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.

The movie was slow and a bit drug out in the black and white section. I thought the acting sometimes was a bit "lacking".
The movie is a MUST in 3D. I think in regular viewing it will be less than par. BUT, I am a wizard of OZ fan so, I loved it just for that.

The land of Oz- oh how we missed you. Bright,beautiful,well paced and charming is all I can say. Is it perfect ? no Is it worth a go to see it on the big screen ? definitely

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.

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!
