Surprisingly great! Depp shines as the scaredy-cat Mr. Crane. In fact, his cowardice was so funny, I could barely restrain myself from laughing aloud in class. Who knew this could be anything but ominous and mysteriousness! I definitely much preferred this to the shorty story. It doesn't have much of a similarity to it for one, and in turn wasn't mind-numbingly boring. Also really appreciated that it had a good, proper ending with no loose threads. I hate ambiguous ones.

Sleepy Hollow is one of Tim Burton's best films as well as one of Johnny Depp's best as well. This is a must watch around the Halloween season.

typical tim burton movie with still depp as still rising actor, fairly enjoyable even though the plot is not really gripping and the plot twist a bit predictable
