Okay. First things first. For any Sam Raimi fans out there worried that he's done a Burton, you can breathe out now. No need to panic. Alice In Wonderland has been laid down as some kind of marker for Oz The Great And Powerful to follow. Children's classic, genius auteur, 3D. Check, check, check.
But if Burton's billion dollar behemoth veered a little too close to being ... you know, for kids, then Raimi manages to conjure up a bit of magic himself. His Oz The Great And Powerful treads a delicate tightrope, part blockbuster eye candy, part gleeful riposte to sanitised Disney tales. And for those who grew up on the Raimi oeuvre, it's even better.
