The entire film was mesmerizing! I loved the actors, the sets and the costumes. It was true to the original, but even better in many ways.

Visually good, substantively awful

The acting, story line, and pace were not good. Mila Kunis did a good job, but the rest of the cast and the story were completely forgettable. This movie was a waste of time and money.

A Fun Trip Down Nostalgia Lane

By Swash9
Written March 28, 2015
Oz The Great and Powerful was good for all its nostalgia and vibrant colors and effects, and that's what I liked most about it. I found myself almost crying when I saw Glenda, grinning from ear to ear when the Munchkins came out, and when the Wicked Witch was borne into existence I felt chills go down my spine. But James Franco is a real clown in this movie, and always seems to have one of three expressions on his face: Cheek-stretching cheerful, brow-furrowing serious, or terrified and screaming. For a moment I could see him as Oz, but then he started speaking, and almost everything he said made me want to slap him and say "You are not Oz. Give me the real Oz." Though the supporting actors and actresses, namely Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams, were nothing short of amazing and believable. Go for the nostalgia, be prepared for a few bad actors like James Franco and Mila Kunis, and you'll enjoy the FX, the splendor of Oz and have a good time like I did.

Oz was ok - but you can wait until it comes out on DVD

This movie was just so-so. It was slow in the beginning and grew more interesting later on. Still there was nothing about this movie that made it a must see at the theater. The story was predictable. The effects were good, but then that much can be said about many movies. Overall I would say don't waste your money.

It was not that good!! I was looking forward to this movie for so long and I'm so disappointed about how fake it looks ... Upset at Disney for letting this come out..... over all the actors and actress are great. Just graphics was bad !!! So sad.
