The Other Side of the Mirror full movie review - Low budget re imagination of a famous story that fails at everything.
With the tag-line " The darker side of the mirror " i had some hopes of this movie. With a really good original story about the break between childhood and growing up, i hoped that this was some kind of dark sequel like what we have with the wizard of Oz.
Instead what we get is what i assume is the local cos-player/ civil war re-enactment/ steam-punk group trying their hardest to act without any kind of budget.
As Director,writer,producer and editor 95% of the blame fall on Zach Hamer - the rest goes to whomever decided to have loud license free music play the whole time during the movie!
A small tip to Zach here - when you introduce a character ( bad, good or mysterious ) ,let them do something that makes us care ( bad , good or mysterious ). This was 2 hours of characters we had absolutely no interest in. To see what i mean, watch the Tim Burton Alice movie again and watch what all new characters do within the first two minutes of screen time.
A small tip to anyone thinking about watching this movie: get the game Alice: Madness Returns on steam instead. Better story and characters you care about. ( also much darker mature story, so nothing for the weak of heart. )
