Enjoyable from start to final credits! (by cristoreyenlinea)
Visually stunning and with a captivating story, this movie is enjoyable from start to end. Centered on time management, it gives lessons on how to get the best of every second and how useless is trying to stop it or reverse it. It also breaks the old "time is gold" quote. Alice is now less innocent and fearless, defeating Time the character while moving through mind blowing past time scenes. Between the lines there are lessons on honesty, friendship, family love and respect. Each next scene is so unexpected that you won't get any chance to loose attention. Imagination at its <more>
highest degree, the intricately colorful Burtonish locations, changing at lightning speed, are a most-see jaw dropping spectacle any member of your family will want to experience more than once. I saw it in an Imax cinema in Santo Domingo. The 3D rendition and sound are fantastic. Those who use to claim that "second parts were never good" will undoubtedly change their minds after watching Alicia Through The Looking Glass. Highly recommended!! by Rafi Pinales .
ignore the clueless critics this is a wonderful movie! (by ProffUnicorn)
Ignore the Hollywood politics and clueless critics. This is an excellent enjoyable movie, one of the best of the year. It has good clean humor, outstanding special effects, excellent acting, the best cinematography, and multiple interesting plot lines that are all brought together nicely at the end.Visually the film is amazing. There is a great deal of fascinating detail, and multi-layered beauty in the environments that were created for this film. It is well worth seeing more than once. It is better than Avatar visually.The acting is top notch. Alice is superb.The humor is wonderful, in that <more>
it is truly funny without being crude, foul, or stupid as are so many movies being released. I highly recommend this film.
A welcomed step back into the looking glass (by ccorral419)
Director James Bobin Muppets 2011 & 2014 , along with writer Linda Wolverton Alice... 2010 once again bring color, amazing CGI effects and easy storytelling although a bit complicated at times to Lewis Carroll's book. Skirting Depp's current personal affairs, he once again captures the Mad Hatter, this time with more believable reserved flair enabling him to slip easily into his shy yet disturbed character. Successfully sharing the primarily and believable green screen set is the wonderfully adverturist Mia Wasikowska "Alice," Helena Bonham Carter as big head Red <more>
Queen "Iracebeth," Anne Hathaway as the less then attractive floating princesses "Marana," quirky Sacha Baron Cohen as "Time," Matt Lucas as the lovable Tweedledee / Tweddledum, and the wonderful voices to name a few of Timothy Spall, Ed Spellers and the late Alan Rickman. "Alice Through the Looking Glass" isn't rocket science, it's just a good family film filled with colorfully special effects, a familiar storyline and good acting - regardless of what many a film critic are saying. If anything didn't quite fit into the fantasy environment of the film, it was the closing credits song by vocal artists Pink. Where the film places one firmly in a fantasy environment, Pink's song is too current, thus pulling one away from the established dream-state. Regardless, when Awards time rolls around, "Alice..." should fill its glass with recognition.
Literally every second of this movie is worth watching ! it's even better than the first one. I love the visual effects, maybe that's why I loved this movie so much, I mean the nature in Underland, the time castle, much effort was put on this movie and it was worth it . I wasn't expecting that much of it, since I didn't expect a good story. But the story of Time is incredible ! And those little seconds of his are so cute, I liked the idea of the white queen not being totally good by lying in her childhood and being part of the reason that made her sisters' head big. I wish <more>
there were more parts for the Cheshire cat, I love his grin :D. But, finding The Hatter's family could've taken more light, the hatter just finds them and that's it. We should've got the opportunity to watch more of them after they come back. Still, this movie's became one of my favorite fantasy movies .
In the minority because as many critics fail to see there is a good plot to through the looking glass! (by nicolethomas28)
First of all I was hesitant to watch through the looking glass partly because of bad reviews but mostly because my favorite director Tim Burton didn't direct this movie. I finally watched through the looking glass and I was pleasantly surprised! Beautiful graphics and visuals and a touching plot about the importance of not taking those you love for granted...and not taking time for granted. This movie shows how we all learn from our pasts and that we cannot and should not want to change the past. It seems a majority of the critics could not put two and two together to understand or <more>
appreciate the message this film conveyed. Shame on you critics ... curiouser and curiouser. ..why half of you can't comprehend. Maybe lacking neurons and brain cells ? Wonderful job done by the actors and actresses as well as the director trying to add some spice to a worldly well written classic by respected author Lewis Carroll
I liked the fact that the script of the movie is full of puns and rhymes taken from the original work. This makes the movie as interesting as the original Through the Looking Glass since Lewiss Carroll was famous with riddles and hidden messages in his works and he was known to include mathematical wonders in the writing such as the case of Alice in Wonderland. Maybe the plot was not greasy enough but overall it was a nice movie. The character that I liked most is Hatter Johnny Depp who has again striken me with his ability to wear different hats of roles and to impersonate himself in the <more>
character he's given. Also, the character of Alice was a fit with her angelic smile that reflects an innocent adult.
Better than expected, thanks to negative critics (by buggy3001)
If i could give half stars, this would be in the 7.5 category. Like the title says, thanks to bad critic reviews, i went in with extremely low expectations and was actually surprised with a fun and enjoyable movie.The movie is a lot brighter, sunnier, than the first one, and i think that's what made it more fun. Its not gloomy. There's a bit of whimsy to it.There's a lot of action scenes with a few breathers in between to develop the story some more. Neither kids, nor adults, will find it dragging at any point in time.The story isn't too deep, good for kids, a tad more boring <more>
for adults who will probably enjoy the FX eye candy more, as per critic reviews ; the dialogue is okay but has a couple of cringe worthy lines that you'd expect out of a 3rd grader, trying to write his first script, instead of someone in Hollywood. I want to call the script, "simple". I personally find it lacking, perhaps shifted towards younger audiences more, on purpose, but in the end, it works fine. The acting ranges from okay to great, thanks to performances from Sasha playing as "Time", and a few of the secondary characters throughout the story. Mia's also eons better than what she was doing in the 1st Alice movie, and she did her best with what she was given.Thankfully, Depp's Mad Hatter wasn't the "lead" in this movie as much as before. His character is central to the plot of the movie, but takes a step back to Alice's performance, something the script got right for a change. Its a good family movie that will entertain a wide range of ages, but lacks the depth of a movie like Titanic or The Shawshank Redemption, that critics seem to be looking for.
I loved this film, but if you're expecting a "book accurate" adaption, this film is not that. (by sophiaserpa)
I had seen a lot of negative reviews about this film before I went to see it and now that I have watched the movie I'm rather irritated by the criticism it got. I'm someone that has read and loved both of Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland books they are actually my favorite classic novels and I absolutely loved this film, not because it's like the book, but rather because it took the idea of Alice in Wonderland and its characters and created a new, interesting story. There was so much criticism saying that this film is nothing like the book, which is somewhat true, but <more>
neither was the Tim Burton film that was done before this one. Burton's Alice in Wonderland was inspired by a single poem from the novel Through the Looking Glass The Jabberwocky and also referenced Down the Rabbit Hole, but still had its own original storyline, just like this film did. There was also much criticism saying that the story was hard to follow, which I found to be quite the opposite. This film did a bit of hand holding and lead the audience through the plot to make sure everything was clear, but I personally find the criticism of an Alice in Wonderland film having a "hard to follow plot" a ridiculous criticism because anyone who read Lewis Carroll's novels knows that the "plot" is practically nonexistent and the point of the novels is the adventure, creativity, and absurdity. I personally loved much of the nonsensical banter in this film, but could see how it would confuse someone trying to make sense of it and apply it to the plot, but again I make the argument of previous adaptions doing this and being praised. Disney's animated Alice in Wonderland for instance, has just a tad more of a plot than Lewis Carroll's novels, but is still filled with even more nonsense than this film and yet it was better received and I think this is due to today's audiences expecting an epic tail with a complex plot when they go to see a film rather than simply enjoying movies as a creative art form. Another criticism I saw was that the visuals weren't as good as the previous film which isn't true. Yes the previous film used a bit less CGI and a darker pallet, but that was Tim Burton's choice as a director and a design technique that fit that films tone. This film used a much brighter colour scheme and tended to have more CGI characters, but this is because this film is meant to be much more lighthearted and there were many more characters that were too complex in design to not be CGI, but those characters were still unique and creative as well as properly rendered and well animated. I think most of the bad reviews of this film come from people who were expecting a true adaption of Lewis Carroll's book Through the Looking Glass-which, lets face it, would not have been well received either because of it's "nonplot"-. Or maybe the reviews are from people expecting another Tim Burton film-which this isn't, it's directed by James Bobin-. Or perhaps they come from people that would have liked a child Alice and then would have been more willing to accept all of the nonsense, childlike behavior and excitement Alice had in this film. In short I loved this film, and this is coming from someone who loves Lewis Carroll's books and who is studying film. If you're expecting a "book accurate" adaption, this film is not that, but it is still creative and fun and does capture the essence of Carroll's books, so I would suggest you go watch it and form your own opinion, but the only advice I would give is to go into this movie with the open and adventurous mind of a child.
