This movie was awesome in IMAX 3D, but it would have probably had been ok in digital. James Franco was very funny, graphics were good ( somethings looked fake), and I jumped so much because things were popping out at you. The only thing that I had to complain about was Michelle Williams acting. She was nothing like Glenda on the original.

I took my 13 year old daughter & we both LOVED it!!! It was very entertaining and kept you waiting on what was going to happen next. Very Good for any Wizard of Oz fans!! Saw it in IMAX, Wondeful Color, Special Effects & Sound.

I will be the first to admit I'm not a huge Oz fan. But, I thought the special effects looked promising, so decided to see it in IMAX . The movie was okay, but I don't think I could say the same if I'd seen it in a regular theater.

This was a pretty decent movie. I must say I am a James Franco fan so he could be in any movie and I'd enjoy it! Didn't realize it would have humor too, so that added to its rating being so high. Saw it on IMAX 3D was really cool. Definitely a lot more great effects in this one that made it good for the whole family, though maybe younger children could be afraid of the monkeys (like the ones in the original Wizard of Oz many, many years ago).

The move is absolutely fantastic. For the best experience, I recommend seeing in IMAX 3D. My son and I went to see and we both loved the file. It repects the work of the original Wizard of Oz movie while creating an abosultely wonderful new OZ experience. One can enjoy the film for the film itself or for its many underlying themes and witty humor. Ultimately, the message that I took away from the film is that anyone can be great and achieve great things in life if they simply believe in themselves and have faith and trust that anything is possible if you just believe. In addition, although it is not always present and many times seem not so, goodness and truth will always prevail of evil and deception. This is a must go, must see movie that sets itself up very well to be a prequal of a future Disney remake of the original Wizard of Oz movie for today's audience and technology but not to take away from the great classiic of the original 1939 film.
