Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: The presence of Danny Dyer, meanwhile, has likely tipped you off to the fact that it's a) set in a world of Brit gangsters, and b) not very good.

- Alistair Harkness, Scotsman, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: Simon Fellows and screenwriter Jayson Rothwell have come up with one of the worst ever ideas for a movie and created a cinematic abomination devoid of point, humour and entertainment value.

- Christopher Tookey, Daily Mirror [UK], Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: 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.

- David Jenkins, Time Out, Friday, February 5, 2010

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.

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

Intriging but trying a bit too hard to be clever..
