Alice? Who the #eck is Alice?

I was quite eager to see this movie. Alice in Wonderland, what a lovely tale to be seen on the big screen in 3D... and by Tim Burton. Can you imagine that? Alice in Wonderland by Tim Burton. Well, if you can, then there won't be any big surprises for you.

This movie is exactly  what you would expect, only maybe a little bit more boring and with Johnny Depp not delivering quite the stellar performance you could expect. Tim Burton fantasy is flying all around with very strange characters and a dark-ish tone everywhere. But there are, of course, a few problems so let's start kicking away:
 - Johnny Depp - His performance is not very convincing, as  his character seems to be  unfortunately lost floating somewhere between the scissors guy and pirate from the carribbean throughout the movie.
 - Alice ... who is Alice actually? They could have picked someone better for the part ...
 - "Are you THE Alice?" question... which makes me wonder once again ... who in the heck's name is this Alice everyone keeps asking about ...
 - The ending of the movie kinda made me LOL ... I don't wanna spoil it but let's just say rough business men are not what they used to be ...

All in all not a bad movie, but I was expecting a little bit better ... mister Tim Burton ... off with his head!
