Wizard of oz Gives a background story about how the wicked witch became who she was

Maybe... I was disappointed with this movie to be honest. I had high expectations for it because it is a Disney production and a spin-off of The Wizard of Oz. However, it just seemed a bit foolish and not really engaging.

Magical I'm a huge fan of anything Oz so I had a high expectation going in. It was a phenomenal portrayal of each character and new ones. I loved it.

I greatly enjoyed this movie. I thought it was a very interesting and different take on things. It was entertaining and I actually liked it more than the original Wizard of Oz.

"Oz the Great and Powerful" movie review This movie doesn't fail where its story is concerned, it fails with the actors. James Franco is NOT, we repeat, NOT Oz. Rachel Weisz is usually always a dependable actress, but in this, there's something about her performance that's annoying, but not nearly as annoying as Mila Kunis'. UGH. Could she scream any more in this movie? It's fine to scream and yell, that's sort of the idea with a witch character, but it is possible to scream and yell without being grating, shrill, and displeasing to the ear. Visually, this is a very pretty movie with bright and lively colors throughout. That being said, the organic items in the Land of Oz, such as flowers, the monkeys, etc, look extremely digital and cartoonish, while the inorganic items, such as China Girl, and the Emerald City, look very realistic. We are disappointed in this film as avid fans of both Sam Raimi and "The Wizard of Oz." We're not sure what we expected, but this wasn't it.

Great animation! Acting was good could be better though. Costumes we're awesome. I wouldn't buy it though but might watch if it's on tv.

I love the original wizard of oz. This movie really brings to life the life of the witches with a twist in the plot . You could not ask for a better sequel to the original. All the actors did a amazing job !

me and my husband love that movie we enjoy everytime we watch , the scene when they change to black and white to the colorfull is amazing , we love the movie

I love James Franco but this movie was boring and the plot was unbelievable . Good for younger kids but not interesting enough for adults

It gave me a new view in the Wizard of Oz. The movie it self did not go well in my household. We were all a bit disastified and thought it was not that good.

I was not a fan of this movie. Probably because I not only didn't enjoy James Franco's acting, but little things in the movie that bugged me added up, and I didn't end up liking it at all.

Great classic turned into an interesting and intisive twist. My toddler loved it and was nice to be able to enjoy a movie we both could watch and not expect what the movies plot turns into.

I could not get into the movie at all. It was a really big let down since I was hyped for this movie. Either way James Franco could have done way better, and Mila Kunis was not really into her character either. First Disney movie that has disappointed me.

This movie was nothing like the original. It was a bit dark at times. The acting wasn't that great, however the characters where lovable.

It was ok, but I guess I expected better! If you leave out the expectations it could be good!
