Poor acting, poor dialog, and poor use of 3D effects...what a shame! The concept was good, but the execution was disappointing. I left the movie in crappy mood. Not worth the price of the popcorn.

This movie was too long. I didn't like the romance between Oz & Glinda. The CGI was excellent! I just wish I hadn't paid extra for IMAX.

We were expecting an amazing movie. We were not impressed. Too bad. Wait for the dvd, unless you are bent on the 3D experience.
The main characters acting is awful.
The 3D and CGI are great.
The story makes sense, but will not blow you away.
could have been so much better.
wait for the DVD.

We took our 6 year old girl with us and we all loved it. We did IMAX 3D. Not sure why it is rated PG13. I was a little leery after reading some of the reviews, but I forgot those guys who write reviews for a living are all idiots that only like tedious movies that win "best picture" but no one goes to see. If you like fantasy, special effects and to be entertained, you will enjoy this movie. If you go looking for Oscar worthy acting, you're in the previously described category with the professional "reviewers".

Oz The Great and Powerful was great movie! Great cast (James Franco is wonderful as Oz/Oscar Diggs). The story is also very good with some thrilling moments (The Witch's transformation, the flying baboons, Oz's arrival). My favorite character was Finley as he bought a lot of humor. I also loved how the beginning was in black & white and then into color. With wonderful 3D, wonderful cast and characters, and a wonderful story, Oz The Great and Powerful is a great beginning to The Wizard Of Oz!
