Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

Critics Consensus

While it's far from cursed, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil too rarely supports its impressive cast and visuals with enough magical storytelling to justify its existence.

In Disney's "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil," a sequel to the 2014 global box office hit, Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that bind them as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies and dark new forces at play. The years have been kind to Maleficent and Aurora. Their relationship, born of heartbreak, revenge and ultimately love, has flourished. Yet the hatred between man and the fairies still exists. Aurora's impending marriage to Prince Phillip is cause for celebration in the kingdom of Ulstead and the neighboring Moors, as the wedding serves to unite the two worlds. When an unexpected encounter introduces a powerful new alliance, Maleficent and Aurora are pulled apart to opposing sides in a Great War, testing their loyalties and causing them to question whether they can truly be family.

  • Maleficient: Mistress of Evil could certainly be worse, but that does not make it a good movie either.

    January 29, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Pfeiffer, as usual, is magnificently portraying the not so innocent and kind-hearted queen.

    January 10, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • These elements give the movie a nice shine, but when you bust out the polish to make your shoe look pretty, it doesn't make a difference if the sole is missing.

    January 10, 2020 | Rating: Catch It On Cable | Full Review…
  • Mistress of Evil is simultaneously overdone and undercooked, with a lot of the customary mistakes of giant studio entertainment.

    December 20, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…
  • Maleficent 2 is weirdly memorable with strange visual choices, great costumes, and two true movie stars giving each other the stink eye.

    December 19, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • ... a feast for the senses and the mind in terms of pure fantasy and imagination... buries significant character opportunities, as if the writers were tasked to combine three different scripts that defied being strung together.

    A marginal improvement over its predecessor. Jolie and Pfeiffer are fun but these movies ring hugely silly.
