Review: Alice in Wonderland (movie)

The new Alice in Wonderland movie is not terrible, but it is not that great either. The basic premise is that 13 years after her original adventures, as recorded by Lewis Carroll, Alice falls down a rabbit hole and returns to Wonderland, finding it a much darker place, and must fight to save it from the clutches of the Red Queen. Somehow this became a boring movie.

All of the characters except one are rather flat and uninteresting, and you don’t care about any of them. The sole exception is Helena Bonham Carter’s Red Queen, who is the only character that seems to have any depth and is interesting to watch.

Overall, the movie is just more Tim Burton (everything kind of goofy-creepy and corpsey) and more Danny Elfman (oopa-OOPA-oopa-OOPA).

And yes, in case you heard, there is a pretty dumb breakdancing scene at the end.
