Summary

After slipping through a mirror, Alice (Wasikowska) finds herself back in Wonderland. Her friends tell her that the Mad Hatter (Depp) is sick. Hoping to save him, Alice steals the chronosphere from Time (Baron Cohen) to travel into the past.

Is The Plot Interesting?

The plot did have some problems but overall it was quite good. I liked how it answered a lot of the questions Alice In Wonderland had left us with and created backstories¬†for the characters that didn’t have one after the first movie ended.

Is The Acting Good?

Each and every one of them just slip right back into character, or for the new members of the cast get straight into character. None of them hold back at all but at times I did think there was some overacting.

Is The Directing Good?

Tim Burton did not return to direct the latest movie in this franchise so James Bobin took on the role and I thought he did a fantastic job. He really made the movie feel unique and special.

Is The Cinematography Good?

The cinematography went perfectly with the tone of the movie and stood out as being one of the movies strongest points. A lot like Alice In Wonderland, the movie is visually effective.

Is It Worth Watching?

If I’m honest, Alice Through The Looking Glass was a bit of a¬†disappointment. Although it was enjoyable to a certain extent, it wasn’t as good as Alice In Wonderland which I had hoped it would be.

3/5

When the day becomes the night and the sky becomes the sea, When the clock strikes heavy and there’s no time for tea. And in our darkest hour, before my final rhyme, she will come back home to Wonderland and turn back the hands of time.
