Critic Reviews for Alice in Wonderland

All Critics (266) | Top Critics (46) | Fresh (135) | Rotten (129) | DVD (24)

Its single biggest failing -- an affront to Lewis Carroll and the charms of nonsense literature -- is the fact that it makes sense.

Houston Chronicle
Top Critic

The true three-dimensionality here is the old-fashioned kind -- Wasikowska's fully rounded performance. Throughout the technical razzle-dazzle, we keep returning to the pallor of that face, the gravity in those eyes.

A visually imaginative fairy tale that suffers slightly from its predictable course but still manages to wow at all the crucial moments.

Burton and Disney have found a glorious way to interpret fairy tales and fantasies.

Much of Carroll's magical nonsense remains, even if Burton's film wobbles at the gates of anarchy and ends up being a more average affair than many might expect.

Top Critic

The movie is seeped in distinctive visuals, lavish photography and set design that recalls the wondrous texture of "Harry Potter." What, then, held them back on taking further creative opportunities with the story?

Full Review… | June 29, 2013

This latest rendition of "Alice in Wonderland" is a journey worth taking mainly to see Tim Burton's imagination at play. The story is so well-known, but you haven't seen it done quite in this way before.

Time to take some of Lewis Carroll's advice, Tim: eat me.

It's the kind of movie that should inspire you to get a Blu-ray player and hi-def television if you don't have them already.

7M Pictures

Storytelling has never been Burton's strong suit and his weakness is here compounded by a desire to somehow squeeze Carroll's topsy-turvy, logical-illogical tales into a teen-friendly, Disney-approved, big-screen adventure.

That Johnny Depp's take on the Mad Hatter is comparatively one of the more subdued performances tells you just how out there Tim Burton's film is.

Wobbles along as average entertainment garnered from a great book.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

For all of the wild, 3D effects, eccentric characters and sly nods to its source material, the highlights ... are the performances of his two favorite actors--Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter.

Lewis Carroll is bent over a table, tears filling beneath his eyes. Something in your heart breaks. Your childhood, perhaps?

Full Review… | March 1, 2011

Burton's imagination never lets up ... and while those 3-D effects do seem to fade into the background, you can feed your head on his Wonderland for the entire trip.

More Disney than Tim Burton.

Full Review… | January 3, 2011

Despite stunning visuals and fine performances Alice in Wonderland never really goes anywhere. Or rather it goes somewhere we've all been before.

Full Review… | December 28, 2010

An endless series of tedious set pieces, flat characterization, lethargic visual effects, a waste of raw talent...

Cinema Crazed

Even though Burton is unable to channel much suspense or awe, the film is a sumptuous visual delight. It all adds up to a mildly enjoyable adventure, sadly lacking in ambition.

Full Review… | October 21, 2010

A bland adventure fantasy, Alice in Wonderland may be pretty to look at, yet offers nothing more than Tim Burton's now generic and uninspired brand of filmmaking.

Matt's Movie Reviews

The imposition of a fairytale quest structure turns the surrealist wanderings (and wonderings) of a free-associating dreamer into a brusque crash-zoom, as Alice hurtles towards her appointment on the good-versus-evil battlefield.

The Alice books gained fame for being totally unconventional, and you decide to make a totally conventional movie out of them?

Window to the Movies

Could have been called Alice in Blunderland, Burton's latest is inferior to the childish Disney feature in nearly every way.

A fun film with awesome visual design. I think that over time detractors will mellow and Burton's Alice will become a classic. Bandersnatches and Futterwackens not withstanding.

Audience Reviews for Alice in Wonderland


Classic Tim Burton with great acting. Everyone in this movie looked like they were having so much fun doing it and it showed. We saw this in Digital 3d and to be honest the 3d may not even have been needed. It looks like digital screening of this would suffice. It would be a wonderful visual feast.

I liked the plot. The movie made more sense than Lewis Carroll's book. I didn't mind the computer graphics or the acting.

Such a disappointment! Tim Burton just slaughtered the story and the 3-d was horrible! Johnny Depp was alright, same goes for Mia Wasikowska. Just a waste of my money and a large hole of hate growing for Tim Burton! The story had no heart and the over exaggeration in CGI wasnt helping.

This is one of the hardest films for me to confirm whether its a good film or not. Firstly, the name is false advertised; I belileve it was going to be a fresh remake, instead its a unnecessary sequel to the books. Secondly, the acting cast was a hit and miss. While Mia Wasikowska makes a unique protagonist, Johnny Depp is once again placed into a character which doesn't fit him. There are times when he sound more like 'Captain Jack Sparrow'. Helena Bonham Carter does make a strong villian as the Red Queen. However, the key successes for this film are its stunning effects and its voice cast. From Alan Rickman, to Stephen Fry, Timothy Spall, Barbara Windsor and Michael Sheen. The positives and negatives are so balanced, I wouldn't say its Tim Burton's best, but its definetely worth a try.
