Val Kilmer ("The Salton Sea") fails to manifest the eccentric character of notorious porn legend Johnny "Wadd" Holmes in this artful but unbalanced dramatization of the gruesome 1981 Laurel Canyon murders that Holmes was implicated in committing.

A&E Investigative Reports would have done the story far more justice than this watered down silly film ever could.

*Violent and blaring ... a vibrant bit of tabloid trash infotainment, a guilty pleasure for those with a taste for bittersweet candy.

This film, however, will fade away quicker than Jenna Jameson when she hits thirty-five.

Bolstered by its fiercely assured script and direction, Wonderland's cast soars, with Kilmer perhaps doing his career-best work.

It's an in-your-face and exhausting portrayal of life gone bad, played out by a cast of actors all on the top of their game.

looks good, sounds great, and essentially it's just one long party until the debauchery inevitably comes to collect its tax

Wonderland remains too subjective and doesn't probe deep enough.

Nem mesmo o excepcional elenco consegue levar o espectador a conhecer um pouco melhor aqueles personagens. Ainda assim, o filme tem seus momentos.

...real bottom-of-the-barrel stuff, a scummy story about scummy people.

Wonderland is completely hollow and devoid of purpose... uncompelling, unorganized and unexciting.

You might actually anticipate learning something about the real JohnnyHolmes and his vocational choices. Think again.

A few actors make momentary impressions, yet most are kept in the shadows, as hard to make out as this movie's ultimate intentions.

To enjoy the narrative remixing, you have to cut through an awful lot of postproduction hooey.

Sometimes Wonderland does make you wonder why you're wasting your time with these losers. But there's also a lot here that stays with you.
