From the opening credits to the end notes the visual effects are quiet impressive. Many of the scenes in OZ are breathtaking. Although the storyline may be a little "stretched", all in all it was a tale well told and easy to follow. And YES some of the flick may NOT be suitable for the young ones (not to many). Do go especially if you love Disney, 3D, and/or fantasy.

This movie is so boring, I left in the middle. The acting was mediocre at best. Not even the 3D effects can save it.
My recommendation is to save your money for another movie. This one isn't worth it.

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
