Oz The Great and Powerful - 3D

High-Def Digest
11 June 2013
  • Conclusion: In my mind, there always will be only one 'Wizard of Oz,' but Disney's energetic prequel succeeds as a high-voltage kiddie action flick, nothing more. The rest of Sam Raimi's cluttered fantasy lacks whimsy and charm, and the entire enterprise is presented without much reverence or finesse. Though there's plenty of magic performed on screen, 'Oz The Great and Powerful' is hardly magical in tone or execution.

The not so good Oz The Great and Powerful – Michelle’s Review

Eclipse Magazine
10 March 2013
  • Excerpt: I’m not going to go on and on about how much I love The Wizard of Oz. All right thinking people love the 1939.  After the huge Broadway success of Wicked there was bound to be a modern film version that minds that well.  At one point there were several different studio versions of a Wizard of Oz prequel in production. First out of the gate is Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful . While the name implies grandeur and delight, the movie fails to deliver.

Oz The Great And Powerful

AV Club

  • Excerpt: It’s likely that director Sam Raimi sees some of himself in “Oz,” the circus-magician-turned-prophesized-savior in the Disney fantasy Oz The Great And Powerful : He’s a great conjuror of illusion, asked to marshal forces beyond comprehension, but he’s an outsider, too, a mischievous little rascal who’s used to doing things his own way.

  • Summary: Making a prequel to "The Wizard of Oz" takes courage and brains. This one's got a little of both, but most of all it has heart.

Oz: The Great and Powerful 3D

Flicks
17 June 2013
  • Summary: Great and powerful? More like merely good and enjoyable. Reining in his trademark dark excesses, director Sam Raimi’s prequel is both a satisfying set up to the 1939 classic and an appropriate homage. But while many modern audience members will be pleased that this is virtually shorn of musical interludes, it’s also light on lightness, save for James Franco’s near-permanent grin.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
7 March 2013
  • Excerpt: This prequel to the "Wizard of Oz" is full of mystery... the greatest being: why was it made? Special effects have come a long way, and "Oz the Great and Powerful" puts them to good use in a land saturated with colour, billowing landscapes and a yellow brick road with a 3D makeover. Hyper visuals are nice but this film needs more from its sweet story. The tale of redemption stalls, and non-human characters steal the show from the magician famous for charisma.
