This is a really good movie. You hardly know the two hours have passed. There are parts that are a little scary for really young children and the 3D is a little blurry at times if you're too close to the screen. So you definitely want to be watching from back a few rows.
I really liked the story. I was wondering how they were going to relate this back to the classic story, but they made it a prequel that fits perfectly.
Go see it, you won't be disappointed.

I enjoyed "Oz" although it didn't have the level of "fun and wonder" that I expected.
The characters were well played and the visuals were great.
It could have used a couple more songs, and the one by the Munchkins shouldn't have been cut short - it was great!
The "more for adults" theme was fine, and since most of it was "implied" kids will be fine with it.
The 3 D was excellent albeit short in some sequences.
I recommend OZ for an enjoyable experience.

I really liked the movie. The 3D was pretty awesome! The costumes & makeup were phenominal!!This movie had a good guy, bad guy and a love interest!! Very kid friendly. The cinematography was excellent, I wanted to stop the movie and rewind, so that I could re-examine the film and identify what I missed.

This is a great movie for all ages. The motivating theme is that OZ has an intense desire to be GREAT. He initially believes that he can only achieve greatness by fooling and cheating people. When he ends up in OZ, he discovers that he can achieve GREATNESS beyond his wildest dreams by accessing his good side.
It's a memorable movie that includes important moral values and life lessons. Destined to become a classic, it's a must see...especially since it's in 3D and plays well on the big screen.
The movie is true to the original, starting out in black and white, and finishing in color. The special effects are wonderful, and you can easily see where Disney is going with this when they introduce it to their theme parks. ...Lots of fireworks and 3-D Holograms that will make for great rides, shows, and evening entertainment.
I recommend it highly.

Disappointing, This is definately PG. Good for kids. if you are looking for action, or anything exciting, this does not have it. No part of it is truly scary or thrilling. It comes off long and slow. The 3D effects are there but its hardly worth wearing glasses for. The occasional Falling snow flakes is really all I remember. I was ready for the end
