More elaborate and far longer than earlier silent versions, this one comes with a strangely unnecessary explanatory intro and an unconventionally unstressed rabbit luring Alice into »Dreamland« – major spoiler alert!
Weirdly cool animal costumes and a charming lead actress, but everything takes far too long and only come across as aimless and meandering in a boring way. Not in my book of card play.
Heavy reliance on text intertitles – complete with unnecessary spoilers! – for understanding. Suffering from fragmented and jittery editing. All in all, this turns into a rather bumpy ride whether you’re familiar with the source material or not. Reasonably well-made »special effects« for its time, though.
