It's all a bit bloodless, with a serious shortage of laughs.

This yummy film feels like a healthy choice for growing girls. Though it probably won't earn a billion dollars, what it offers is priceless.

Alice Through the Looking Glass was always going to be something of a stretch. The best material from the Lewis Carroll novel on which it is based was greedily excavated, in 2010, by Tim Burton for his smash hit 3D Alice in Wonderland.

Ever wondered about the troubled childhood of the Mad Hatter? Me neither.

I don't remember the last time I saw actors more dispirited and bored than in Alice Through the Looking Glass.

It's an achievement of sorts, but it's worlds away from the poignant lunacy of the Lewis Carroll books.
May 27, 2016
A solid kids' movie in the old style. One with something to say about something real - family and time- and a willingness to admit consequences, even as it serves up goofy humor, mild thrills, and slippy-slidey accents from slumming stars.

This sprawling tale trades yet again on cultural affection for Alice, the Hatter and the Red Queen without incorporating them into a story or a design that can stand on its own feet.

Burton had the right idea sitting this one out; one trip to "Wonderland" was plenty.
May 27, 2016
As Lewis Carroll should have said: Efficiency is no substitute for enchantment.
May 26, 2016
Just machine-tooled CGI fantasy fare.

Alice, of Alice in Wonderland fame, is dead to me now. Alice Through the Looking Glass has killed her off as a viable character for a movie.
May 26, 2016
Children go to Lewis Carroll in search of lunacy. But this soulless Disney contraption, a sequel to Tim Burton's hit Alice in Wonderland, instead offers child-psyche self-pity.

A whimsy-free business, in Wonderland, of all places! There could be no more ironic stand-in for today's franchise-mad movie marketplace, here to lop the heads off any and all creative personnel.

A better title might be "Alice Through the Funhouse Mirror," though there's little fun on the other side.
May 26, 2016
The movie is gaudy, loud, complacent, and vulgar. As such, it's acceptable entertainment for 21st-century children and audiences who want to be treated like children.
May 26, 2016
Visually, Alice through the Looking Glass has its moments but pretty backgrounds and clever special effects can't obscure the disappointment resulting from a half-baked script and a miscast villain.
May 26, 2016
Shorn of much of the whimsy and wordplay that made Carroll's Alice tales immortal and Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland a treat, this belated revisiting fractures the narrative and tries the patience.
May 26, 2016
"Alice Through the Looking Glass" is a movie for anyone who ever skimmed a passage of Lewis Carroll and thought, "This is great, but it could use a bit more 'Terminator.'"
May 26, 2016
The screenplay (by Linda Woolverton) isn't exactly heaving with brilliant ideas, but it works well enough as a blank canvas against which the special-effects team goes bonkers.
