Some of the characters in the movie are based on characters in the 'Alice in Wonderland' book. For Example, Whitey (Danny Dyer) is the White Rabbit. The main character Alice is Alice. Gonzo (Matt King) is the Dodo. Harry Hunt (Nathaniel Parker) is the King and Queen. Hattie (Bronagh Gallagher) is the Mad Hatter. Midge (Steve Haze) is the Doormouse. DJ Felix Chester (Gary Beadle) is the Cheshire Cat. Caterpillar (Paul Kaye) is the Caterpillar. The Duchess (Pam Ferris) is the Duchess who sneezes from the pepper and gives Alice a baby that turns into a pig. Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. The man that Alice sits next to in the 'Drink Me' bar with the long mustache is the Walrus from 'Through the Looking Glass'. See more »
He sounds... fascinating.
I've heard Harry called a lot of F-words. Fascinating's a new one.

Malice in Wonderland kind of intrigued me because the idea and the thought of making a cockney-gangster version of the Alice in Wonderland story was a clever approach as I haven't heard of a version like it so it's unique. It could have went either way, it could have been something original yet different or it could have been a laughable idea that isn't interesting enough. Malice in Wonderland is pretty much the first. The story is clever yet average, it's clever the way they twisted the known tale of Alice but it didn't grip you in the first fifteen minutes, it took me about twenty minutes to actually get into the movie and no movie should take that long to get your attention. Even though it started quite slow, as time went on, it picked up the pace and started to get better. The acting is average, Danny Dyer plays Whitey (which is, as you've probably guessed, the equivalent to the White Rabbit) and yet again Danny Dyer is basically playing himself, as his character is the same as the other characters he's ever played in movies. However, Malice in Wonderland is the best he's ever been. The talent that shines throughout is the gorgeous Maggie Grace who plays the troubled twenty-year-old Alice. The characters were created cleverly to twist the characters in the story and added a hint of personality from the real world. The direction is done well and the cinematography is okay and it's clever the way they did it. I also loved how they borrowed some of the lines from the old movie and added them for the characters and I liked how it stuck to the original Alice in Wonderland plot and twisted it.
Overall, I was on and off about it before watching but after watching, I ended up liking it. It's an above-average movie and I enjoyed it. It's such a brilliant translation and you would like this movie if you liked Alice in Wonderland.
