Summary

After spotting a certain white rabbit, Alice (Wasikowska) tumbles down a hole after him. Reunited with her friends the Mad Hatter (Depp), the Cheshire Cat (Fry) and others, Alice realises that only she can end the Red Queen’s (Bonham Carter) reign of terror. 

Is The Plot Interesting?

Alice In Wonderland tells us the same story that we all know. It doesn’t do this in a different way or offer a new perspective on the story, but rather gives it a fresher and more modern look.

Is The Acting Good?

I loved watching Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter. He really dives straight into the character and doesn’t hold back. Mia Wasikowska also does a great job at portraying Alice Kingsleigh.

Is The Directing Good?

I’ve always liked Tim Burton’s directing style (even if I haven’t liked all his movies) so it came as no surprise to me that I found this movie to have good directing and good execution.

Is The Cinematography Good?

Visually the movie is very effective. The cinematography does exactly what it needed to do, which was to engage with the audience and to get their attention to stay fully on the movie.

Is It Worth Watching?

I enjoyed Alice In Wonderland for what it was… a different take on the Alice In Wonderland stories. Ultimately, Alice In Wonderland has great performances and even better visuals.

3/5

Sometimes I believe in as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
