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.

Great story, stayed true to the original concept. Wove the creator's name into the story setting, by creating the BAUM Circus, added nice touches like the Cowardly Lion, Scare Crow and the TInkers who would eventually create the Tin Man. Very enjoyable surprise movie.

I've read a lot of reviews stating "disappointing", "innocence lost" and other negatives but I don't know what these people expected. Judy Gartland reincarcated as Dorothy and the munchkins giving out candy in the audience? I found the movie entertaining and I'm glad I saw it on the big screen. The story was a prequel so if you thought it was supposed to be a remake of the original, you should have read about it and rented the original instead. Most of the acting was great though I also felt the male lead was a bit miscast. The word Depp comes to mind for a better choice but let's give someone else a chance. Mila was stunning as well as the other 2 witches. I did see 2 scenes that looked like they were green screened and that they could have been done by a home movie maker pertaining to the the takes where they were walking with the yellow flowers behind them. Looked like antique tech. All in all, a good film that made me feel like I saw what made Oz who he was in the original.

The movie was a little long and had a lot of down time (for little kids). The acting was great and the colors/graphics were amazing. However, overall, I thought the movie was a little more boring than I expected. Wait for DVD instead!
