‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’ Review: Dreams Bare No Difference From Reality

Disneys ‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’ is equally as mystical as its predecessor, ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Alice goes back to Wonderland only to find her good friend Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) not only mad, but dying. And he has a valid reason to.

Alice (Mia Wasikowska) being the good friend that she is, defies all odds to go back in time - literally to try save her friend by giving him the only thing that could make him happy.

Meanwhile, Time (Sacha Baron Cohen) is a man, and he certainly waits for no one. Also, he’s in love with the evil Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter), but she’s only in love with herself.

The movie is shot in 3D and has an outstanding and superb imagery of what Wonderland could possibly look like. The movie feels like a world snatched right from a child’s dreams - where fantasy and reality merge to become one.

The plot is also very moving and will leave you mouth wide agape at just how marvellous the characters seemingly weave through their lines.  The characters are also pretty witty and charming, with a die-hard loyalty to each other that would put your friendships to  shame.

The James Bobin-directed movie is a different approach to Tim Burton’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’, but nevertheless magical.

I rate it a 4 out of 5.
