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.

Wobbles along as average entertainment garnered from a great book.

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?

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.

...an endeavor that's big on spectacle yet small on plot...

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

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

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.

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.

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?

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.
