Neither great nor powerful

sreekirch, FilmCrave
28 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Neither great nor powerful enough, but it has the heart at various points and the ultimate humor that works on to entertain for the final act. Director Sam Raimi, introduces the film with old and classy way , then suddenly bedazzles with rich colors and the land of Oz. James Franco was almost wasted for most of the film, with gimmick tricks , slapstick humor and most of all an idiotic and silly characterization.

OVERRATED

  • Excerpt: The video and audio are absolutely stunning, as usual for a current Disney release. However, the 3D is anything but! There's too many times that the background "layers" simply look like layers. They have no dimension, except for being further in the distance and further from each other. Very much like a "pop-up" story book. I was VERY disappointed. (Disney's conversion of Beauty and the Beast is better.) I didn't notice any cross talk on my system.

GREAT and POWERFUL

Rod, FilmCrave

  • Excerpt: A circus magician named Oz destined to be a hero to another world finds himself on such dilemmas in an adventure which both overwhelms him and him overwhelms the others. It is now his trick versus the great and powerful magic of the fantasy world. *** First thing, I am not really sure if I liked the idea of opening sequences, especially the transition from a black and white, square frame to a wide screen colorful world of Oz.

Raimi should stick to Evil Dead & Spiderman films

Lee, FilmCrave
13 March 2013
  • Excerpt: To see this on the big screen enhances the spellbinding sets and cgi that were used within this film however that being said sadly was all to look forward too. I am still shaking my head to people that are comparing this to the Victor Fleming directed 1939 original starring Judy Garland, either stating that it was just as good or if not better!! There should be no comparison of the two cause they are night and day in my opinion.

Oz Lost Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Lauren, FilmCrave
12 March 2013
  • Excerpt: "Oz The Great and Powerful" is one of those movies that gets reviews with extreme range. Some have said that the audacity of anyone to take on this project doomed it from the start. Others will go on and on about how beautiful and magical it is. I sit squarely in the middle. The Good: The World of Oz: Is gorgeous. Sam Rami was inspired when he created his version of the World of Oz. It is a gorgeous technicolor dream with nearly flawless CGI work.

Review: Oz the Great and Powerful

MikePA, FilmCrave
10 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Being that The Wizard of Oz is one of my all-time favorite movies, I was a bit skeptical about Oz the Great and Powerful when I first heard about it. I was happy to see Sam Raimi (Spider-Man and Evil Dead trilogy) on board to direct the film, but I was curious to see if he'll manage to sustain the magic and the wonder throughout like The Wizard of Oz beautifully did instead of going all dark and edgy like most movies nowadays. The trailers had me hopeful.

Oz Manages to Be Pretty Good, Not Quite Great

Chris Kavan, FilmCrave
10 March 2013
  • Excerpt: I said before I watched this that I was getting the same kind of vibe that I got from the Alice in Wonderland remake. I have to say, I think my initial assessment was spot on. Oz the Great and Powerful is a visual treat, full of color and amazing effects. It also serves as an adequate setup to the classic Wizard of Oz film. Where the film stumble is that the acting is a mixed bag and the film stretches things out a bit too long.
