I was surprised how much I liked this movie! I thought "Alice in Wonderland" was a weird, nearly incoherent movie. But "Through the Looking Glass" actually has a plot that you can follow the ENTIRE way through, and it's a fairly entertaining story involving regret, time-travel and family relationships. A lot of chuckle-worthy moments spread throughout, and it's great to hear Alan Rickman's voice one last time in a film.
I recommend this movie much more highly than the first Alice (perhaps due to the fact that Tim Burton is only a producer & not the director this time). It's family-friendly and visually impressive. And in my opinion, it's worth the extra $$ to see it in 3D for the time traveling sequences alone.
Alice saving Wonderland from the Jabawocky as well as returning to Wonderland is the Through the Looking Glass story pretty much in the previous film. Alice walking through a mirror to Wonderland in this film is pretty much the only faithful thing to the Through Looking Glass story.
Mia Wasikowska plays Alice again with ease so she isn't a problem with the film. The problem is despite having a decent time travel plot the movie is hardly the book.
As with the first film, this is visually impressive but it never quite grabbed me. Certainly not a bad film and am sure fans of the characters will get a lot from it. For me, my time down the rabbit hole is over. I urge Hollywood to seal the hole with concrete unless they can create something truly magical.
Almost as good and smart as World of Warcraft
Interesting movie. Good visuals, as usual, with an element of time travel. Maybe too much focus on the Mad Hatter, seeing how this series has a preference in his character... But I digress. There were things about this movie that I prefer over the first and same vice versa. Not bad.
