I've read a lot of reviews stating "disappointing", "innocence lost" and other negatives but I don't know what these people expected. Judy Gartland reincarcated as Dorothy and the munchkins giving out candy in the audience? I found the movie entertaining and I'm glad I saw it on the big screen. The story was a prequel so if you thought it was supposed to be a remake of the original, you should have read about it and rented the original instead. Most of the acting was great though I also felt the male lead was a bit miscast. The word Depp comes to mind for a better choice but let's give someone else a chance. Mila was stunning as well as the other 2 witches. I did see 2 scenes that looked like they were green screened and that they could have been done by a home movie maker pertaining to the the takes where they were walking with the yellow flowers behind them. Looked like antique tech. All in all, a good film that made me feel like I saw what made Oz who he was in the original.

Was expecting entertainment - but this movie never quite gets there. The story is quite predictable - i realize its a prequel, but the story as a whole was not interesting.

Loved this movie! Every minute was wonderful. My only complaint would be that I thought I bought the 3D version. I will have to go see it again in 3D format. I was confused when I bought the tickets, and a bit mad that I really wanted to see it all alive.

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.

Ok, I wasn't the old version remake but I liked it a lot! I lived the china doll and the friendly monkey. The Glenda Good witch didn't seem to be the best actress but of spite of that I really liked the movie! My little girl lived it. Scary enough to be exciting for her and not scary enough to give her nightmares. I would even see it twice!! Love it love it!!!
