“All the best people are.”

Within a few minutes of Alice’s subterranean adventure there is a very obvious clue to Tim Burton‘s signature iconography – sharp, spiked, dark, mysterious things! It’s good fun and you know you’re in for some strange but colourful characters. There is a very obvious abundance of computers animation but the mix with real actors is so well done you get involved that it’s all accepted and the weird is even anticipated.

Story moves quickly, actors have wonderful timing and Helena is spot on as a demented queen. Johnny does a johnny and suites the hatter role perfectly of course. Mia is gorgeous in a twenty year old, pale faced, slightly stubborn way and she’s a good, strong Alice who, when she’s armoured up, looks kinda like a cross between Joan of Arc and some queen Elizabeth of England! (notably there’s an image of a Henry 8th figure on one of the walls of a castle… too deep? Yeah, probably.)

Yep, good fun well put together. Think a problem is that it feels a bit short but then maybe I just like thks stuff so much I don’t want it to stop?
