Critic Reviews for Malice in Wonderland
Quite apart from the fact that it mistakes sexism and homophobia for sardonic liberal rib-tickling, even at 80 minutes, the film feels like a brash, crass and boneheaded music promo that's been stretched to breaking point.
Despite a certain visual flair, Malice in Wonderland just isn't very good. The screenplay is the main problem - it's just too flat and unimaginative to justify the larger-than- life cartoon characters that populate the movie.
Dyer has some funny lines, and he makes the most of them, proving that he is actually a good performer, all too often marooned in endless geezer knees-ups. But otherwise it's a bit pointless and heavy-handed.
While you might expect a cheap quickie designed to cash in on the Tim Burton feature ... Malice in Wonderland is actually an honest and at times intriguing updating of the classic set in modern times, in the cockney underworld of South London.
Genuinely original interpretation of the Brit gangster and Lewis Carroll's surreal tale.
Audience Reviews for Malice in Wonderland
A dark twist of a classic tale! Amnesiac Alice (Maggie Grace) runs down a London underpass and hooks up with Whitey (Danny Dyer), a cab driver who worries he's always late. Fleeing through a tilted, neon-lit cityscape, they encounter bizarre, dangerous characters. This urban spin on Lewis Carroll has clever reinterpretations (the Cheshire Cat is a mysterious DJ, and Tweedledum and Tweedledee are obnoxious club doormen), and guest turns from the likes of Nathaniel Parker combine Britpic gangland eccentricity with Adam West Batman villainy. Grace is a bit vapid as pill-popping, whiny Alice, and Dyer's twitchiness is overdone, but Malice is lively, inventive and has a unique look.
Intriging but trying a bit too hard to be clever..
Alice loses her memory and enters a psychedelic Wonderland of quirky lowlife London gangsters. The quirky gangsters have a definite Guy Ritchie feel to them, but the clever, wordplay laden script is the main star; check out the unexpected way Alice steals the tarts
