Darkness reigns in the fanciful realm of Wonderland — or Underland, if you prefer — as the Red Queen rules from high atop her ego (and giant head). So too does Tim Burton‘s dark sensibility rule this grand if occasionally grim vision of ALICE IN WONDERLAND.

Otherwise Burton’s film delivers more caricature than character, more splendor than satisfaction, and less heart than it deserves.
