Oz Falls Short of Magic

The CGI, stunning, and 3-D unlike I had ever seen before. China Girl, was my fav character in the movie, and she deserves an Oscar for her performance. I fell in love with this adorable, little orphaned child made out of china, right down to the clinking sound she made whenever she blinked or moved her joints. I must also mention the comedy in the film took away from the story line, and cheapened the movie a bit. I don't mind a little creative humor to captivate the audience, however, it became a bit corny, and distracting after awhile. It was sort of akin to what Scary Movie, was to the original Scream movie. Michelle Williams,was by far the best actor in this movie, and believe she carried the other character's weaker performances. I would have liked Glinda, a little more glamorous, and regal as was the original Glinda. Mila Kunis, as WW of the West-disappointing.. She wasn't believable as a WW. Her face-- too round, and voice sounded like she had a sinus infection.

Great film and special effects

I saw this film in IMAX 3D. When I saw the first part of the film, I thought that the film was one of those films that wasn't really made for IMAX but the theatres just wanted to make more money. I was pleasantly surprised when the film got to the second part because it took full advantage of the IMAX 3D experience. This film is the prequel to the original Wizard of Oz as it traces the story of Oscar, a carnival magician who gets away in a balloon when he crosses (accidentally) the Strong Man. He gets caught in a twister (like Dorothy did in the original Wizard of Oz). The IMAX journey begins when he arrives in Oz and traces the story as how he becomes the Wizard of Oz and how the other characters came to be. The acting was great, the 3D experience was awesome and there were some parts that can make you jump out of your seat. There were some parts that, I felt, would be too scary for kids under the age of 10, but, otherwise, it's a good film for the family.

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.

My 6 year old daughter and I loved it! I honestly don't know why people are giving this movie such a hard time? It was magical, funny, and WICKED! We found ourselves laughing, crying, and even jumping with fear! What more could you want?! I def wouldn't recommend it to small children though. 6 years and up

I did not know what to expect but would go see it again just for the effects and the way the movie brought you in. I felt like I was in a different world. So beautiful! Even without the storyline I would have enjoyed it. Loved it!
