Few movies are worth the added cost of 3D, but Oz totally was. We saw it in Imax 3D and it was worth the extra cost. The story is good and harkens back to the original movie without being too cheesy. It's a great family choice.

The 3-D special effects were cool but the movie had no plot. There were parts that were leading up to suspense but then it big effect never came. Was very disappointed that I went to see this in the theater. It would have been good enough for a Redbox rental. The movie was just overall.... really lame for all the major hype.

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.

I'm a fan of James Franco and MIla Kunis, so seeing this movie seemed like a sure bet. Glad to find I wasn't disappointed. The movie was well acted, the secenery/special effects beautifully done and the storyline didn't veer away from the original. Some of the scenes might be a little too intense for the younger ones but for anyone 12 & up, a truly enjoyable movie experience.

We took our grand daughters to see OZ last weekend.They are 7 and 5. The beginning is not appropriate for children under the age of 11. It is dark, scary, loud, violent and altogether unfit for viewing by young children.
The movie is rated PG. I would caution that discretion be used when deciding if the movie is appropriate for viewing by young persons. The original OZ movie was quite scary in parts. This rendition is no different. Having seen both productions, I would caution that this movie is a great deal more unsettling than the prior version.
We left the theater well prior to the conclusion. The Industry should rethink the rating given this movie. PG 13 would be much more appropriate.
