Well, after watching this disappointing movie, I know one thing for certain - Hollywood sure knows how to wreck an all-time classic tale of fantasy & adventure and literally reduce it to being an utter mess of forgettable redundancy, as well as being a hideous eyesore of gaudy CGI effects._____ Oz - The Great (!?) - The Powerful (!?) - Ha! That's a good one! I'd say that this film's title was everything that its story wasn't, and then some. This was the sort of film where if you were to fast-forward it all the way through you honestly wouldn't miss anything worthwhile._____ Besides the fact that this picture's story didn't contain even an ounce of magical charm, I also couldn't tolerate the unbearably annoying voice-over narration that dominated throughout._____ And even though Oscar Diggs (aka. Oz) was a slimy womanizer (even of virginal witches) and a despicable fraud, who actually came right out, publicly, and told one and all that he was nothing but a cheap, chiseling con man, the starry-eyed citizens of the Emerald City chose to ignore these glaring red-light warnings and blindly and unanimously voted him right into power. (Sheesh!) What a screwy political statement that nonsense makes!

Above average film, considering there really is nothing more to be said about the land of Oz and all its inhabitants, but I sincerely enjoyed the sweetness of this tale. Unfortunately, there are a lot of loose ends never properly addressed and James Franco seemed like a poor choice to play the Wizard, but otherwise, everything seemed to roll along with relative smoothness. Again, nothing groundbreaking, but there's definitely worse ways to waste your time. I'd recommend it.

An entertaining prequel story of how the great and powerful magician Oz came to live in the land of Oz as well as the story of what made a good character become the wicked witch of the West. Very entertaining.

It was pretty good, did not really care much for "Oz" However, I did like the China Girl and the special effects.

Horrible - basically all I could think when watching this movie was how CGI technology and Green Screen technology is at a much higher level than this.

The movie "Oz the great and powerful" was rated about Pg 13 but in reality it seems at times it should be about 16 and up. Overall it was a prequel to the movie "The Wizard of Oz". The movies relate to one another by the effects, and most of the characters. For example staying in black and white for the beginning until he gets into Oz. James Franco has also played in Spiderman, Spring Breaker, and also This is the End. Even though wizard’s character could have been played a lot better, but it is worth seeing for the other characters as well as the plot. The china girl and the monkey flin had to be the two most entertaining characters out of the entire movie. Throughout the movie a lot of special effects had to be used to create the entire setting and effects, especially in the major action scenes. The witches were amazing at their roles and I don’t think that they could have picked better people to play those roles. The movie also ends up being a bit of a love story in the end though because the main character is just into money and women for one reason, but the girls end up making him feel compassion and sympathy. So overall it is a really good movie to see with friends or your significant other, but I wouldn’t consider it a great family movie especially if you have little kids under the age of around 16.

An above average family fantasy film. The effects are incredible. Everything else is mediocre. Still, dang does it look good. Look at the pretty colors!

It wasn't wonderful but it was good and fun.

This Disney movie is based off of the traditional “Wizard in Oz” tale by L. Frank Baum. The story follows a young circus magician named Oscar who unwittingly finds himself cast into the whimsical world of Oz. As the circus magician travels through the magical world, he comes across a young witch named Theodora. Theodora is immediately captivated by Oscar and allows him to kiss her, but all is not what it seems when the couple (finally) arrive at the Emerald City. After a conundrum with one of Theodora’s sisters (Evanora), Oscar tries to escape Oz, only to find that escaping is not exactly possible. With the help of a few new friends, the circus magician is eventually able to set things right. All in all, this movie is not enjoyable. The main character is an absolute slime ball, and spends the majority of the movie jumping from sister to sister, trying to get into each of their pants. He treats the characters who are not one of the sisters like his personal servants, and Oscar is constantly more concerned about himself than any other character. There is meant to be a development of Oscar’s character as the movie goes on (he is meant to become kind and generous), but it never happens. Theodora is an incredibly lovable character though, and you will find that your heart goes out to her. She is probably one of the better aspects of “Oz The Great and Powerful”. It is unfortunate that this movie has such clumsily written characters and a hole-riddled plotline, as “Oz The Great and Powerful” does have some better aspects. The music is elegantly composed, and many of the visual effects are outstanding (however the brightly coloured and somewhat eerie Oz does begin to become tiring by the end of the movie). The last fifteen or so minutes of the movie is probably the most interesting and exciting bit of “Oz The Great and Powerful”. It is unfortunate that Oscar is such a slimy character, as he makes the movie inappropriate for the intended age-range (twelve and under). If Oscar’s character was written differently, this movie would be a great thing for younger children, as the amazing special effects and bright colours are right up most of their alleys.
