I don't get what people's complaint about this movie is... I read the reviews and thought it was going to be boring or weird. It was really a GOOD movie and just so cool. Yes some of the acting wasn't the best especially by mila kunis, and im not sure why they keep putting her in movies because she really isn't good at all. I don't normally like james franco but I will say he did a good job in this movie, as did michelle williams. The extra characters like the monkey and china doll were SO cool. the china doll was so adorable and cute as was the monkey was so sweet and funny..this movie has it ALL...ACTION, entertainment and even comedy...it was just GREAT. yes some of the character development wasn't there along with story development..it all just happened so fast, however, it was still a VERY entertaining movie. the set/scene was of course spectacular....there was NOTHING boring about this movie....it was in fact just an unraveling of INTEREST...funny and cool movie, don't miss it

It provides a cool background to the Wizard of Oz and has plenty of funny moments with James Franco. The video effects are also really cool...especially going from black and white to color transition

Overall, a 'not-bad' movie. I left a little disappointed hoping for a more realistic experience in terms of special effects and cinematography. I really did not connect with James Franco or Mila Kunis playing Oz or the Wicked Witch of the West. Comparing this movie to the first Pirates of the Caribbean, I felt like it did not live up to the standard that Pirates set.

I was so excited to see this movie that I even purchased, for the first time ever, my tickets in advance.
It had a very slow beginning, I didn't think Franco was that good of an actor. Thank goodness the witches were AWESOME! There were some touching scenes but no tears!
Ending was very good compared to the rest of the movie!

I liked the movie a lot, but it was a little slow getting to the good stuff. I kept waiting for them to tie in the ruby red slippers since they were so important in the original Wizard of Oz but they didn't. So I wonder if they will remake the Wizard of Oz and continue this story. I did like how they showed how the Green Witch was created. All in all it was a good movie!
