Newsclip®: [Entertainment] Review: 'Alice Through the Looking Glass,' a curious sequel - Houston Chronicle

"Screenwriter Linda Woolverton ('Beauty and the Beast') has again disposed of the source material in favor of something more linear — a story about Alice (Mia Wasikowska) looking for Hatter's (Johnny Depp) family. Director James Bobin's ('The Muppets') film trudges on through the lushly designed world answering questions we never asked, like, 'What was the Mad Hatter's childhood like?' And, 'why does the Red Queen have such a large head?' In other words, it's an Underland origin story. The nightmarish Hatter, who has developed a more pronounced (and annoying) lisp, is wallowing in life-threatening depression (manifested in combed hair, a sicklier pallor and a grown up wardrobe) because he's found an object that makes him believe his family is alive. Time talks a big game and can also decide when someone's time is up, but his own command is dependent on a larger than life clock that's powered by another",
