Actually I fell asleep....we wasted our money!!! Bought tickets to see Imax-3D, but it was sold out and they bumped us down to just 3D. We were not the only ones this happened to!!! Bought them through FANDANGO! Next time I will buy them from the theater! Dissappointed!!!!

Going into this movie I had high expectations because I love "The Wizard of Oz", so this may be the problem here, but the people I went with had low expectations and it still failed to meet those. While the movie is visually beautiful the story line was just so-so. It's not engaging at all and the movie really never comes to life. It's a decent way to past 2 hours if you're at home watching it for free on HBO, but it is not worth seeing in the theatres for the price of the ticket.

I have to say as far as a family movie is concerned, I have not been in love with anything on the big screen in decades. This movie changes all of that for me and took me to exciting heights and heartbreaking lows. From ages 6 to 99 I would personally recommend this grand prequil. And most definitely urge anyone with children or without to not miss this epic presentation.

Alright, bad news first: The movie isn't as great for adults as I originally thought. Although it is very well cast, and the CGI is amazing, the story itself feels like it's dragged out, and the humor feels like it's trying too hard to be clever, yet falls short and ends up coming off as cheesy, instead. Perhaps I was just having an off day, but I couldn't buy the acting. It just didn't feel real to me.
All that aside, though, I could definitely tell it was a big-budget film. The cast was impressive, the CGI was amazing, and I could tell a lot of effort was put into putting it together. It's definitely tame enough to take the kids to, so if you have kids, taking them along would probably make the movie more enjoyable for you.

I went to the theater yesterday with my family, no body is happy. The movie starts so slow and with a 20 minutes long withe and black intro, then it gets a little better but any way it still boring. This movie is more for kids, but anyway too scary for the little ones. This was our experience watching it in 3D: my mother in law take a nap in the middle of the movie, my 4 year old son was too scared of evil monkeys and monsters, my 8 year old son told me twice "you choose the wrong movie" my wife said "it is too long" and I'm thinking that I wasted my money. BTW: it is the worst acting of Milan Kunis.
