But Depp's performance is richer and more coherent than the film itself-a rather laborious narrative that careens through a string of set pieces without transporting us.

This joyless adaptation of a beloved story comes up short in almost every way.

Despite some intriguing visual aspects, "Alice" proves to be quite dull, unable to overcome an internal battle with the film's overall tone.

It's seriously beautiful at intervals that command attention. There's a war theme in it that's pursued with surprising gravity.

If Burton and other filmmakers want to empower girls, perhaps, just once, they might show them how characteristics other than physical strength and agility are valuable.

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.
