Oz The Good and Entertaining

Oz The Great and Powerful has great things going for it. The visuals were vibrant and beautiful.The CGI is really good. This movie has the best use of 3D I've seen outside of an animated film (better than Avatar). It's worth an IMAX 3D ticket. The supporting actors (especially the CGI characters) are excellent. Their dialogue, believability, and comedic relief are top notch. They make this movie very playful and fun! So what's not so great? The main characters. Their acting, dialogue, and interactions come off as acting 101. There is very little character development. Franco's character comes off as one dimensional to a fault. Mila Kunis is not believable in her role at all. It's a shame that the main actors do not capture the whimsy of the original Oz movie. Despite this, this movie is worth seeing. Just don't expect a masterpiece on par with its inspiration. There are no scenes during or after the credits. If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back

Great 3D Effects

I'm not sure if it will be the blockbuster they're hoping for but then I thought John Carter would be successful... Anyways, a bit slow in some parts but overall a good movie with sometimes great scenery. I enjoyed the cast--especially the good flying monkey. I do recomend it for kids and families although the flying baboons are pretty heavy monsters. Strong suggestion: See if the theater has regullar, square lensed 3D glasses. The "cool" special OZ glasses are round and made my eyes hurt. Luckily I had a regullar pair of glasses and it made a big difference.

Better Than Expected, 3D is a MUST!

Seeing that Oz is sacred movie territory, my expectations were high. I was not left disappointed. I could not imagine watching this movie in standard viewing. There is so much to take in viewing it in 3D. Just as the original was a breakthrough for color movies, this prequel delivers in Oz fashion for 3D. I love the way the format mimics the original, yet remains independent for younger viewers who haven't grown up with the Wizard. The intro, (Black and White), is a little long, but I appreciate the back-story it creates. The overall storyline does an excellent job of entertaining while tying in perfectly as a prequel for the original Oz.

The movies had surprises, adventure. It was so colorful and beautiful you wanted to become part of the movie, because the people were nice, and it would be nice if that was how the real world was. Fun picture for the family one witch was a bit scarey.

Oz Great and Powerful

Loved the movie. It revives the beloved Wizard of Oz that I have enjoyed for so many years. Great effects and the 3D was the best I have seen in a long time. Answers a lot of the questions we all had about how the witches and Oz came to be. I would highly recommend it.
