Not the level I would have expected from Johnny Depp and Tim Burton

What a dissapointment! Who cares that Tim Burton Directed this movie...so many politically correct reviews just because it was Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. With their experience and talent, I hold them to a higher level then this nonsense. Not an Alice in Wonderland story. An interpretation on the coat-tails of the real story. Basically a nonsensical movie. Depp's performance and accent fluctuated between his Pirates character, Willi Wonka, Sleepy Hollow character, etc. He was not consistant at all. Lots of hype and big bucks spent on marketing with little quality or substance.

Is It Any Good?

Alice has fallen down the rabbit hole again and needs your help making her way through the bewildering world of Wonderland. Enchanting music and a pretty 2D girl who navigates obstacles with the help of the Mad Hatter and other friends make this a compelling adventure. Whether it's worth $5 or exposing kids to all the movie ads is debatable.
