On paper, the choice of appointing Tim Burton as the director of the live action adaptation of the animation titled the same release in 1941 - which is also the adaptation of the novel by Helen Aberson and Harold Pearl - is a reasonable choice. Set in a circus full of unique members, featuring Colin Farrell as a one-armed father, and has the protagonist of a flying elephant who is despised because of his wide ears. Throughout his career, Burton proved to be an expert in dealing with eccentric figures who were underestimated because they were seen as strange.
But the director's touch has obviously faded lately. When Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) —film with material that seemed destined specifically for Burton — ended up as a perfunctory spectacle, I was sure the "old Burton" had disappeared. At least until he was willing to step aside for a moment from the world of large-budget film studio that hinders his freedom. But I don't think that will happen in the near future.
Dumbo was similar, when Burton found it difficult to mix and match oddities with sweet drama. Unfortunately, "sweet" and "Tim Burton" are not two matching things. As a result, we are once again treated to a typical identity of the director's modern work: the spectacle is easily forgotten full of CGI backgrounds that are not so beautiful, creative, let alone present a visual breakthrough.
Though the story has adequate material to give birth to a touching family drama. After returning from World War I, Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell), returned to the circus owned by Max Medici (Danny DeVito), where he used to take his name as a horseman. But not only found his horse had been sold to cover economic difficulties, Holt also joined in a desperate relationship with his two children, Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins). Unlike his late wife, Holt did not know how to communicate with them.
I do not blame Holt, because his children, especially the princess who dreams of being a scientist (elements who fail to get proper development or payoff), talk like adults. Ehren Kruger's text (Transformers 2-4, Scream 3, The Ring) forced Milly to speak too wisely, which often made it difficult for the child actress to give a maximum appearance.
Without his horse, Holt was tasked with caring for an elephant named Jumbo who was pregnant. Jumbo babies are expected to attract visitors. But once Dumbo (originally called Baby Jumbo) was born with super-wide ears, that hope slowly vanished. Dumbo's physical deviation was considered a disaster, until Milly and Joe learned that the flapping of the ear was able to fly the little elephant into the sky.
Of course adults don't immediately trust the two kids' confessions, giving them a challenge to prove that instead of failure, Dumbo is a miracle. It was also a challenge for Burton to execute his debut Dumbo flying in front of an audience, which should be called the "make it or break it" moment of his film, and determine whether the audience's attention would be maintained or not. Luckily, assisted by the orchestra aroused the work of Danny Elfman (Good Will Hunting, Big Fish, Spider-Man) Burton was able to create an uplifting scene so that Dumbo had enough energy to move to the next phase.
That phase introduces us to V. A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), an entrepreneur in the entertainment world who is eager to make Dumbo part of his Dreamland playground. Eva Green also played the role of a trapeze player with the nickname "Queen of the Heaven" through hypnotizing aura as usual. They both came to Max's circus, offering cooperation to all the performers, even though we know very well that he only wanted to take Dumbo.
Then what happens after the joining of the circus with the joy of Dreamland? Flying exercises and attractions, of course. Dumbo rehearsed and then appeared in shows that always produced problems. Continue to do so, until making this film like 112 minutes of flight training combination without the help of adequate narrative. I was made to wonder, what was the script trying to convey? Family value? Prohibition of judging people only by their appearance? An invitation to do good? All there and forced mixed. In effect, the Dumbo conclusion fails to stir feelings, because the process through which the character goes through is never clear.
The climax involved a rescue mission, when the circus members had the chance to show off their respective abilities (It took more than 90 minutes for them to become more than just display). This moment can be both entertaining and rewarding if (A) it's not just hitching a ride; and (B) Willing to explore elements of the "strange" people (and animals) problem that are always ridiculed. Maybe the script avoids the impression of exploitation, then decides to play it safe by presenting a half-cooked story.
The film is so flat and cold, leaving only Dumbo's eyes and smile as the only thing that radiates hearts. A scene has the potential to appear magical, when giant soap bubbles form the beautiful shapes of pink elephants. Unfortunately, the miracle faded away when Burton compiled it as a silly and cartoonish sequence. Just like the whole of Dumbo, which became one of Disney's worst modern live action adaptations due to losing its adapted source magic.
