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.

Oz, the Great and Powerful 3D prequel to the one with Dorothy, is pretty much all that until about five-eighths of the way through when everyone sort of loses interest and kind of shuffles around in metaphysical 2D existential symbiosis until the last ten minutes or so when they all suddenly remember why they are making this movie: FRANCHISE!
Also, I thought Munchkins had "no tall people" in Oz's CC&Rs. Must have come later.

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
Its Disney, its nostalgic,its kid friendly its magic

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!

3 amazing women, a fine supporting cast and quality special effects do not make up for the fact that James Franco does not have a lick of acting ability. I'm hard pressed to think of a worse choice than him.
