Starring: Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham-Carter, Crispin Glover
Director: Tim Burton
Well the movie can’t go very wrong when the kids tell you after the movie that they loved it can it? Well let me begin with what they did right….The Cheshire cat looked great compared to the one the creepy looking one I grew up watching and so did Twiddle Dum and Twiddle Dee. In fact I loved practically all the colourful characters and costumes except the Mad Hatter himself. Why? Because he looked more ghoulish then he did mad! And to worsen the situation, was Johnny Depp’s inaudible heavily accented dialogue!
No surprise that Tim Burton’s version would not include the fun memorable riddles such as “Which King Of England wore the largest shoes?” However I must say the 3D sets and CGI is almost breathtaking and flawlessly sewn in well with the human characters. Also in my opinion, the Red Queen was magnificently played by Helena Bonham-Carter. No other character comes remotely close.
Overall I would rate it a 7 out of 10…and that is being generous!
