I never minded the re-imagining of Alice in Wonderland, especially as Tim Burton was honest about doing it. It was fun. It was true to the characters as they were created by Lewis Carroll. It did create a wonderland, and that's much more than simple good CGI. So it was successful, often a big mistake in the world of Hollywood. If you make money, they'll never let you die. So another story was written this time a re-imagining of the 2nd Book Carroll dedicated to his young heroine. Once again Burton proves he knows when to call it quits. He does remain as a producer but not as a director. And as the movie moves on the difference between the 1st part and the 2nd becomes all too evident. the last 10 minutes of the film are in fact one long lecture, Alice an us are being force fed with one moral lesson after the other. Well Alice is inside the movie she has to swallow it and smile. We on the other hand being captive audience in the movie theater while we're still forced to swallow the same stuff, we're not required to smile. I know I certainly didn't.
It wasn't as funny and imaginative as the first part but before the preachy ending it was doing OK. The acting was still superb, the setting still looked great, and Sacha Baron Cohen proved again that when his comic genius is being kept under control he's a decent actor. But then it became educational: I can honestly say that almost the entire ending had a hollow ring echoing through it.
