Disney’s (Tim Burton’s) Alice in Wonderland

Alice returns to Wonderland and discovers a world under the tyrannical rule of The Red Queen.

A sequel to the classic Disney animation, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland is a surreal mess of a film and a blend of live action and, at times, over liberal use of CGI.

The performances are strong and entirely in keeping with Burton’s vision – Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and a raft of familiar British faces make up a cast that is occasionally mired by a incoherent script that has some bright moments but mainly revels in the surreal and sublime.

Possibly inaccessible to young audiences, not dark enough for mature audiences, it’s difficult to see what Disney were going for with Alice in Wonderland.
