I have always been a fan of bizarre, crazy, surreal films. I was excited to watch this film but got so disappointed. It wasn’t as powerful or as bizarre as I hoped it to be. There’s something lacking in the film that I can’t quite put my finger on. There was no connection for me. Watching two birds fighting is much more engaging than this film.
To be honest, the only thing I enjoyed watching in the film is the Red Queen (played by Helena Bonham Carter). She was funny and endearing. The White Queen (played by Anne Hathaway) was scary for me. She’s supposed to look angelic and kind but something about her make-up made her look nasty and old. I expected a lot from Johnny Depp but somehow he didn’t deliver, just like the director, Tim Burton.
Such a shame.
I give it 2 tumbling stars.
