Must See

I absolutely loved this version of the Wizard of Oz. Since I grew up watching the original over and over, I felt this version had big shoes to fill, but I was not disappointed! It puts a whole new perspective on the story behind the wizard and I felt that James Franco did a fantastic job playing the wizard, and all of the actresses were great for their parts also. I laughed and cried and wanted to go watch it as again as soon as it was over. I will definitely be looking forward to the release on dvd!

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.

So disappointed...

The acting was sub-par, the casting was horrendous and the effects were less than stellar. 1/4 of the way through I told my husband how disappointed I was in the movie. And that attitude never changed. I was all set to LOVE this movie, being an avid Oz buff....but this just didn't do it for me. The story line was rushed, as if they were just trying to get all the characters introduced quickly so they could get on with it and meet the next character. The dialog was rough and uncomfortable, the natural, believable flow of conversation was not there. You never got lost in the movie, you were always very well aware that these were actors playing a role--they reminded you at every turn. This is the FIRST movie that I've ever been so disappointed by. I might suggest it for a (much) younger crowd of elementary school kids because they're the only ones that don't care about the actual acting, but the story itself wasn't very good either!! Ugh. What a waste of time and very underwhelming.

Oz The Great and Powerful #D - Not Worth the Money or Time

What a total and complete waste of time and money. Even youngsters will find it difficult to sit through! Poor acting. Franco at his worst. Story line non-existent. Special effects limited. There was no need to make it or see it in 3D. Would have walked out, my took a group of younsters from my community so we sat through it with alot of shuffling in our sears, taking bathroom breaks, etc. Two of the kids felt asleep. Others were reading their smartphone messages and surfing the web. I usually don't condone these phone behaviours in a film house but the film was totally mindless. Way, way off the mark.
