The latest adaptation of the Lewis Carroll classic 'Alice in Wonderland' -- as seen through the eyes of singular director Tim Burton -- had all the makings of a fantastical treat. An amalgamation of both Carroll's 'Alice In Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking Glass,' Burton's vision follows a 19-year-old Alice (Australian Mia Wasikowska from 'In Treatment') as she heads back to Wonderland -- or as it's known in this movie, Underland -- to escape the clutches of an unwanted marriage proposal.

The movie boasts eye-popping visuals, 3D effects and a stellar supporting cast, which includes chameleon and frequent Burton collaborator Johnny Depp as a crazy-eyed Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the big-headed Red Queen, Stephen Fry as the Cheshire Cat, Crispin Glover as the Knave of Hearts, Alan Rickman as the Caterpillar and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen.

Curiously, not all the critics were charmed by Burton's big-studio take or its 3D milieu. Check out the reviews and then let us know what you think.
