OZ The Great ............... Disappointment
Took the wife to see this with hopes it would do justice to the original story The Wizard of Oz, unfortunatelly with all the improvements over the years with special effects, and even the acting being better these days, this movie doesnt even come close to the original 1939 movie. The movie itself did have a good idea for a story, on how the Great Oz became who he is, but unfortunately they went in a disappointing direction with even that. The choice of actors and actresses for the main characters also fell short, for a movie like this, they should have did a better job with their choices. I found myself and my wife looking back and forth at each other for the majority of the movie wondering when it was going to get good, as it just seemed to drag, but will say the last half hour did get alot better, but not near enough or soon enough for this movie to deliver, I myself would give this 2 stars, and unless ya have kids dying to see it, wait for the DVD ......... Enjoy :)
