Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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
"Malice In Wonderland does little to remind you of the performances that once had critics and even the late great Harold Pinter crowing about his talent as [Dyer] started out on the West End stage."
‑ , Film4
"Alice's adventures lose something in their contemporary translation, and there is very little to care about. It's nicely shot, though, in the style of a 1980s music video."
‑ Jeremy Aspinall, Radio Times
"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
"While you might expect a cheap quickie designed to cash in on the Tim Burton feature ... Malice in Wonderland is actually an honest and at times intriguing updating of the classic set in modern times, in the cockney underworld of South London."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Despite a certain visual flair, Malice in Wonderland just isn't very good. The screenplay is the main problem - it's just too flat and unimaginative to justify the larger-than- life cartoon characters that populate the movie."
‑ Wendy Ide, Times [UK]
"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]
"Genuinely original interpretation of the Brit gangster and Lewis Carroll's surreal tale."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"Dyer has some funny lines, and he makes the most of them, proving that he is actually a good performer, all too often marooned in endless geezer knees-ups. But otherwise it's a bit pointless and heavy-handed."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"A good idea that unfortunately doesn't quite work, thanks to poor direction and a script that's not as clever or as funny as it thinks it is."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
