Having been going to movies for years, I wasn't really expecting a solid family movie with Oz. Yes, it was rated PG, but surely there was going to be something inappropriate for the kids. That's not the case though. This is a great family movie and it really stayed consistent with the original Wizard of Oz movie. I highly recommend this movie for Families with young kids (8 and older). There are some scary parts in it, but I would argue that they are really no more scary than the original Wizard of Oz. This is a fun movie for adults as well since it makes you remember the movie that you grew up watching once a year every year when you were a kid. Go, watch, and enjoy!

Awesome special effects! I thought it showed a great success at a prequel. The subtle ties to the original were awesome. Those flying monkeys...eeeek!!! Loved it Loved it Loved it

Took my Grand kids, ages 9 and 15 and they both loved it - was a little long and dragged somewhat in the middle but excellent family entertainment. Had to buy my Granddaughter the China Girl Doll afterwords, they are very hard to find.

I enjoyed the movie very much. Watching it in iMAX 3D is always a visually stunning experience. There times that James Franco played his part a little "campy", but hey, he was a con man. The two newest characters, China Girl and Finnley were a welcome addition to the story. They each brought there own spin to the story. It was nice to have the illusion of how everything started prior to Dorothy showing up.

The Effects were incredible...
May be a bit to much for younger children (say under 13-14)
Seen it in IMAX 3D and regular 3D...
IMAX is the way too go ~ It's worth the extra few bucks if you have it.
Now if they would just get WICKED on the Big Screen!
