Critic Reviews for Alice in Wonderland
Disney's frantic take on Lewis Carroll may lack much of the book's illogical charm, but it does contain one of the great proto-psychedelic sequences in cinema.
What's really disappointing is the undistinguished animation: the film looks and plays more like the Disney shorts than the Disney features.
Walt Disney has gone a long way towards tightening the leisurely, haphazard adventure of Alice in the wonderland of her imagination.
If you are not too particular about the images of Carroll and Tenniel, if you are high on Disney whimsey and if you'll take a somewhat slow, uneven pace, you should find this picture entertaining.
Alice's world is far loonier and mad - and has more teeth. It was a fine departure from the fairy tales of Cinderella and Snow White.
Audience Reviews for Alice in Wonderland
The marvelous surrealistic design with beautiful vibrant colors and curious geometric shapes that even seems to borrow from German Expressionism are sadly not enough to compensate for the film's excess of songs and glaring lack of focus, given its frustratingly episodic structure.
Though ultimately not the most memorable Disney experience, Alice in Wonderland is a charming, visually stunning film that--while dated--is nonetheless enjoyable.
This is how the story of Alice in wonderland SHOULD be done Tim Burton.
That aside, Alice in Wonderland is probably one of Disney's most creative animated films to date just due to how crazy they could go with tis story seeing how nothing makes sense in this nonsensical animated world of Wonderland. Alice is probably one of my favorite animated film leads and the side characters are some of Disney's best, mainly the Mad Hatter and March Hare even though they aren't even in the film for fifteen minutes. My favorite character however is the Cheshire Cat, not just for how Sterling Holloway portrays him, but also how you never know what side he is on, if he's a good guy or a bad guy, and I really enjoy characters that are done like that. The music is also very good for the film, my favorite being the story of the carpenter and walrus just for how strange it is.
