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.

Very well made and entertaining. Some what long- could have cut about 20-30 minutes from the film to make it better. Story wasn't too much and writing seemed a little week. Good casting- especially Michelle Williams and Zack Braff.

This is a very entertaining money...we would HIGHLY RECOMMEND all to see. 3D excellent. Don't think small children would be scared. We saw a boy around three and he seemed to enjoy the movie.

I don't really recall the trailers marketing this for kids, but by the end, that's kind of what it seemed like. It got a little too cutesy/corny for me by the end. Visually it was great, but I feel like it was lacking a few key elements to make it a really amazing movie.

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...
