Critic Reviews of "Edward Scissorhands"Chicago ReaderJune 17, 2008
An original movie, though not Tim Burton's best.VarietyMay 08, 2008
A delightful and delicate comic fable.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
It remains curiously hollow.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Mr. Burton invests awe-inspiring ingenuity into the process of reinventing something very small.Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
Burton's richly entertaining update of the Frankenstein story is the year's most comic, romantic and haunting film fantasy.Film.comJanuary 01, 2000
The film has an unapologetically adolescent purity about it that transcends what would ordinarily be the shortcomings of its script.Daily Telegraph (UK)December 17, 2014
Burton's modern fairytale has an almost palpably personal feel: it is told gently, subtly and with infinite sympathy for an outsider who charms the locals but then inadvertently arouses their baser instincts.ÜberCinéJuly 25, 2011
Between this masterpiece and that other Ed (Wood), TIm Burton and Johnny Depp are at their dual-career best. Ed Wood is about how insane Hollywood is -- and Edward Scissorhands delivers the pure magic that, once in a rare while, escapes the place.LarsenOnFilmJuly 25, 2008
...perhaps the cinema's most enchanting parable about the misunderstood and alienated artist.CinefantastiqueJuly 07, 2008
... this sweet 1990 fantasy ... for the first time crystallized the latent themes in the director's work: the notion of the artist as outsider, of skills that make one special but at the same time different.TV GuideMay 08, 2008
Fine performances all around, particularly from Depp and the immensely sympathetic Wiest.
