Alice In Wonderland is one of those iconic stories that most kids growing up in the western world knows and I’d say would love. Not just because of its great characters and an interesting world, but even as a kid you knew the whole thing was some weird ‘trippy’ dream-like experience unlike any other kids story you had been told.
As an adult it’s still an amazing story to behold and strikes you even more when you realise it was written in 1865! So when Tim Burton put out his film version of the classic story it was always going to be something special.
This film looked simply stunning! I saw it in 3D, which I feel isn’t necessary as this wasn’t in the scope of an Avatar, but 3D or not, this was an amazing world brought to life by Burton and was as magical as you would expect of the world of Wonderland.
With great performances from the whole cast and even some fairly violent scenes for a Disney film, it just felt exactly what a modern take on this world should be. With it taking huge money at the box office around the world you can safely say there will be a sequel for this film in the near future.
8.5 out of 10 from me!!!
