Alice in Wonderland

Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd) seems the perfect director to bring Lewis Carrol's trippy children's fantasy to life. A combination of live-action and computer animation is used to tell the story of a young girl named Alice (Australian newcomer Mia Wasikowska), who falls down a rabbit hole into a strange world full of strange characters.

Those characters include Johnny Depp (in his sixth collaboration with Burton) as the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Little Britain's Matt Lucas as both Tweedledee and Tweedledum and Crispin Glover as Stayne – Knave of Hearts.

Also screening in 3D at select theatres.

For all its clever design, beguiling creatures and witty actors, the picture feels far more conventional than it should; it's a Disney film illustrated by Burton, rather than a Burton film that happens to be released by Disney.

A fantastical romp that proves every bit as transporting as that movie about the blue people of Pandora, his "Alice" is more than just a gorgeous 3D sight to behold.

It's not just because of fancy 3D computer graphics that Tim Burton's Alice and Wonderland is the closest to what Lewis Carroll saw when he wrote the book. While no children's classic could be better suited to a storm of pop-out imagery - a puff of the Cheshire Cat's smoke in your face, dodge that hedgehog croquet ball - the effects enhance, rather than make, the film.

Sadly Lewis lite and not without flaws but this is as Burtonesque as one could wish for, a real treat for fans of his twisted imagination and great British character actors.

The costume's are great but story is not clear. Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter is very questioning, his voice goes crazy, scottish then sometimes irish. The story is very disappointing, but costumes are winner but that may not be what we are looking for.

Is it just me or is Tim Burton the most hugely overrated director alive? He peaked with ED WOOD for me and lost it with PLANET OF THE APESH*T. Mind you, I enjoyed SWEENEY TODD, but this? Well, if you dug Burton's CHARLIE & THE CGI FACTORY, you'll love this - and kids may like it too. For me? One star for the CGI splatter - it resembles a tourettes...

I'll give it to the film makers for giving a unique take on the Alice story, but it wasn't enough for me to enjoy the film. The film relied too much on the CG surroundings. Almost all of the performances were dull (especially Alice). Helena Bohman Carter as the Red Queen excluded though.

This movie suffers from Disney-fication. Would have loved to have seen a much darker Tim Burton version. I still enjoyed the movie, as I love the Alice In Wonderland story and Tim Burton's take on it. Best character, in my opinion, is Stayne (played by Crispin Glover), as he is a great mix of the orginal Lewis Carroll character style and the Tim Burton...

completely agree with the flicks review. it really didnt do it for me, and i thought the actors couldve done a lot better and the story line wasnt quite strong enough to give some impact. johnny depp wasnt quite up to his usual standard either, and i love him normally! i agree with others, only in 3d!
