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.

This movies was great! The special effects with the 3D is awesome, made you feel you were right there! If you loved Wizaed of Oz you will enjoy this, Wicked Wiches, Glinda, Munckins, flying monkeys and MORE! Loved the China Doll, she was great!

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.

Amazing! Wonderful! Incredible! Just got back from watching "Oz, The Great and Powerful". Such a fun movie! I loved it! I knew I would. So colorful and the story line filled in what was missing from the original movie back in "39. We watched in XD Real 3D. Worth seeing it again at the theater.

I enjoyed "Oz" although it didn't have the level of "fun and wonder" that I expected.
The characters were well played and the visuals were great.
It could have used a couple more songs, and the one by the Munchkins shouldn't have been cut short - it was great!
The "more for adults" theme was fine, and since most of it was "implied" kids will be fine with it.
The 3 D was excellent albeit short in some sequences.
I recommend OZ for an enjoyable experience.
