Alice (Mia Wasikowska) makes her return to Wonderland and back in time to save the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp).
The predecessor to this film wasn’t that great. Lacked a deep story, but was visually stunning. This is pretty much the same as that. The visuals are always spectacular in these movies. Wasikowska is the bright spot in the cast, as everyone is just mailing it in. She makes these movies watchable.
You know where we’re going from the jump. There are no crazy twists, no interesting developments. Director James Bobin sets us down a road and we don’t take any exits.
Kids will eat this movie up, I went with a friend and a kid was in front of us. He had to be 11 or 12 years old. He was oohing and awing throughout and was on the edge of his seat. That’s who this film is for, it isn’t for me, I guess they hooked their target here. I can’t fault them for that.
