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

If you want to see an exciting movie full of action and special effedcts then definitely see "Jack the giant slayer".
Oz was slow, and extremely boring in parts and the acting was second rate except for Glenda the good witch.
I didn't like Oz being portrayed as a womanizing cad who would jump on anythng that was still breathing.
Save your money unless you can get a senior mantinee like I did for $4.25.

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 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!
