Beautiful colors and landscapes, visually appealing throughout. The movie was good - a couple of surprises, some adult sarcasm thrown in for comedic relief. Overall a good movie, and if you are going to see it, spend the extra money for 3D on this one!

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.

Disappointing, This is definately PG. Good for kids. if you are looking for action, or anything exciting, this does not have it. No part of it is truly scary or thrilling. It comes off long and slow. The 3D effects are there but its hardly worth wearing glasses for. The occasional Falling snow flakes is really all I remember. I was ready for the end

I will give this movie 5 stars. Excellently done - the special effects were incredible (I liked the 3D effect - had never seen that before). The closeness to the original was a nice touch - the actors did a wonderful job. The colors were incredible - this movie will definitely become part of my DVD collection when it comes out. I know my grand kids will love it. My girl friend and I went and saw it and she had seen a review that gave the movie a C-. well folks I am going to give it an A+. The people in the theater ranged from probably 7 years of age to over 70 years of age. And everyone absolutely enjoyed it. If you are a WIZARD OF OZ fan this is a must see movie,

I've waited a couple of years for this movie to come out. I wanted to be the 1st person to see this movie. I took PTO on my job just to see this movie. I've seen an early screening of "Oz the Great & Powerful" at 8pm on March 7th, and I must tell you this is absolutely the very best fantasy movie I've ever seen! I won't throw you any spoilers. It was so incredible how they used lots of elements from the 1939 "Wizard Of Oz" movie to tie into this prequel. It all fits and makes since like a puzzle. Their was a lot of humor, special effects and action to keep your eyes opened and interested from the very start to the very end of this movie! There is even a joke within the middle of the movie for it not being a musical like the 1st movie. All actors done a terrific job especially James Franco. Didn't know Franco could be such a humorous actor! This movie is too great to watch as a DVD rental. You absolutely must see this movie in a theater in 3D as soon as possible or you may regret it!
