The effects were great. The characters were very memorable. Children of all ages will enjoy the magical adventure to Oz. The story linked most everything from the original Wizard with Judy Garland. The only thing I didn't see was the story behind the "Ruby Slippers".
I will buy the DVD when available and enjoy the movie again and again.

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.

The acting was sub-par, the casting was horrendous and the effects were less than stellar. 1/4 of the way through I told my husband how disappointed I was in the movie. And that attitude never changed. I was all set to LOVE this movie, being an avid Oz buff....but this just didn't do it for me. The story line was rushed, as if they were just trying to get all the characters introduced quickly so they could get on with it and meet the next character. The dialog was rough and uncomfortable, the natural, believable flow of conversation was not there. You never got lost in the movie, you were always very well aware that these were actors playing a role--they reminded you at every turn.
This is the FIRST movie that I've ever been so disappointed by. I might suggest it for a (much) younger crowd of elementary school kids because they're the only ones that don't care about the actual acting, but the story itself wasn't very good either!! Ugh. What a waste of time and very underwhelming.

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

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,
