Tumble down the rabbit hole with Alice for a fantastical new adventure from Walt Disney Pictures and Tim Burton. Inviting and magical, Alice In Wonderland is an imaginative new twist on one of the most beloved stories of all time. Alice (Mia Wasikowska), now 19 years old, returns to the whimsical world she first entered as a child and embarks on a journey to discover her true destiny. This Wonderland is a world beyond your imagination and unlike anything you ve seen before. The extraordinary characters you ve loved come to life richer and more colorful than ever. There s the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), the White Queen (Anne Hathaway), the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter), the White Rabbit (Michael Sheen) and more. A triumphant cinematic experience Alice In Wonderland is an incredible feast for your eyes, ears and heart that will captivate audiences of all sizes.
Tim Burton was born to bring Alice in Wonderland to the big screen. Ironically, his version of the Victorian text plays more like The Wizard of Oz than a Lewis Carroll adaptation. On the day of her engagement party, the 19-year-old Alice (a nicely understated Mia Wasikowska) is lead by a white-gloved rabbit to an alternate reality that looks strangely familiar--she's been dreaming about it since she was 6 years old. Stranded in a hall of doors, she sips from a potion that makes her shrink and nibbles on a cake that makes her grow. Once she gets the balance right, she walks through the door that leads her to Tweedledum and Tweedledee (Matt Lucas), the Dormouse (Barbara Windsor), the Blue Caterpillar (Alan Rickman), and the Cheshire Cat (a delightful Stephen Fry), who inform her that only she can free them from the wrath of the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter channeling Bette Davis) by slaying the Jabberwocky. To pull off the feat, she teams up with the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp in glam-rock garb), rebel bloodhound Bayard (Timothy Spall), and Red's sweet sister, the White Queen (Anne Hathaway in goth-rock makeup). While Red welcomes Alice with open arms, she plans an execution for the hat-maker when he displeases her ("Off with his head!"). Drawing from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, Burton creates a candy-colored action-adventure tale with a feminist twist. If it drags towards the end, his 3-D extravaganza still offers a trippy good time with a poignant aftertaste. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

I know a lot of people who really dislike this version. It’s definitely not my favorite, but you have to admit, Tim Burton’s vision of Wonderland is visually stunning. The art direction is absolutely gorgeous, and so much fun to look at. Every time I watch it, I see something new that I’d never noticed before.
The conflict here is quite interesting; because it’s something of a sequel, it’s all about Alice stepping up and becoming a heroine, rather than simply an observer. The idea that she believed in dreams when she was little but has lost those beliefs as she’s grown up is a very relevant theme. Alice has to figure who and what she wants to be; this is the main crisis she is dealing with at home, having just been proposed to by someone she could never marry, though everyone expects her to accept.
Alice is played by Mia Wasikowska, and honestly, she’s probably one of my least favorite Alice’s. I loved her Jane Eyre, but she just doesn’t seem to work here. She has a look that is classic Tim Burton, so it’s no wonder why she was cast, but she’s quite robotic for most of the film. Johnny Depp is, of course, brilliant as the Mad Hatter, skipping between light-hearted and serene Hatter to a truly mad, intense and angry Hatter. Helena Bonham Carter is terrifying and odd as the Red Queen, while Anne Hathaway is possibly even more bizarre as her sister the White Queen.
The Jabberwock is not just a poem Alice recites; here he is a monstrous beast that Alice must defeat to save Underland. This scene alone is creepy and slightly nightmarish and knocks this movie up and out of the kids range (if other things about it hadn’t already). Tim Burton’s Alice is not one I would recommend showing your small children. Everything has an eerie and nefarious air to it, and it’s a much more grown up tale than what I imagine Lewis Carroll had in mind.

Depp brings an interesting interpretation to the Mad Hatter, and while his performance seemed a little restrained (both for him and for what this movie could have been), he also brings magic to this film.
It's not quite "great for the entire family," unless your children are 10 years old or older. (Younger ones may not understand what's going on in some scenes, and little children might actually be frightened by some of them.)
The "big head" and other physical distortions was amusing, but barely held up as a running sight gag. It seemed almost like filler for a story that needed more substance.
Alice... I'm not sure if it was the casting or the direction, but I found it difficult to care what happened to her. Frankly, she was pretty to look at, but seemed rather vapid. I didn't see much character arc there.
Tweedledee and Tweedledum were charming, and probably could have had more screen time.
The White Queen was confusing. I didn't dislike her, but I didn't like her, either. Her character didn't make sense... but not in the charming, "nonsensical" context that Carroll had provided in his stories.
The Red Queen did seem nonsensical and delightfully warped. Helena Bonham Carter can shine in any role, and I think this one -- between the script and the makeup -- probably challenged her more than most roles she's played. I wish we'd seen more of her character's eccentricities.
Depp's role was enigmatic, but something seemed lacking; I'm not sure if he was distracted, or not given enough to work with, but -- whatever the issue -- he did a very good job in this role.. just not what it could have been.
I know this review sounds as if I didn't like the movie, but I did. It just wasn't as good as it could have been, and not quite up to the standards I expect from Disney, Burton, and the cast. If I'd watched it with lower expectations, I might be giving this a better review.
On balance, this movie is intriguing enough to be worth watching, if only as a preparation for the 2016 sequel... which I hope will be more dazzling, stylish, and whimsical. This movie didn't quite achieve what I'd expected, in those terms, but it came close enough that I can say I liked it and I'm glad I purchased the DVD.
