It was good, the special effects were great, was disappointed in the story line and the witches. Mila just did not have it to be a witch nice or not. And Glinda was not elegant as you would have thought she would be. LOVED the China Doll girl...but could have waited for the dvd.

I've waited a couple of years for this movie to come out. I wanted to be the 1st person to see this movie. I took PTO on my job just to see this movie. I've seen an early screening of "Oz the Great & Powerful" at 8pm on March 7th, and I must tell you this is absolutely the very best fantasy movie I've ever seen! I won't throw you any spoilers. It was so incredible how they used lots of elements from the 1939 "Wizard Of Oz" movie to tie into this prequel. It all fits and makes since like a puzzle. Their was a lot of humor, special effects and action to keep your eyes opened and interested from the very start to the very end of this movie! There is even a joke within the middle of the movie for it not being a musical like the 1st movie. All actors done a terrific job especially James Franco. Didn't know Franco could be such a humorous actor! This movie is too great to watch as a DVD rental. You absolutely must see this movie in a theater in 3D as soon as possible or you may regret it!

Ozsome!

Did you like the film? I enjoyed this film immensely. I feel that it will become an instant Disney classic and that Oz fans will love it. What'd you think of the acting, directing, cinematography, writing, etc? For the most part, I felt the acting was very good. My favorite character(s) were Theodora/The Wicked Witch of The West, Finley and China Girl. Those were also Robert's (my boyfriend) favorite characters. And the stand-out character for me, was Theodora/The Wicked Witch of The West played by Mila Kunis. I enjoyed the cinematography and CGI that they used which was mixed with real sets. China Girl was definitely the highlight of the CGI and she looked absolutely beautiful. The writing/dialog was also very well done. Is this for kids, adults, any age? If your child can watch "The Wizard of Oz", then I see no reason why they can't see this film. Overall I give this film a 9/10 rating and highly recommend it.

Great Fantasy Story

Great story, stayed true to the original concept. Wove the creator's name into the story setting, by creating the BAUM Circus, added nice touches like the Cowardly Lion, Scare Crow and the TInkers who would eventually create the Tin Man. Very enjoyable surprise movie.

A fair and well executed prequel to The Wizard of Oz

By phrixion

I went into this movie with low expectations but left with a good impression. The environment of Oz was executed wonderfully. The set, backgrounds, CGI, and magical world of Oz over rides the character aspect of the story. Hence, the characters are difficult to hate or love, but rather just exercise indifference. The actors are talented, I just think the environment over powers the acting but that said, I was happy and impressed with the production. It starts off very differently and it is innovative in presenting a magical world. Though there are many nay sayers, this movie is not as bad as some say. Kids loved it, they were laughing and talking through out the film, asking questions. It sets the stage for The Wizard of Oz (which I hope Disney is working on a remake), and it was an over top, theatrical, film. I'd say, if you have to, go see it. It's not as bad as everyone says.
