Hollywood Reporter - 02/25/2010
"Burton has delivered a subversively witty, brilliantly cast, whimsically appointed dazzler that also manages to hit all the emotionally satisfying marks."
Variety - 02/25/2010
"[With] moments of delight, humor and bedazzlement....To be sure, the design, effects, makeup and technical work is of a high order."
Chicago Sun-Times - 03/03/2010 3 stars out of 4 -- "Burton is above all a brilliant visual artist, and his film is a pleasure to regard..."
USA Today - 03/05/2010 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[E]ngaging and amusing....As Alice, Mia Wasikowska is pitch perfect, looking the part and capturing her sense of innocence.'
Box Office - 02/26/2010 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "Director Tim Burton returns to his 'A' game with this magnificent, visually stunning movie that is not only one of his best, it is indeed a wonder."
Wall Street Journal - 03/05/2010
"Every scene brings something new and remarkable....It's more gothic than Victorian and slightly tinctured with danger, but fully equipped with the sort of exuberant action that sits well in movie theaters..."
Washington Post - 03/03/2010 3 stars out of 4 -- "Burton finely balances excess and restraint to create an absorbing, visually rich world of his very own."
Movieline - 03/03/2010
"Burton uses the dank, claustrophobic aesthetic to an interesting effect....Bonham Carter is delectable as the wicked, capricious Red Queen..."
Rolling Stone - 03/18/2010
"Bonham Carter gets laughs, whether she's warming her feet on a squealing pig or ordering decapitations like lattes....Depp is a marvel as the Hatter..."
Empire - 05/01/2010 3 stars out of 5 -- "[R]ealised exquisitely, with spectacular 3-D, a haunting design for Wonderland, a seamless meeting of live action with animation, and a great deal of twisted charm."
Sight and Sound - 05/01/2010
"The resulting film works perfectly as a child-friendly fantasy..."
Director and subject matter make for a perfect marriage in Tim Burton's version of the Lewis Carroll classic. ALICE IN WONDERLAND stars frequent Burton collaborator Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, DEFIANCE's Mia Wasikowska as Alice, and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen.
