This movies was great! The special effects with the 3D is awesome, made you feel you were right there! If you loved Wizaed of Oz you will enjoy this, Wicked Wiches, Glinda, Munckins, flying monkeys and MORE! Loved the China Doll, she was great!

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

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.

Tediously long, and, with the exception of Rachel Weisz, atrociously acted. This movie stunk, even from a "family film" perspective.
Don't waste your money -- see it on TV if you have nothing else to do. The "experience of the theater" did nothing to enhance this film whatsoever.

I will give this movie 5 stars. Excellently done - the special effects were incredible (I liked the 3D effect - had never seen that before). The closeness to the original was a nice touch - the actors did a wonderful job. The colors were incredible - this movie will definitely become part of my DVD collection when it comes out. I know my grand kids will love it. My girl friend and I went and saw it and she had seen a review that gave the movie a C-. well folks I am going to give it an A+. The people in the theater ranged from probably 7 years of age to over 70 years of age. And everyone absolutely enjoyed it. If you are a WIZARD OF OZ fan this is a must see movie,
