Alice in Wonderland 3D Movie Review

Another slightly weird and wacky Tim Burton film. Depp slips in and out of Captain Jack/Willy Wonka and his new ginger haired creation the Mad Hatter. The effects are good and Bomham-Carter's large head is very effective with her small body. The 3D effect isn't particularly outstanding, with some scenes of monologue just looking flat, the full 3D seems to be saved for the more obvious action scenes. The story itself is a re-imagining of the book, with snippets of original story showing through, building up to a big fight with the Jabberwocky. However it seems to take too long to get there and drags slightly in the middle, with some of the usual trudging from A to B. It's weird as a kids film and a bit too slow for adults, luckily the 3D gimmick probably saves this film.
