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 loved the graphics and all the bells and whistles. The storyline could have been better. The witches power wasn't in her necklace in the original wizard of oz. it was in her ruby red shoes that the farmer chick landed her house on. The wizard wizard was less than expected. I was hoping he would somehow be great and powerful, but all he wanted was some ass. The final scenes of the movie was good though. If you loved the Wizard of OZ, you must see this movie. I just wish they would have followed the original storyline more.

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.

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.
