I set up an account just so I could warn you about this movie! It looked good on the previews, but we only stayed 40 minutes then had to walk out due to the really terrible acting. Maybe it gets better after the first 40 minutes... but that seems doubtful to me. If you have very little kids who dont mind terrible acting, maybe it's ok. But if have any desire to avoid really terrible acting.... here's a movie to avoid. Did I mention terrible acting?

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!

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 film surprised me with its depth, deep emotion, great acting, exciting and compelling story. I honestly can say that my eyes "leaked" a few times or yes, I cried. I also exulted in excitement and enchantment and was surprised a few times, even disturbed, because the film does not spare us from the true nature of humans which means you feel the sadness, fear, jealousy, hurt, yet exultatation and excitement of the journey and some special moments of good, hearty, honest laughter. The special effects are dazzllng and totally work to tell the story. Now I know how the wizard of Oz came to be and I am glad for this worthwhile telling of his story, along with some shocking and revelatory moments regarding the 3 witch sisters, too! Go and see it: feel a myriad of emotions, be touched and don't be ashamed to shed a tear or two and be dazzled!

Although the movie had some corny scenes, I have to give it 5 stars. You have to expect that in movies like this when you an adult. I found it mesmerizing and so fun. It was a great escape from my every day life which is quite stressful. The acting was great and the visual effects were better. I went to a newly renovated theater in my neighborhood and they had full reclining lazy boy type seats and it was the best experience ever. See the movie!
