Despite his duty as a doctor, Bennet is shown to have a cruel personality to Alice, despite claiming herself to him that she has no problems. As Alice believed that he could give her side effects, Alice ends up becoming sensitive to his cruel treatment and countered him using his own syringe against him, much to Helen's shock of what Alice did to him.
Role in the film
After Alice finds herself in the asylum and her mother Helen explains that she has been behaving so strangely, Bennet enters the room Alice is at where he approaches Alice who is planning to return to Underland to save Tarrant Hightopp just as Bennet reads over his textbook to find a way to cure Alice's problems. Addison then gets his syringe out and prepares to finish Alice's treatment. Helen asks him to know if it is really necessary, to which he explains that it is as he becomes distracted upon seeing Mr. Harris taking Helen out of the asylum. Bennet then continues his task with Alice only to find out that his syringe is gone to which it is then known that Alice used his own syringe against him, leaving the doctor paralyzed just as Helen reacts to what Alice did to the doctor in shock, much to Harris' worry as Alice escapes from a group of asylum workers in a plan to return to Underland before Tarrant dies. It is unknown of what happened to him after that.
