Review - Alice In Wonderland

The movie Alice in Wonderland is different from the book. In the children's book by Lewis Carroll, Alice is a small girl who is bored and is often in a dream world. She dreams as if she is talking to her sister on a riverbank and notices a white rabbit and follows it. Then we know the story what happened. But in the movie, Alice is a 19-year-old and she has lost her father. People are insisting her to get married to Hamish - the son of her father's business partner. When Alice returns to Wonderland she has to accept the legend that she is person who slays the Jabberwocky on the Frabjous Day. She meets all her fantasy characters - The White rabbit, Dormouse, Dodo bird, Tweedles, Abosolomon(Caterpillar), Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter played by Jonny Depp. The Hatter explains Alice that after Alice had left Wonderland, the Red Queen had taken over Wonderland and banished the White Queen. So, Alice (as the White Queen is so kind and hates fighting) needs to fight against the Red Queen and kill the Jabberwocky.

Alice in Wonderland is my cup of tea. With all those talking animals, queens and to add the 3D factor was great. The Red queen's character is funny even thou she is evil - using the pigs as the footrests, hangs out people who are different like her, plays crochet using a hedgedog as a ball and the one where she tries out the hats made by Hatter. If anyone is wondering who the Red Queen(Helena Bonham Carter) character is, she is none other than Bellatrix from HP. Anne Hathaway has overreacted in some scenes and in most she stuck to her gracious queen character. The scene where the White Queen(Anne Hathaway) prepares a portion for Alice to shrink was yukky. I loved the Hatter character maybe because it was played by Jonny Depp and his Fudderwupping dance at the end.

People who love animation and 3D movies, it is a must watch for you all!!!
