I was able to watch Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and thought of sharing my own opinion with regards to the movie.
Well, the concept of the story is not surprising to all of us since this is based on the classic novel of Lewis Caroll. It’s a story of a young ordinary girl wandered in Wonderland through the help of a rabbit. And you surely know what happened next.
In the movie, Tim Burton has twisted the story and added new elements. Of course, the original concept is still there, but with Burton’s magical touch and genius concept, you can still get a sense of surprise from the movie.
The movie seems like another story of Alice in Wonderland. Although the characters and the concept is based on Lewis Carroll’s famous works, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, Burton was able to tell the story according to his own perspective.
Burton’s new movie features a 19 year-old Alice who’s forgotten all about the Wonderland (or Underland, as Burton rechristens it) of her childhood, preparing for her engagement to a wealthy young lord. Panicking at the moment of truth, Alice flees into the woods, falls down a rabbit hole, and finds herself in a strange world that remembers her, even if she doesn’t remember it. A prophetic scroll reveals that Alice is fated to become the savior of Underland, slaying a terrible beast of legend and freeing the land of the Red Queen’s tyranny.
What makes the movie amazing is that Tim Burton was able to use the characters and the concept of the story in telling his own version. This is another excellent Burton’s masterpiece and the movie is worth watching.
