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!

This movie was great! Seeing it in IMAX 3D made me feel like I was in the Emerald City. It is a movie for all ages. Great date night with my hubby of 25 years!!

The strength of this movie is absolutely the stunning visuals. It was made to be seen in IMAX 3D. Yes, the acting is great - (although James Franco's "Oz" did come off as a bit flat at times, and overplayed at others) - and the story was good - (the handling of the fate of Chinatown was confusing and cold) - the visuals are the star of this show.

If you want to know the turth about who the great oz is then go see this movie. The acting could have been better but the story was good and the CGI was increditable the best I have seen.

One would make the assumption that an actor that can act against a green screen must really know their craft. But that doesn't hold true for Oz The Great and Powerful. Saw it in IMAX 3D and while images were stunning the plot was terribly slow. James Franco was not great, or mediocre as Oz... He was flat and stiff in his characterization. Mila Kunis seemed to be in a trance until she became green, Michelle Williams was "too good" to be true and Rachel Wiez wasn't mean enough or scary enough to be wicked witch. Overall I would say wait til this comes out on the Disney Channel and save the $$$
