depp will have to go a long way to better.

Outrageously disjointed and just as outrageously entertaining, the picture stands as a successful outsider's tribute to a failed kindred spirit.

Given the finished film, one also has to wonder if Ed Wood was interesting enough to base a two- hour movie on.

The movie's black and white photography convincingly recaptures the look and feel of 1950s sleaze, including some of the least convincing special effects in movie history.

A glorious homage to the power of film in general and one of Burton's finest moments.
January 1, 2000
In his finest, funniest, most poignant film to date, Tim Burton plays cinematic alchemist, turning drive-in schlock into movie gold.
