I went to see this with my family at IMAX as part of my 17th birthday present. This was my first ever trip to IMAX and I have to say it was quite intense, the screening room was huge and the screen was even bigger.

I've heard that quite a few people have been saying that the film is rubbish but I actually really enjoyed it, of course it’s not perfect and it's not as good as Disney's Alice In Wonderland (1951), but I don't think it's as bad as what some people have been saying.

I love the idea of how the film is meant to be like a sequel but where Alice has absolutely no memory of the first visit to Wonderland. The story was very different to how I remembered it and there were a few new characters introduced that confused me a bit, especially when it came to the Red Queen’s lover.

There was definitely one thing I hated more than anything else and that was definitely the CGI that was used on Crispin Glover who played the Knave of Hearts, it was incredibly distracting.

This is the first time I’ve ever seen a film at IMAX and it is a completely immersive experience, with a slightly curved screen and speakers all over the room it feels as though the film completely surrounds you and you're sucked into the story.

My Rating: 6/10
One Final Word: Good
