Oz, the Great and Powerful 3D prequel to the one with Dorothy, is pretty much all that until about five-eighths of the way through when everyone sort of loses interest and kind of shuffles around in metaphysical 2D existential symbiosis until the last ten minutes or so when they all suddenly remember why they are making this movie: FRANCHISE!
Also, I thought Munchkins had "no tall people" in Oz's CC&Rs. Must have come later.

I have been waiting for this movie for months and was at the first local showing. It's a good movie and the 3D effects are awesome. But, the pace of this story-driven movie was a little too slow for me; the back-story for the Wizard of Oz is now filled in. Based upon the trailers, I was expecting a faster paced movie and a little more action. Still a good movie and I think the kids will love it!

Great movie and not just for kids. I especially liked the monkey voiced by Zach Braff. It was cool to see what they came up with for the back story of the wizard and the three witches.

Beautiful colors and landscapes, visually appealing throughout. The movie was good - a couple of surprises, some adult sarcasm thrown in for comedic relief. Overall a good movie, and if you are going to see it, spend the extra money for 3D on this one!
