The film had a hard to follow story in it and a useless backstory that was hard to understand and tie into the plot. Also there were some continuity errors and lack if explanations. Overall I did like it because it's hard not to like something with Johnny Depp in it.

The critics have an accurate account of the film. Christopher Walken is the best part. Washington Irving's short story is a little stretched out, and all the underlying meaning therein had been removed in this adaptation. It is okay, but a little weak and often overlong.

Another Johnny Depp-Tim Burton combine, with Depp not being "full blown". The visuals are typical Burton gothic - and there is, like in most of his other movies, never any sunlight - it's always winter and twilight or night. With the creepiness set by lighting, it gets a booster with Depp's act - but its only creepiness, not horror, and I don't think it was meant to be a horror/slasher movie either. It's a crime and detection with the supernatural thrown in. And that works well.
Ok Watch.

While, the movie is visually pleasing and chilling, it takes certain leaps to fulfill it's narrative that leave you scratching your head. If you believe Depp is a competent investigator you won't have an issue, but he plays early like he's a scared bumbling fool.

Depp carries the film despite some spotty dialogue and the supporting cast does just enough to make this solid. If Burton had tightened it up a bit it could have been truly amazing.

An atmospheric film, somewhat gory, but carefully sprinkled with funny moments.

Interesting fiction of sleepy hollow. I think the tv series might be more entertaining though.

However shallow it may be, Sleeping hollow is another entertaining entry from Tim Burton.

"Sleepy Hollow" is another winner from Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. It's like a lot of their other movies together. It's has a gothic tone and personality to it. This is the second time that Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have collaborated with Christopher Walken. But not in the same movie together. Tim Burton worked with Christopher Walken in "Batman Returns" which came in 1992. Johnny Depp worked with Christopher Walken in "Nick of Time" which came out in 1995.

Amazing cinematography

Good movie. Until the end. Then it just puked on itself.

Wonderfully macabre gothic mystery with fantastic cinematography and special effects, just the right amount of light comedy, and a great creature creation in the horseman. Overly convoluted by the reveal at the end, but far from boring; one of the last good Depp / Burton collabs.

"Sleepy Hollow's" pacing may be a bit too off-kilter at times, but its hard to deny the visual majesty at hand, thanks in no small part to the creative talents of Tim Burton and Emmanuel Lubezki.

Feels like a Hammer film, which is a very good thing.

Christopher Walken is the coolest monster, ever.

Sleepy Hollow may not be Burtons best work, but it's visually striking and engaging nonetheless.
½ October 12, 2015
Broadly lifted from the original story with some new twist that have the usual Burton flair. Visually stunning. Fun watch enhanced by the performances of the all star cast.
½ October 11, 2015
Sleepy Hollow entertains and mildly intrigues without being thoroughly involving.
Grade: C-

Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow suffers from extreme tonal confusion, and some head-scratching writing, but is still the same fun gothic experience that Tim Burton is known for.

I had to bump up my rating... I forgot how sweet this movie was. Beautifully creepy and strangely humorous. Sleepy Hollow is just fun.
