I really enjoyed it -- FAR more true to the book than the old movie. As an adult I really enjoyed it. But if you have kids it is really a steallar piece to chat about after. It lets kids see that "good" or "bad" is something quite different than just waht someone may say. What things may have tipped Oz off that Theodora & her Sister may not have been as 'good' as they wanted him to think?

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.

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.

I expected more from this movie spacial because of just the title alone, OZ. The movie was very poorly made, Graphics were to fake looking, out of place in a sense and the acting was unrealistic as well. I believe i enjoyed only one sense in this move and it was a very short one. I say wait for this movie to be put out on some media platform if you must see it, and save your money for a better movie that is playing in a theater.

Some reviewers said they were disappointed because of "adult humor". Besides the comment about the sock being on the door (which wasn't that bad because there was nothing really going on), there wasn't really any adult humor that I noticed.
Was it as good as the original? Let's get serious! The Wizard of Oz is a classic and no one should be expecting this movie to compare to it. It was however, a very enjoyable movie to watch. My children loved the monkey, the munchkin named Nook, and the china doll characters. They were the real comedy in the movie.
It might not be the reincarnation of the Wizard of Oz, but it was a fun night out. I will be buying the movie on Dvd so I can watch it with my family again.
