Alice (in Wonderland) TV Mini Series (2009) Movie Review
Quick Facts About Alice the TV Miniseries.
Alice the TV mini-series is one that almost passed by me unnoticed when it aired on television in two parts on Sunday, December 6, 2009. A total of four hours of viewing, it premièred in two, two-hour segments.
This Alice movie is a modern interpretation of Lewis Carroll's books and as such, is an unusual look into Alice in Wonderland’s world, starring Caterina Scorsone, Andrew Lee Potts, Matt Frewer, Philip Winchester, Tim Curry and even features Kathy Bates in a guest spot.
The DVD and blu-ray discs were released on March 2, 2010 and are available right now, nicely discounted, ffrom Amazon.

The Story From This Television Version of Alice
This Alice is twenty-one years old. She meets a gentlemen who presents here with his family ring and then is kidnapped. Alice then finds herself facing a stranger known as the White Rabbit who promises to help. Alice enters Wonderland which, in this movie is a highly untypical underground city. Word circulates that Alice is in Wonderland and it turns out that the ring is the one that controls the power of the Queen of Hearts, the looking glass. Why did Jack, the son of the Queen, give Alice the ring? She’s soon to find out.
This movie is not for everyone, and some found it to be a bit lacking in character development and high plot points calling it 'decent.' It features some action sequences, a bit of romance and a good dose of surreality. It is an unusual movie that is definitely bizarre and quite unique. Many viewers found it entertaining and worth owning even after they had watched it on television, with 19 viewers giving it a five-star rating on Amazon even before they have the chance to own the DVD. Right now, it is too soon to review the blu-ray version.
