OZ the Great & Powerful

It was good, the special effects were great, was disappointed in the story line and the witches. Mila just did not have it to be a witch nice or not. And Glinda was not elegant as you would have thought she would be. LOVED the China Doll girl...but could have waited for the dvd.

It was ok

The beginning was pretty drawn out and very boring. The story was good but it was slow in some parts. I wouldn't see it again...didn't blow my hair back.

Great Fantasy Story

Great story, stayed true to the original concept. Wove the creator's name into the story setting, by creating the BAUM Circus, added nice touches like the Cowardly Lion, Scare Crow and the TInkers who would eventually create the Tin Man. Very enjoyable surprise movie.

A fair and well executed prequel to The Wizard of Oz

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.

Oz the Great and Not So Powerful

I found this movie to be a little less than I had expected, it would be unfair to compare it to the original because it is not a remake, it is a prequel. ... As a prequel it had a good story line, but for me it was just a so-so movie, that is only my opinion ... I would not discourage anyone from going to see it, and judging for yourself ... The best thing about this movie is that anyone of any age can go and see it, no cursing, no nudity, and very little to frighten you ... Some of the special effects seemed to blur in and out causing a little dizziness trying to keep everything in focus ... Maybe the special effects would have been better in 3D...
