I was quite surprised at the backlash that this film received. I quite liked it. I've noticed that most of the people complaining are traditional Alice fans, who don't approve of the changes that Burton made to the film. I, personally, found it to be an interesting spin on the series. The quirkiness and charm of the film is enough to redeem itself for the fairly cliche plot. The main character, an older Alice, is a great role model. Not just for girls, but for everyone. When she rebels against social customs and expectations of her character, she is setting a great example for kids. It's a simple message: Just Be Yourself. Okay, so the film had somewhat of an awkward pace. So Alice's dialogue was fairly contrived and emotionless. But these flaws are easily forgotten when you lose yourself in the film's enchantment. Overall, 7.5/10. It isn't a perfect film, but it combines great ideas from the two quirky minds of Lewis Carroll and Tim Burton to create a film that is both uniquely enchanting and visually appealing.
