Audience Reviews for Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return

  • Oct 01, 2014
    Based on a children's book written by the great-grandson of L. Frank Baum, Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return is a whimsical fantasy adventure. When the Land of Oz is threatened by the Wicked Witch's brother, the Jester, the Scarecrow, Lion, and Tin Man attempts to bring Dorothy back in order to help them. With an all-star cast that includes Lea Michele, Dan Aykroyd, James Belushi, Kelsey Grammer, and Martin Short, the voice performances are pretty good. And, the musical numbers are fun and exciting, featuring songs written by Bryan Adams. The animation however, is rather poor; particularly the character movements. The script is also problematic, with a weak B story dealing with the Tornado aftermath in Kansas. Yet despite its issues, Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return has a bit of magic and is an enjoyable family film.

    Legends Of Oz is miraculously creepy for a kids film. The design is utterly lifeless and the villain is terrifying. Easily the worst animated film of the last three years, Legends of Oz is stuffed with stock characters, ugly animation and a boring plot that is sure to have one running to the better animated films of the year, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Mr. Peabody and Sherman, and The Lego Movie to wash the stink. Rating: 26
