Al's Review of Oz the Great and Powerful
A dazzling treat for the eyes and ears. A tremendously entertaining and eye-popping great time. A glorious, magical and spectacular adventure classic. A beautiful and enchanting re-interpretation of the classic tale that's filled with great special effects, wonderful characters, thrilling action and dazzling humor. It's a must-see that will engage both kids and adults. It is a solid and compelling prequel, showing how Oz arrived to the kingdom and how the witches came to be the chilling characters that they are. Director, Sam Raimi's finest film to date, he adds his classical twist of direction in the piece and gives it great range. A visually gorgeous and outstanding masterpiece. It's stunning, epic, hilarious and tremendously exciting from start to finish. It's a sheer roller-coaster ride of non-stop fun and thrills. A movie that delivers such heart and soul with its characters and it has no problem pulling you in. An astonishing all-star cast. James Franco is sensational. Zach Braff is excellent. Michelle Williams is magnificent. Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz are outstanding. This movie is too much fun to pass up and just gets better as it moves ahead.
