Alice in Wonderland


Alice in Wonderland

Critics 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 (270) | Top Critics (48)

  • "Curiouser and curiouser," says Alice in Tim Burton's latest, and for the first time I don't believe her.

    Mar 5, 2010 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • Its single biggest failing -- an affront to Lewis Carroll and the charms of nonsense literature -- is the fact that it makes sense.

    Mar 5, 2010 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Mar 5, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • No knockouts here. No tkos, either.

Audience Reviews for Alice in Wonderland

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.

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.

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.
