Terrible script. Lewis Carroll's works are among the most imaginative written, and the way he plays with logic and words is very entertaining. None of this gets to the screen. Why do away with Humpty Dumpty?
Some of the supporting cast acquit themselves well, particularly Stephen Fry as the voice of the Cheshire Cat. Some of Depp's scenes reminded me of Puss n' Boots from Shrek (cue big cute eyes).
The film looks garish, and it's Oscar was for "most art direction" rather than "best". (Inception surely had the best design concepts that year?)
Probably too scary (and too noisy) for young children.
Typical Tim Burton

It was cool, lots of bright colours and great characters. But for me the story wasn't all there. There are some good moments; the hare with any cup, the evil queen through the whole film.
I really can't see any reason to watch it a second time though. I can only speak for myself here but I expected a lot more. Maybe it's meant to be seen in 3D! I didn't like it but the girlfriend loved it!
All I can say is see for yourself. I, however, wouldn't recommend it!

I love watching Tim Burton films, my humour coincides with his. I enjoy the way he tells a story and the quirky things he has in all his films. If you like his films too then i don't think you will be disappointed with this one, i wasn't.
the usual cast of characters are assembled, he's taken libertys with the script to tell the story his way.
Good but not brilliant

Was really looking forward to this and I did enjoy it but it didn't really live up to my expectations. I suppose it was a missed opportunity to do that little bit more. What you have here is a big budget but quite shallow interpretation - disappointing.
