The acting was so bad

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?

I left half way through

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

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!

A powerful adventure of the heart!

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!

A great prequel

Sam Raimi did a great job matching the flavor of the original movie. It's a welcome addition to the Oz story line and a great all-around fantasy film. The film runs a little long for young children and there are elements that can be extremely scary for them, but pre-teens and teens should enjoy the film along with the adults. It's not a perfect film by any stretch of the imagination, there are many questions that arise throughout the film, but if you just sit back and enjoy the film for what it is, you'll have a great time. James Franco is a great choice for the wizard and Mila Kunis is amazing, by far the best character in the film. The film is funny, touching, exciting, and wonderful. Go see it now!
