Last weekend the highly anticipated new Disney movie “Oz The Great and Powerful” opened at theaters nationwide, and no one was more excited to see it than me, aside from being a huge Disney fan, I am also a HUGE Wizard of Oz fan!
The movie itself is a prequel to the classic Wizard of Oz movie, and it explains how the great Wizard came to Oz and saved it’s people from the Wicked Witches. James Franco stars as the Wizard, but the REAL stars of the show are the witches
Mila Kunis as Theodora who makes quite the transformation into a Wicked Witch
Their costumes and makeup were beautilful and visually the whole movie was amazing, it was definitely a movie that was made to be enjoyed in 3D
The movie looked great, but unfortunately, the acting and story were not up to par. Personally, I was really disappointed with the movie, and would only give it a 3/10. The first hour was painful, slow plot and horrible acting, and it’s saving grace was that in the second half of the movie, the action picked up and you didn’t notice the bad acting (as much).
Perhaps I was expecting too much? Not sure, but I would love to know your thoughts – did you see it? What did you think?
