5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Re-imagining March 5 2010
This latest production from the SyFy channel is truly fantastic. Where 'Tin Man' lacked, Alice makes up for and then some.

Coming in at 3 hours, the miniseries never stops for breath and the viewer is constantly guessing where the plot will go next. If you are familiar with the original book you will notice the length to which the writers went to integrating pieces of it into the main story as well as all the background details.

The acting is excellent (and really, Kathy Bates was born to play the Queen of Hearts) and the cinematography is excellent. Andrew Lee Potts turns the classic Hatter completely on its head and presents a completely new version of the character (so much so that the new Depp version of the Hatter makes you wonder how the character can be taken in so many completely different directions).

The film also has real relevance to today's world, which is where TinMan was lacking. In TinMan, the evil wasn't overly scary or original, but in Alice the plot of the Queen is plausible and just downright creepy.

Overall a fantastic miniseries that I have been waiting to purchase for months now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alice of legend May 16 2010
There's a girl in a blue dress, a Queen of Hearts, and a a magical looking glass that whisks the heroine into a surreal Wonderland.

But beyond that, don't expect this SyFy miniseries to have much in common with Lewis Carroll's classic novel, "Alice in Wonderland." Instead, "Alice" is a whole different animal -- a deliciously gritty sci-fi adventure filled with action, romance, monsters psychedelic horrors, and a revolution against a drug-peddling queen. It's a little silly, but still immensely entertaining.

Alice's (Caterina Scorsone) dinner date with her boyfriend Jack (Philip Winchester) falls apart when he offers her an heirloom ring. When she chases after him, she sees him being dragged off by some suit-wearing thugs -- and promptly trips THROUGH a looking glass. Of course she ends up in Wonderland, a world of grimy urban ruins and art deco casinos. And it's ruled by the Queen of Hearts (Kathy Bates), a ruthless tyrant who keeps her populace drugged with emotions from kidnapped "oysters" (ordinary humans).

Alice ends up following the eccentric Hatter (Andrew-Lee Potts), who offers to take her to the Resistance -- but when they get there, they discover that Jack's ring is actually the Stone of Wonderland (which powers the transdimensional Looking Glass). Since everybody in Wonderland wants the Stone, Hatter and Alice end up on the run from both the Resistance and the Queen's assassin Mad March. Alice is still determined to rescue Jack and return home, but she soon finds that her boyfriend isn't quite what she thought -- and that one of her loved ones is the Queen's brainwashed slave.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting take on the classic April 8 2010
I really like classic stories retold. This adaptation of Alice in Wonderland is specifically geared for a more adult audience as it contains more violent themes. You'll definitely like it because its both very familiar and unexpected. Filmed in beautiful British Columbia, it makes use of spectacular visual settings, and it uses very creative computer backgrounds and characters. You find that Alice is a strong and independent female role model who can take care of herself while trying to figure out this strange new world and rescue her boyfriend from those who kidnapped him. A lot of surprises, an interesting love story, an action packed film, and a lot of comic relief rolled up into one really cool, really different mini series.

3.0 out of 5 stars About as much Alice as an "alice pack" July 25 2010
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Alice is dysfunctional and never destined to love until one day...

This miniseries gives many popular actors a little more work and allows them to explore their emotional sides. I was waiting for Kathy Bates to pull out a sledgehammer.

This film is beyond silly and stilted. It defiantly has no relationship to the Lewis Carroll except the names. This I not a remake or an adaptation.

If you forget about Carroll and look at this as a dump Saturday afternoon entertainment, it can be fun. However, it would have been nice to have tossed in a few Carroll type witticisms. You could not really call this Sci-Fi as there is more Sci-Fi in "The Lone Ranger" come to think of it this is the lone ranger without the mask.

If you expect the classic, forget it. If you are looking for fun, you may find it. If for some strange inexplicable reason, you enjoy this type of film then do not miss "Tin Man."

Tin Man (Two-Disc Collector's Edition)~ Zooey Deschanel

5.0 out of 5 stars Alice grows up Jan. 31 2011
I loved this production--much more than the heralded Tim Burton movie. A modern day Alice falls through the looking glass and runs into people rather than cartoon characters. There are some amazing cameos by a few well known actors and a brilliant performance by a new-comer to me, Andrew-Lee Potts. Kathy Bates as the Queen of Hearts is perfect and provides a few laughs. All in all this is a wonderful way to pass a few hours. The original was a 2-part mini series so the progrsam is 3 hours long but the time passes very quickly. The visual settings are special effects in themselves and the gadgetry items are ingenious. I purchase very few DVDs but I watched for this to become available. Enough said--Enjoy!
