Editorial Reviews

Abandoned by her father as a child, the independent twenty-one-year-old Alice is accustomed to men being unpredictable, but Jack Chase is something else. Just moments after surprising her with a rare family ring, he’s suddenly kidnapped by two thugs and driven into darkness. It is then that Alice is confronted by a sharply dressed stranger who calls himself White Rabbit, and who promises to know more about Jack than she. Where Alice follows him is through the liquid glass of an ornate mirror. Where she lands is Wonderland, an outlandish underground city of twisted towers and parapets, staircases conceived in a Dali dream, and an otherworldly purple horizon. Soon, the word’s out that Wonderland has its most prized captive. It seems Alice has the ring that controls the looking glass—the key to the power of the Queen of Hearts. It was mad folly for her son Jack to give it to a girl he barely knew. But Jack had his reasons. Discovering them is up to Alice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alice of legend December 22, 2009
Format:DVD
There's a girl in a blue dress, a Queen of Hearts, and a a magical looking glass that whisks the heroine into a surreal Wonderland.

But beyond that, don't expect this SyFy miniseries to have much in common with Lewis Carroll's classic novel, "Alice in Wonderland." Instead, "Alice" is a whole different animal -- a deliciously gritty sci-fi adventure filled with action, romance, monsters psychedelic horrors, and a revolution against a drug-peddling queen. It's a little silly, but still immensely entertaining.

Alice's (Caterina Scorsone) dinner date with her boyfriend Jack (Philip Winchester) falls apart when he offers her an heirloom ring. When she chases after him, she sees him being dragged off by some suit-wearing thugs -- and promptly trips THROUGH a looking glass. Of course she ends up in Wonderland, a world of grimy urban ruins and art deco casinos. And it's ruled by the Queen of Hearts (Kathy Bates), a ruthless tyrant who keeps her populace drugged with emotions from kidnapped "oysters" (ordinary humans).

Alice ends up following the eccentric Hatter (Andrew-Lee Potts), who offers to take her to the Resistance -- but when they get there, they discover that Jack's ring is actually the Stone of Wonderland (which powers the transdimensional Looking Glass). Since everybody in Wonderland wants the Stone, Hatter and Alice end up on the run from both the Resistance and the Queen's assassin Mad March. Alice is still determined to rescue Jack and return home, but she soon finds that her boyfriend isn't quite what she thought -- and that one of her loved ones is the Queen's brainwashed slave.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Alice, LOVE Andrew Lee's Hatter even more!! December 8, 2009
By A. Lee
Verified Purchase
I never really got into the whole Alice in Wonderland story, to tell the truth, I was actually terrified with the story as a child. Anyways Alice is a wonderful and refreshing take on the well known classic and I was shocked at how much I enjoyed it. I watched it at about midnight, skimming through the channels until I came across it and for some reason I was hooked at once. Alice is portrayed as a kickass fighting heroine, that's quite different and the story/plot was so exciting and new, I don't want to give it away but there is some interesting bits added to the original.

Summary: So this Alice is a martial arts butt-kicker. She meets Jack who slips her a ring and once Jack is abducted Alice follows, thus leading to her falling down the "rabbit hole" or the looking glass. Once there she meets Hatter who wants to help her find her way home. As she learns more about Wonderland and their emotion-extracting economy, her life becomes endangered when the Queen of Hearts orders for Alice's capture. The Queen ultimately wants the ring Alice recieved from Jack to power the looking glass. Along Alice's journey to find Jack, she also meets The White Knight who accompanys the duo to the Casino(where the captured humans are extracted) while also running away from the Queen's men: White Rabbit and the Suits. Quite an adventure.

Okay back to characters: I must say the acting is top-notch, so great for SyFy to get these incredibly talented actors. First Caterina Scorsone as Alice is amazing and this is my first time watching her, but I am really impressed by her acting. The White Knight(Matt Frewer who is another great star who works perfectly in Alice) is there for some comical parts, and very fun to watch too. Kathy Bates as the Queen, I get what I expected knowing her previous work.

4.0 out of 5 stars SyFy "Alice" December 27, 2009
Format:DVD
This "Alice" is certainly NOT for the children of the household! This is not a tarted-up Disney movie. There is violence, drug references, war, intrigue, abductions and a lot more you really don't want to have to explain to your younger offspring. (Or have them have to explain to YOUR parents.)
I was truly awed by the show. The physical sets were very well-crafted and remarkably realistic in the CGI scenes. The story was gripping and very plausible for a fantasy tale. The many references to "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland" were often very subtle (see how many of you can find the "Mock Turtle" on the first try... (hint: look for a little lady and a BIG gun!)). Some were patently obvious and unnecessary to drive the story. Others were a name-only reference to a character from the stories, like the Dodo.
There were some unanswered questions and some plot holes in the story line, but the story moves so fast you may not even notice until after the program is over.
All in all, "Alice" is very entertaining and worth owning. I enjoyed it so much that I pre-ordered it the moment I found out the release date!

5.0 out of 5 stars HATTER December 9, 2009
I'm using my boyfriend's account to post this review. He's a big Alice In Wonderland fan. It was never really my thing. Much like with Wizard of Oz I always got upset as a kid that it took them so long to get home. I grudgingly agreed to watch this movie with him but ended up enjoying it way more than he did. The main reason being the character Hatter. As another reviewer said, "The whole cast is great but the one person that MADE it for me is Andrew Lee Potts." His Hatter was quirky and adorable. You like him from the moment he's introduced on screen and you fall in love with him as the story unfolds. I love the romance aspect that was thrown in. I can't wait until this is released on DVD. In the meantime it will remain on my DVR lol.
