I went into this movie with low expectations but left with a good impression. The environment of Oz was executed wonderfully. The set, backgrounds, CGI, and magical world of Oz over rides the character aspect of the story. Hence, the characters are difficult to hate or love, but rather just exercise indifference. The actors are talented, I just think the environment over powers the acting but that said, I was happy and impressed with the production. It starts off very differently and it is innovative in presenting a magical world. Though there are many nay sayers, this movie is not as bad as some say. Kids loved it, they were laughing and talking through out the film, asking questions. It sets the stage for The Wizard of Oz (which I hope Disney is working on a remake), and it was an over top, theatrical, film. I'd say, if you have to, go see it. It's not as bad as everyone says.

The name of my salon is Wicked so I am a real fan! But this movie was terrible. Not even worth a Redbox rental. Could have been a great movie but they blew it.

I rarely get up and leave before a movie is over-it has to be pretty bad and this one qualified. Total waste of time, poor screen play, poor acting yikes...I guess the 10 year old might be able to stomach it I couldn't

This movie dragged. I spent the first half hour wondering when it was going to pick up and another fifteen minutes wondering what other things I could be doing if I wasn't watching this movie. Sometimes I get the feeling Hollywood has decided that if they throw in enough visual effects they can forget about story.
Walked out on this one about 45 minutes in. Decided there were better things to do with my time.

What a complete disappointment! Combination of bad acting (not to mention bad casting), less than appealing costumes, weak storyline, & not-so-stellar 'special effects' made this one of the worst movies I've seen in years!
Not sure why this movie even happened. Save your time AND $ for something worth seeing!
