Alice in Wonderland (2010) - Rotten Tomatoes

Alice in Wonderland (2010)



Critic Consensus: Tim Burton's Alice sacrifices the book's minimal narrative coherence -- and much of its heart -- but it's an undeniable visual treat.

Critic Reviews for Alice in Wonderland

All Critics (264) | Top Critics (45)

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?

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.

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.

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.

Not Burton's best. The visuals completely overwhelm the story and characters to the point that it is rather distracting. The story is also way too straightforward for Alice in Wonderland. The performances are fine, but no one really stands out. Depp was the driving force of the hype and I was a little disappointed that his character really wasn't much. Him and Burton have created magic before, but this is not one of those times. It can be entertaining for sure, but it's forgettable and certainly one of the lesser Burton collaborations. Hopefully the sequel can build off of this and deliver a truly wacky story.

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