Better than I expected and the visual side was well done too - from the cute creatures who lived with young Maleficent to the dark, thorny wall she let grow around her reign when her heart was broken. Also - SPOILER - the point of the movie wasn´t about romantic love but about mother love.
A bit unbalanced, but the great performances pull the movie through
LOVED IT! Wasn't expecting to love this gem, but was thoroughly impressed with the acting, storyline & film quality. 5 stars!
well crafted movie - better than expected.
A bit cheesy, but just the right amount in this surprisingly entertaining movie.
very well crafted movie based on a old time tale.
I was disappointed by it. I was expecting a more epic and sophisticated storyline.
I saw this movie twice and can't wait to own it. I loved the story line. It is a beautiful movie to watch. Both times I saw it, I cried.
This movie will only disappoint the worst of people. If your date doesn't like it, you should probably break if off as soon as you can! Extraordinarily beautiful with a completely unique grin-coaxing plot from beginning to end.
My husband and I saw it twice and will buy it. We loved the twist on "true love" at the end. Having met her for 1 minute, the prince could not possibly be Aurora's true love, but after 16 years, Aurora's love for Maleficent heals her broken heart. This really is true love and much better than the original story.
The best movie ever
Loved the movie. Angelina was amazing! 5 stars
The movie Maleficent met my expectations. This movie was very interesting- I love the way it was put together. I would not rate this movie 5-star, though. Maleficent was not the 'best movie of the year'. I would recommend this movie for people from ages 5-16. Adults may enjoy it, as well.
Not for everyone, but for those that don't look for te flaws or predictability in a movie will really enjoy it. Jolie was amazing, perfect in her role. Didn't want to see the movie, but really enjoyed it. Would see it agai without a doubt. I'm not a emotional, sentimental guy, but this movie really touched me
Excellent movie with great fx. Angelina Jolie was great but she is a little too skinny - perfect for the part, though.
A must see!! Loved Angela Jolie Empowering retelling of an old Fairy tale. I can't wait to see this again.
Awesome! Enjoyed this movie from start to finish. Angelina was amazing in this role. We were captivated through the whole time.
Things did not end so well for Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty, on which this film is supposedly based!
waste of time
Would see this movie again if i had to :)
Repetitious, boring, and the kids in the audience were yawning and asking how much longer before the movie was over. We went because we love Jolie but this was a real disappointment.
Angelina just can't act so special effects and make up have to bail this one out
Best movie of this genre since Avatar. Rarely will I consider paying twice to see a movie, but planning to do so again this week. If you soul can embrace the wonders of dragons, magic, fairies, elementals and such, then you will totally enjoy this movie.
LOVE LOVE LOVE. Those cheekbones!
Did not live up to the hype and a little corny.
A woman scorned... I wish we could see a movie with Angelina seriously evil. I thought Mal was supposed to be the most evil of the Disney evil people. What's with disney adding twists on true love. See Frozen, it was 2 sisters. See this and they start to lead you another way and bam it was something unexpected. Effects were good but Copley (played the king), is getting type cast as villans. (see Elysium).
Great special effects! Angelina is an excellent actress! Me, my hubby and two kids enjoyed it so much! My daughter loved it and can't wait to buy the DVD. Angelina's daughter is so adorable and beautiful like mommy.... I think that is Vivienne who portray the little Elle Fanning.
Angelina and Elle Fanning are such great actress! Angelina Jolie is awesome! Beautiful movie! Can't wait to buy it on Bluray. This movie is worth your money!
It is extreme disappointing. It is the same story i.e. true love lift the curse or the wrath, same as Christian theology. Too many movies to brain wash the public with Christians theology.
Loved it! It was super funny and many great action scenes :) Also love the Aurora/Maleficent relationship and Prince Philip was adorable! (is he a secret one direction member or something)
loved it!!! Angelina was amazing!
Wonderful visuals and acting .greta story twist
I like the hat Angelina wears in this; perhaps they will catch on...
If I had to leave half way through I wouldn't have been too sad. It was very slow. The visuals were fantastic which is why it's not getting a one star. People laughed during some serious parts. There were a lot of people bored. You could tell because there were a lot of people leaving to go to the bathroom. When the movie is awesome no one leaves, or talks - lots of talking and moving around.
I really looked forward to seeing it was very boring. You could hear and see the audience shuffling in their seats through most of the film. Costumes and set were great. It was just edited wrong or something. Save your money and rent it. Really.
This movie was supposed to be dark. What happened???
love this movie!!!!
The movie was absolutely fantastic. Everyone coming out of the packed theatre loved it. If you love the story of sleeping beauty, you will find the movie amazing. A must see.
loved the movie
We loved it. The grand kids loved it. It has been critized for having too many effects and not enough story. We all, heartily, disagree. Yes the effects are epic but they never take away from the power of the plot. Jolie was perfect in the role, and, in the crucial scene - her performance made me cry. And I'm the grandpa!
The movie is fantastic! Loved loved loved it. Angelina makes bad fairies have a heart. Great family movie. The special effects are awesome great story not what I expected.
good movie for children and adults who enjoy watching children's movies. I really liked it and rated it a 5 star and my hubby gave it a 3 star thus the 4 star. Many people clapped at the end of the movie
It's this year's Hobbit.
