 This movie is Rated PG for some violence, mild language, and thematic elements. The average review is 4.0/5 stars. This movie “tells the origin story of Willy Wonka, a character in the 1964 novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, featuring his early days as a chocolatier.”

 

   One review says: 

Welcome to the world of pure imagination… Close your eyes and count to ten!

“WONKA” is one of if not the best use of complete creativity through the use of the bizarre and unbelievable which is so precisely tied together with its fascinating characters and brilliant storylines.

“WONKA” wonderfully pays homage to the musical, book and film, carefully incorporating elements of all while adding unique moments of its own. The Oompa Loompa was a great example of this, being not overplayed and a chorus of them justifiably not needed, but a single Oompa Loompa references the original text, is adapted to the new version creatively with a completely new sense of whimsey and humour that gives an adaptation a sense of originality… film of the year. ”

 

    While another review says: 

“I never thought I’d see a film to knock Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein off the top spot for Worse Film Of All Time but Wonka has done it! This film is so promising – phenomenal acting talent, production values and creative ideas but the terrible boring creaking plot – and those awful, awful songs! So so bad – tuneless, nonsensical, never ending  and far too frequent. Just when you’re settling back into the longeurs of the ridiculous script thinking you’re safe, another song rears its nauseating head and it’s fingers in ears time again. The film would be so vastly improved without the soundtrack. Except for the horrors of a plot with more holes than a Swiss cheese and a giraffe milking scene – ick – with a song! Double Eeeeeeeew. Such a waste of an amazing hard working fabulous cast. Could have been an incredible  movie with a tighter, more clever script and NO SONGS. Hugh Grant was cool though.”

 

I watched this movie, and thought it was amazing. It was so fascinating.
