I'm surprised by some of the negative reviews here. It was a good movie. An entertaining story about how the witches and Wizard came to be. Worth seeing.

It was not that good!! I was looking forward to this movie for so long and I'm so disappointed about how fake it looks ... Upset at Disney for letting this come out..... over all the actors and actress are great. Just graphics was bad !!! So sad.

The film itself was an interesting idea, being told from the wizards perspective, with a few literary differences. I didn't really like some of the actors, thought their performances were a bit lazy.

I bought tickets for Oz for our entire family, 7 of us! We were all really excited to see it, previews looked great! Up until the middle of the movie it was slow, punchlines not well thought out & it didn't capture us like we had planned. My father fell asleep & had to wake him up just as he started to snore. Just seemed a bit hokey. And I think we sat through 7 movie previews before the show even started!! For the adults, not like the original, for the kids, they liked it. See it or not, or wait until DVD.

The story-line was good, but the screenplay, acting - except for Rachel Weisz, and directing were aweful! Whoever did Casting should be fired! A good start with design, but no follow-through. For general audiences, as a last resort for those who need to keep busy.
Disney does animation very well, but did fail to convincingly transition this fantasy into entertainment.
