Director James Bobin’s Alice Through the Looking Glass is a joyous fantasy full of action and magic. It, also, had Mia Wasikowska, who has never turned in less than an excellent performance.
Writer Linda Woolverton’s story takes us on a fast-paced romp wherein Alice had to rescue Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) from terminal depression over his belief his family may still be alive. To find out, Alice must steal a device from Time (Sacha Baron Cohen) that will allow her to go back into the past to discover what may have happened to them.
Production Designer Dan Hennah’s fabulous sets allow us to thoroughly enjoy her pursuit and Helena Bonham Carter’s Iracebeth adds to the laughs, as always.
Alice Through the Looking Glass is fun for all ages and worth seeing in 3D. I give it a 4.3 out of 5.
