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.

Miss this but see the original and /or Wicked

Fell asleep. Special effects were over the top. So was Franco's over-playing his role. How come Glinda had no-lingering effects of being repeatedly zapped with green lightning? Oz mugged like he was going for a cross between Clark Gable and Gene Wilder. Overall, it seemed like a high tech melding of The Wizard of Oz and Wicked but with none of the charm and none of the great music...

3D Great & Powerful OZ

Loved this movie! As good or better than the original Wizard of Oz. Fantastic colors, sets, characters, and costumes. Great for all ages. Followed the original storyline fairly well. Well worth the extra money to see in 35mm 3D. Five stars.

CG was excellent

We were a bit disappointed in the acting. The CG was excellent. Story line a bit boring. Definitely geared towards children, however, some of the big monkeys might scare a young child. Definitely not Oscar material but could win awards for the CG

Great movie on it's own!!

I am a big fan of the '39 movie, if they ever try to remake it, it will never compare. But i am also a big fan of the books written by L. Frank Baum. (not all the crazy ones that were written by others after he died) If you are a fan of the books, you will like this movie :) There are lots of little things taken from the books and trying to figure out what they are makes the movie that much more fun to watch! The scenery is beautiful, the baboons are scary & the witch is evil!!! What more could you want?! The 3D special effects are fun, if at times a little woozy making. It was very fun to watch. The story was good & i liked the dynamics between the 3 witches. On it's own, it's a great film, but you have to be able to separate it from the '39 film, if not, you won't like it. Give it a chance, you won't be sorry!!!
