This Looking Glass is a bit prosaic in its narrative, but it's so exhilarating to look at that, in the end, it's a fair balance.

All in all, the film was a bit confusing and overly frenetic at times, but still highly entertaining.

Once I gave up on pointing out differences from the book, I enjoyed it, but houses that look like top hats, a table amid fiddlehead ferns and toadstools set with elaborate sweets, and really fabulous costumes can really count for a lot for me.

When compared to Burton's work, this one pales in comparison. If you haven't seen his film, you are bound to find this wondrous, a journey worth taking for sure.

The rip-roaring special effects serve little purpose, other than to attempt to obscure a narrative so moronic that it's not only offensive to Carroll fans, but confusing to anyone, Alice aficionado or not.

Special effects spectacular.

The film is designed purely as a kaleidoscopic confection for the eyes and, in those terms, makes for splendid family entertainment.

With a far more complex story this time around, this sequel could give a Doctor Who episode a run for its money with all the timey-whimey stuff.

Ultimately, what the film lacks in narrative, it makes up for in its ability to simultaneously explore whimsy and tenderness in its characters.

The movie pours in enough action, puns and genuine emotion to keep the voyage worth it. After the journey ends, though, the wonder quickly fades and the vessel's leaks become more pronounced.

Sacha Baron Cohen absolutely steals the show and a cameo appearance from Irish actor Andrew Scott is another definite highlight.

Looking Glass might not be a masterpiece but it is at least good natured, funny and coherent. And it's managed to put some of the wonder back in wonderland.
June 22, 2016
The texture of the endeavor is more than enough to sell the attempt. These are images with some level of depth and distinction to them.

Although this film's Alice does not pass through Lewis Carroll's looking glass, the movie is a visual wonderland of sets, costumes and makeup.
June 17, 2016
As expected, 'Alice' is a visual extravaganza-at times eye-popping. So much to take in, it borders on exhausting. Still James Bobin and his team have created an environment which is a pleasure to behold...

This Mad Hatter adventure in Wonderland is a worthy follow up to the more successful 2010 film 'Alice in Wonderland.' In addition to adventure, there is also the kind of clever word play and sly humor one expects from the source material.

Screenwriter Linda Woolverton shows considerable ingenuity in the way she creates backstories for Lewis Carroll's characters.
June 3, 2016
This much more light-hearted sequel reinvigorates the franchise after Disney's quirky but murky 2010 reboot of Lewis Carroll's classic, which sent the heroine into Underland for a dark adventure that spiralled into a Lord of the Rings-scale battle.
June 2, 2016
The movie is top-heavy with CGI, like icing on a gaudy wedding cake. But under that vulgar exterior beats the heart of spirited fantasy adventure, directed with buoyant panache by James Bobin.
June 1, 2016
It's an enjoyable return to Wonderland, but still missing the wonder.
