    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Still, even Disney and a PG rating can't bury Burton's subversive wit. Like Carroll, he's a master at dressing up psychic wounds in fantasy. show more

    San Francisco Chronicle

    Its single biggest failing - an affront to Lewis Carroll and the charms of nonsense literature - is that it makes sense. show more

    When it comes to 3-D visual splendors, give me Wonderland over Pandora any day. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The most surprising thing about Alice in Wonderland is its general lack of surprise. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    If there were truth-in-titling, Burton's movie rightly would be called "Alice in Narnia: With Stops at Disneyland, the Shire, Rohan, Naboo, and Oz." show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    It tends to get lost in its own delirium, which will enchant some and drive others bonkers. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    A fantastical romp that proves every bit as transporting as that movie about the blue people of Pandora, his "Alice" is more than just a gorgeous 3D sight to behold. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    "Alice" plays better as an adult hallucination, which is how Burton rather brilliantly interprets it until a pointless third act flies off the rails. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    The movie won't be for everyone -- it's a little rough for preteens, and it doesn't throw many laughs the audience's way -- but along with "Sweeney Todd," this is Burton's most interesting project in a decade show more

    Burton finely balances excess and restraint to create an absorbing, visually rich world of his very own. show more

    I didn't think this was as good as the original. But, of course, it's a Burton film. It really didn't deserve a PG rating and really bothered me the first time I watched it!

    For those of you who are not afraid to dream and have the courage to pursue them this "Looking through the looking glass" makes them real enough to make them come true. After all ... isn't what this movie about confronting our dragons, slaying them and living the life we always dreamed of living? Anything else would be less than who we are I would think or believe. To all the dreamers in this world I bequest this wonderful movie to who are not afraid to make their dreams come true.

    Not that great of a movie. I mean the dialogue and acting was good, Johnny Depp wasnt bad as the Mad Hatter. The effects were so overrated and rediculously stupid. The wierdness of this movie is what makes it so bad. Tim Burton is a great director, but I think he didn't do as good in this film as he did in Sweeny Todd or Batman or Planet of the Apes. The ending action, war fight between Alice, The Red Queens army, the White Queens army, and the big dragon thing was really bad. The CGI messed up the entire scene, the dragon was cool until it talks which ruined everything. If the dragon wouldnt have talked it wouldve been A LITTLE better. Overall the film was OKAY. Not close to a good movie, an okay movie.
