through a magical looking glass (a mirror) that takes her back to Underland
where she finds the Mad Hatter isn’t himself and he believes that his family
wasn’t killed by the Jabberwocky. She
makes a journey to the castle of Time (Sacha Baron Cohen) to borrow (steal)
a chronometer (time travel
device) from Time’s clock so she can time travel into Mad Hatter’s past to save
his family before time runs out for Underland.
ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS isn’t as
good as ALICE IN
goes through the same lessons as the first movie and male society still looks
down on her. She seems to be the most
boring character in the cast where the characters in Underland (including Time
and the Mad Hatter) are more interesting than Alice. You learn more about the
pasts of the mad
Hatter, the White Queen, and the Red Queen.
The movie is a very pretty movie to look at with a good music score, but
I wish they put more work into providing better motivation for Alice
and making her a more interesting character.
The Cheshire Cat is very underused in this movie like many of the
returning characters have very little to do in this sequel. Scriptwriter
Linda Woolverton delivers a
script that isn’t as good or as enjoyable as ALICE IN WONDERLAND. It
is currently underperforming at the box
office and the screenplay doesn’t help deliver an experience that will have
people wanting to see in theaters instead of waiting to buy or rent it on
digital. Blu-ray, or DVD. I wish they could use a time machine to go
back to undo this sequel or at least have a better screenplay to film than the
movie they ended up with.
