Dumbo 3D

Dumbo, the animated 1941 Disney classic, gets the Tim Burton treatment in this live-action remake starring Colin Farrell and Danny Devito.

Circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) enlists Holt Farrier (Farrell) and his children to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes a comeback, attracting entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits Dumbo for his newest venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green, Casino Royale), until Holt learns that Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

It transforms a miraculous tale into a routine story by weighing it down with a lot of nuts and bolts it didn't need.

There are thrills and feels but this reimagination of the delightful animation doesn't take flight often enough.

With production designer Rick Heinrichs, Burton forsakes his beloved gothic touches for an art deco style that lends it all a Gatsby-esque decadence.

This has been painfully de-tusked.

Even if the story starts to sag a little before the inevitable big finale, just relax and look at the screen. Every frame of this film could be taken home and hung on your wall – it's that pretty.

This live-action re-imagining of Disney's 1941 animated classic may be the sweetest film Tim Burton has ever made. It's also the safest.

...despite a few underdeveloped characters and a score that occasionally gushes like a broken mains pipe, Dumbo is a tissue factory worth of sadness dried by a big top of colourful delights.

The filmmaker's overstuffed visual imagination and appetite for sinister gloom all but trample the enchantment of a tale that, at heart, is simple and whimsical.

Is 'Dumbo' a fully-fleshed-out film with basic components like character arcs or conflict? Not entirely, no.
