Not entirely sure what to make of this
10 June 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Now I know Burbank Films Australia are capable of making a good animation. I loved their Wind in the Willows and Peter Pan, but I wasn't sure what to make of their Alice in Wonderland. Granted it's better than the versions of The Three Musketeers, The Old Curiosity Shop and Prisoner of Zenda, but something was lacking here. I did like the theme song, it does repeat itself but it is a pleasant and catchy tune. The characters are more colourful and engaging than the Jetlag version especially Mad Hatter and Queen of Hearts, Alice herself is much less bland and while odd(purposefully) the Cheshire Cat is fun also. The animation is not too bad, while the character designs are on the scratchy side the backgrounds are quite colourful. The rest of the music aside from the song though is rather screechy and over-bearing, while the recording of the voices is I agree rather muted, which probably accounts for why some of the vocal work seemed uninterested. The writing doesn't quite give an over-simplified feeling like the Jetlag version did, but still feels as though it is lacking in thoughtfulness and wit. The story is more faithful in spirit to Jetlag's and while the dream-like feel is there, the oddball nature and the nuances of the story(which I have always considered one of the all-time greats) aren't quite. All in all, not bad as such but I am not sure whether I kind of like it or dislike it. 5/10 Bethany Cox
