The most colorful movie you could see. The story makes me want to see The Wizard of Oz all over again. Loved the witches.

Really enjoyed this movie. I understood that this was a prequel to the Wizard of Oz so I knew it wasn't a remake. The storyline was good and I really liked the scenery and characters. Worth the time to see it.

Thoughtful and exciting prequel to the Judy Garland film. Nice job establishing how familiar characters became who they are in the classic musical adaptation. Unlike Disney's dark and moody \"Return to Oz\", this film plays into audience's expectations while still finding ways to surprise.

Boring! Set your alarm for 2 hours and ********** the end.

I thought it was pretty good. Nice to see a movie for a change that I don't have to cover my ears (profanity) or eyes (sex). Franco is very handsome, which doesn't hurt.

The film is stuffed with three endings too many. You can't blame Raimi for wanting to give us our money's worth. But after a while, you just want him to get to the Happily Ever After already. Full Review
This trip isn’t so notable. It’s not bad. Some bits are enjoyable. But ultimately, other than some genuinely impressive visuals, it never makes a compelling-enough case to justify its existence. Full Review
Oz the Great and Powerful tells the story of how the Wizard came to Oz, answering a question I suspect no one was asking, but with considerable digital wizardry. Full Review
An amorphous melange of ill-fitting reference points and misappropriated aesthetics, a lumbering family blockbuster both tiresome and wholly indistinct. Full Review

Don’t be fooled by the smoke and mirrors. There is nothing here that is great, or powerful. Worst of all, there’s nothing here that even feels like Oz. Full Review
