Synopsis


Alice Through the Looking Glass
Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returns to Wonderland after finding success in the real world as a ship's captain, only to discover that the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) is suffering from severe depression. Eager to help her friend, she steals a time-travel device called the Chronosphere and journeys into the past in order to save the Hatter's family. Elsewhere, the deposed Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) also attempts to go back in time and heal old wounds. Anne Hathaway, Alan Rickman, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Michael Sheen co-star. James Bobin (The Muppets) directed this time around, taking over from Tim Burton (who helmed 2010's Alice in Wonderland). ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    Positively Wonderful!

    The most wonderful aspect of Alice Through the Looking Glass is its vivid instruction of love and healing, it's clear message that we so often miss in life of how easy it is to turn hatred and enmity to love. The movie's direction to the right course of action to resolve even decades old hatred and mistakes made with loved ones is absolutely fantastic. This is the most heart-warming movie in decades. It is an amazing family film and is simply not to be missed. One final reason not to miss this film is the fabulously stunning appearance of youth Louis Serkis as the boy Hatter. He has just become my new favorite image in film, and his scene alone would make this movie a classic.

    Too bad box office for this movie would seem to rate it poorly but it was as good as the first and teaches several great messages to children and adults alike; do not be hasty in condemnation before getting all the facts, as appearances can be deceiving, and, time and it's passage and our aging is a curse or a blessing depending mostly how we use it; you cannot change the past but you can change the meaning and direction of the past and present and force suffering and loss to work for you instead of against you, by changing the future by correcting the present. And, never give up and things will usually turn out ok, though not as we expect. Plus, it gives both endings. Watch it and see what I mean.

    I was pretty disappointed with the previous Alice movie just for the fact that I was a HUGE fan of Tim Burton and loved his darker style of story telling.. So I'll admit I was a little unsure about this purchase but was an impulse by because I have a weird obsession with Alice in Wonderland.. so I bought this (not even knowing that Tim Burton hadn't produced it..) and kind of glad he didn't for the fact that the new producer finally did what I had hoped they would do in the first movie!! They really made this story darker and creepier and make a lot of awesome reference about not being able to cheat time, etc.. loved the concept.. and Sacha Baron Cohen is amazing in the movie!!

    Great package from Disney, as usual.

    The film looks fantastic and includes loads of fun bonus features. That said, the film itself is rather an ordeal to sit through, as it's trying to do too much in order to meet the high bar set by the first film. It wanders off path and is too unbalanced to keep some viewers attention and continues to backtrack to tell a story that could have been more streamlined. Uses special effects as filler when story becomes too convoluted or thin to hold the picture up on it's own; seems to be more of a cash in on the successes of the first film and doesn't really have the chops to stand on it's own with other Disney adaptations.

    The music was too loud. I had a hard time hearing the dialogue many times as the music played over them. It doesn't follow Alice through the looking glass at all aside from the fact she goes through a mirror. It feels more like a time machine movie honestly, which is fine, but again not an Alice plot. The queen of hearts and the white queen get a good story, but it still feels a little bland. The costumes and makeup are all well done and the looks of it are beautiful, but again I strained to hear them speak over the booming music. Such a pity.

    We were hesitant to watch this due to the rather poor reviews, but after checking it out on cable, I knew I wanted it for my collection. Not as good as the first, but still an enjoyable adventure populated with weird but lovable characters. Hard to believe the Hatter is played by the same kid I first saw so many years ago in Nightmare on Elm Street! Great costumes and set designs that look fantastic on bluray. Check it out, especially if you're a fan of all things Wonderland, like I am!

    The past meets present . Alice is on her own but battles feminine oppression. Why can't a girl command a ship? Alice is called back to wonderland to help hatter and her friends in the kingdom. Beautiful color, cgi & storyline. I won't spoil the ending but it was interesting. It is a good family movie girls will have questions and parents will answer & reflect the past to future of their daughters paths. Enjoyed the movie hope you will to.

    A New Twist on an Old Story

    This movie doesn't follow the original story of Alice Through the Looking Glass but it does tell an interesting new tale that was unexpected. Alice has grown into the strong woman as she was developing into in the first movie. It also has developed a back story of the rivalry between the red and white queens. The movie was refreshing in it's imagination while staying mostly true to the original characters from the books. The set designs and costumes are beautiful.
