We loved how parts of this movie tied into sections of the first AIW. Setting up the ever-lasting tea party; Hatter finding the fabric in the burned town; the white & red queen's history of how their relationship came about. Although some things make more sense if you have seen Burton's AIW, Through the Looking Glass can stand on it's own also.
The bonus features were great - interviews, the making of costumes, the making of Pink's song & video.
Our house has seen Burton's Alice in Wonderland so many times, we know it by heart. Through The Looking Glass will be the same way.
This sequel picks up right where it left off giving us a strong and independent version of Alice with tight bonds of friendship to all her compatriots in Wonderland. Sacha Barron Cohen is fantastic as Time especially, when he plays off of The Mad Hatter and his nutty crew. You get some interesting insight into the past of both the Queens and Hatter and those backstories give you a very interesting perspective on how they came to be. Those stories will definitely put a few things on their own heads.
Once again, a fun tale of silliness and an entertaining follow up to a crafty re-envisioning.
Alice Through The Looking Glass is a solid sequel that brings back all the elements that made the original film so good: the delightful cast is stronger and better than ever, Mia Wasikowska shines again as Alice, and Helena Bonhan Carter, Anne Hathaway and Johnny Depp deliver strong performances as well. The special effects are stunning and beautifully made, and the storyline is entertaining from beginning to end, providing witty jokes, and a perfectly executed script. It's a film
that kids and adults will love.
I'm just sad to read it flopped on the US box office, to me, it was a delightful ride that I'm buying on Blu-Ray as soon as it comes out, I even dare to say that is better than the first film. It reminds me of how badly last year's Tomorrowland was treated, to me, the best live action Disney film from 2015. Hopefully Alice does better on the International office, because it truly deserves it. Although it might feel a little unnecessary at first, give it a chance and you'll love the film; this is Alice reloaded, bigger and better! Catch it on theaters while you can and have an open mind and you'll end up loving it just like I did.
It is a shame however, that this film did not get such good reviews and response from the box office. I personally think that Alice in Wonderland (the first film) should have been done more differently to what everyone else was expecting (how Alice first goes into Wonderland and we know the whole story). I did find it interesting though, how she was 18 and going back to Wonderland, but I think after the first film, everyone got tired of it and decided to call it a day. I actually like Tim Burton's style of directing and animation but I prefer his older films rather than his newer ones.
The ending of the film (SPOILER ALERT) could have been done better. I find it amusing that Hamich get's his at the end when Alice comes back to the real world but I find that they should have done something much more insulting but I get that this is a children's film (kind of not really). What is really strange is that Alice is a captain of a ship...? This was obviously done as filler content but I find it highly unlikely that she would do this, even at the end of the first film. What I also didn't expect is for her to chop off her hair either. The story is definitely not what the original book was and it was twisted to entertain new audiences but I still feel inclined to say that they shouldn't have done this and that they should have stuck to the original plot not to confuse others who have actually read the book.
Overall I give this a 4/5 stars.
