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

Oz The Great and Powerful #D - Not Worth the Money or Time

What a total and complete waste of time and money. Even youngsters will find it difficult to sit through! Poor acting. Franco at his worst. Story line non-existent. Special effects limited. There was no need to make it or see it in 3D. Would have walked out, my took a group of younsters from my community so we sat through it with alot of shuffling in our sears, taking bathroom breaks, etc. Two of the kids felt asleep. Others were reading their smartphone messages and surfing the web. I usually don't condone these phone behaviours in a film house but the film was totally mindless. Way, way off the mark.

Great 3D Effects... (Not So) Powerful Pace

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!

3D Pushes the Envelope - Visually Stunning!

By SALandis

From the beginning one realizes this isn't yesterday's 3D! Perhaps even more so than the color portions of the film, the B&B 3D (at the start) was remarkable if for no other reason than one is not so distracted by the amazing colors later. During the remaining pumped-up color scenes the 3D was spectacular although I felt the backgrounds fell a bit flat. The story is fun if a bit different than expected based on the "original" film. Given its length, I'm not sure much more could be done to create more interest in the characters; perhaps this will wait for the next release (spoiler alert:) since there is a witch waiting to come back! Overall I'd say this is a very good film with excellent visuals including the monkey and baboons. I don't believe I'd necessarily take children under say 10 but the scary scenes are reasonably light and brief. Go see this movie. It was fun!

This review is on the 3D aspect of the movie.

First, let me just say that if I was rating the movie itself, I would've rated it a "Go." With that being said, here is what I thought about the 3D aspect of this movie. This movie is meant to be seen in 3D, period. It was that good. Sam Raimi intended the audience to watch it in 3D, and it shows throughout the movie, with well planned camera shots and angles. Not only is the use of depth present, in scenery and landscapes, there are also plenty of "pop-out' moments. It's not in the sense of things coming within arms reach of the viewer but in the sense that you can tell the objects are flying off screen, or sometimes at you, adding the "before the window" dimension to the film. At times it even felt like I was on a ride. There were no problems with the brightness either. I was able to make out everything in the movie. Overall, I think it's definitely worth the few extra dollars to see this movie in 3D. No question. I actually want to see it again!
