The sequel, however, is thankfully an improvement over the poorly-executed first movie, thanks to the more experienced director Joachim Rønning.

Pfeiffer, as usual, is magnificently portraying the not so innocent and kind-hearted queen.

Maleficent 2 is weirdly memorable with strange visual choices, great costumes, and two true movie stars giving each other the stink eye.

Truth is, if Disney had a little more guts, they would have made this a trilogy, and given it the care that other major fantasy epics receive.

Once the battles get going, the film is really pretty exciting.

It goes down easy, thanks to a colorful palette and Woolverton's refusal to soft-pedal the nefarious lengths Queen Ingrith will go to carry out her anti-fairy agenda.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is pure magic! A visually and emotionally exquisite tale that is simply beautiful.
November 3, 2019
It has moments that will bring the audience from laughter to tears all while rooting for kindness and justice to prevail.

When Pfeiffer and Jolie are together in a scene, it is absolute fire. The icy glares, the shade, THE CHEEKBONES... this is what I came to see.

This movie is wacky.

This Maleficent might be far from magnificent, but as a fractured fairy tale, it mostly gets the job done.
October 25, 2019
Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning shine in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, a sequel that surpasses its predecessor with exciting action, an interesting story, and good visuals.

Just a good old fairy tale with no political overtones. The kids sitting behind me clapped when it was over (in a good way). Plus the battle between good (Jolie) and evil (Pfeiffer) entertains the adults.

Mistress of Evil is a decent enough sequel, though it's less magical than the first installment, which, admittedly, blew my mind.

This is an original sequel despite its imperfections. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's a movie that feels at war with itself, but when the right side breaks through, it can be something beautiful, like the film that came before.
October 21, 2019
With widespread death and destruction, this fairytale costume drama is by no means a child's play. However, it has enough live-action magic to bring the big screen alive.

The sequel has bigger things on its mind - racism and the distrust of foreigners, ecological disaster, warmongering, gender stereotyping - but the bit that stays and thrills is the continuing tenderness felt by a witch for her ward.
October 21, 2019
It's got everything you'd want to see in a dark fairy tale - evil witches, sorcery, and jaw-dropping visual effects.
October 21, 2019
It's a visually gorgeous movie...Unfortunately, the rest of the film is a muddled mess.
