This movie is so wonderful and pretty funny also and there are some scary parts in this film because Sam Raimi directed all some horror movies. Sometimes, but it's still pretty cool.

Visually beautiful, very imaginative, and exciting for a majority of the time, yet there are a bunch of flaws. My thoughts on this movie are pretty mixed-to-positive.

Doesn't do much to stand out and far from as magical as the original trip to Oz, The Great and the Powerful looks good, but fails to charm.

Oz the great and powerful is pretty good, Sam rami elivated the movie and made it much better even though his casting choices were pretty bad

Visually was awesome. Was a tad predictable but good acting and solid casting in my book. Except for mila kunis as theodora, not a great wicked witch.

The visuals are spectacular but the film feels a bit flat, picks up in the second half though which saves it from being rubbish.

It's no "The Wizard of Oz". It's "The Spider-Man 3 of Oz".

While it tells an interesting story of how The Wizard came to be, it lacks almost all magic from the classic film.

Great story for the prequel to The Wizard of Oz!
Wasn't sure how it was going to pan out but I really enjoyed it.
Glad it was a lengthy movie too.

Great movie but the original wizard of oz was by far better

The opening twenty minutes lead you to expect great things from Sam Raimi's Oz back story. James Franco is an appealing lead, the production design is good and (after an opening in B&W Academy ratio) colourful. But as soon as the vapid and wanly-acted witches appear the movie loses its way and becomes a chore. A shame.

Oz the Great and Powerful is visually wonderful, but never establishes a consistent tone from which to tell its already-shallow story.

This wasn't awful. Pretty entertaining actually

The original movie was better than this (much much better)

Es entretenida a momentos, a veces se siente larga y lenta, los efectos visuales son buenos, me parece chevere que al principio fuera en blanco y Negro y luego a color igual que The Wizard of Oz, los personajes son buenos, pero a veces James Franco y Mila Kunis se sintieron exagerados, el final fue agradable de ver con una buena conexión con The Wizard of Oz

Oz the Great and Powerful is a visually stunning adventure that is actually worth seeing in 3D. James Franco pulls off an outstanding performance in the role of the man who would become known as...The Wizard of Oz and the film even makes references to the classic 1939 MGM movie more than once. Such examples are the movie going from black and white in the beginning with an aspect ratio of 4:3 to full colour with an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 widescreen and a cameo appearance from a lion whom we can only presume is the Cowardly Lion. Overall, this film is a witty film that ought to please fans of the original movie even if it can be a bit dark and scary at times.
