Alice In Wonderland Movie Review: Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp Show Some Great Acting Skills
In the newly released 3D Alice in Wonderland movie, Tim Burton takes us back into the rabbit hole .
The movie is based on Lewis Carol’s Alice novels and has a few twists here and there making it different from the original version. Burton’s latest film extends the story to something we have never seen before and is full of life and surprises.
The cast includes “In Treatment” star Mia Wasikowska as Alice Kingsley, with ‘Pirates of the Caribbean” hottie Johnny Depp quiet aptly as the Mad Hatter, and “Pricess Diaries'” Anne Hathaway as the White Queen and also Helena Bonham- Carter.
In the movie, Alice accidentally returns to Wonderland which is now known as “Underland”, and she has no recollection of her previous trip. She has the task of defeating the dragon-like beast, the Jabberwocky and is lured here by th paranoid rabbit (Michael Sheen’s voice)
What follows is a 3D spectacle – thanks to Tim Burton- that takes the movie to a whole new level of creativity. Although it has been changed and is considered ‘merely’ an “Alice in Wonderland” movie, it is definitely a must watch taking into consideration the time and colour invested in it as well as the brilliant performance of Mia Wasikowska as Alice and Johnny Depp as the Mad hatter.
