(6-Good Film)

Unnecessary. Entertaining. Colorful.

Sequel to the surprise mega-hit Alice in Wonderland (2010, Directed by Tim Burton), this entry was both a critical and financial flop. Nobody really wanted a sequel. That being said, I prefer this film to its predecessor. Alice returns to Wonderland to find the Hatter (Depp) has changed. He’s deluded himself into thinking that his family, long deceased, is still alive. Alice knows the only way to save her friend is to go back in time and save the Hatter’s family, making his fantasy true. Not suspenseful or exciting enough to be called a great adventure film, Alice Through the Looking Glass still offers enough irreverence, wit, and fantastic visuals to be worth seeing.
