Film Review: Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland in 3D

To 3D, or not to 3D, that is the question. The answer? Don’t bother – it doesn’t make much of a difference. When the 3D demonstration trailer throws a rugby ball at the audience, they will duck, but the film itself is not much affected.

Whether to see the film itself? Definitely.

After a lavish London launch whereby part of the Selfridges department store was transformed into Wonderland itself, the big screen launch of Lewis Carroll’s literary classic was highly anticipated.

Johnny Depp delivered yet another solid representation of a doolally eccentric – the Mad Hatter nearly stealing the show from a rather wooden Alice. Tim Burton managed to resist turning the fantasy into another ghoulish enterprise and retained much of the innocence and fancy of a child’s dream.

Blackadder’s Miranda Richardson may well want her Queen’s voice back from Helena Bonham Carter’s version of the Red Queen, but the children in the audience would be unlikely to notice. Stephen Fry lent his purring tones to the slightly unnerving Cheshire Cat and Matt Lucas doubled up as Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Anne Hathaway missed the mark slightly as the ethereal white queen but will most certainly begin a trend for dark brown lipstick this Winter.

The all-star cast teamed with a veteran director made a true spectacle of this topsy-turvey movie. For an entertaining movie with the family – this is a sure fire hit. Go, if only to hear Johnny Depp’s delivery of Lewis Carroll’s tongue-twisting poems.
