Nearly a century and a half after Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland first acquainted readers with the peculiar inhabitants of author Lewis Carroll’s imagination, filmmaking technology finally has the tools capable of properly recreating the twisted world on the big screen. Tim Burton’s creation is not supposed to be an adaption of the original but more of a sequel in which the adventurous Alice, the daughter of English aristocrats, takes a more passive role and seems to simply guide the viewer through the enchanting world which he has created. Even Johnny Depp doesn’t seem to shine, and the only exception to this out of the whole cast is Helena Bonham Carter, as the screeching Red Queen.) Unfortunately, the storyline is also very vague and it is hard to describe what it is really all about. Although it is visually pleasing and entertaining, it may not be all you expected.
