Oz the Great and Powerful Movie Review

unbox.ph
10 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Unbox Rating: 4/5 Although you don’t really classify the Wonderful Wizard of Oz as fairytale, it does establish itself in the echelons of the Classics. I mean who hasn’t heard of Dorothy and the odd-group pairings of the Cowardly Lion, The heartless Tin man and the Brainless Scarecrow? And what witch hasn’t gotten the stereotypical look based from the Green-skinned Wicked Witch of the ...

Film Review: Oz the Great and Powerful

FilmJournal
6 March 2013
  • Excerpt: The Library of Congress has named the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz the most-watched film in movie history. So the Disney prequel Oz the Great and Powerful inherits massive brand recognition, an asset that’s also a huge liability in terms of audience expectations. This mega-budget production...

Oz The Great And Powerful

Empire Online

  • Conclusion: If there are post-Harry Potter children who don’t know or care about The Wizard Of Oz, they might be at sea with this story about a not-very-nice grownup in a magic land, but long-term Oz watchers will be enchanted and enthralled. There’s even a musical number, albeit an abbreviated one. Mila Kunis gets a gold star for excellence in bewitchery and Sam Raimi can settle securely behind the curtain as a mature master of illusion.

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.

Oz: The Great and Powerful

  • Excerpt: Historien om ”Trollmannen fra Oz” byr på fart og spenning, men har langt fra den samme sjarmen som klassikeren fra 1939. I tillegg er noen av scenene skikkelig skumle.

Oz: The Great and Powerful

Gamereactor

  • Conclusion: Da Sam Raimi var 22 år gammel og lige havde udgivet kultgyseren Evil Dead, virkede det usandsynligt at han en dag ville instruere en familiefilm. Ikke bare det, men også at det ville være for familiefilmens mester, Disney. Efter at have lavet den ekstremt lukrative Spider-Man trilogi for Sony viste han sit værd som leder af en multimillion dollar produktion, men Drag Me To Hell fra 2009 gav mig personligt indtrykket af, at han ville vende tilbage til sine gyserrødder.

Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)

9 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Het is de een van de ultieme klassiekers uit de filmwereld: L. Frank Baums ‘The Wizard of Oz’. Het fantasierijke verhaal van het meisje Dorothy dat met haar hondje Toto via een wervelstorm in het Land van Oz belandt en daar niet alleen bijzondere figuren ontmoet, maar ook leert inzien dat het thuis toch eigenlijk best wel fijn is, spreekt nog altijd tot de verbeelding.

  • Summary: Troldmanden Oscar Diggs, eller Oz som han kalder sig, arbejder i et omrejsende cirkus i Kansas i 1905. Han er en egoistisk, indbildsk svindler, men samtidig fornemmer man, at han har et godt hjerte. Oz er en dygtig illusionist, men det hjælper ikke meget i hans fejlslagne forsøg på at forføre en pige, og han falder i unåde hos tivoliets “Stærke mand”. Midt i balladen kommer en voldsom tornado, og Oz sværger, at han vil være et bedre menneske, hvis han overlever.

Oz – The Great and Powerful

Nöjesguiden
13 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Dreglet rinner när Oz (James Franco) når platsen ovan regnbågen. Den dittills svartvita bilden, presenterad i kvadratformad academy ratio, breder ut sig till en färgstark panoramavy över den technicolor-värld som vi först lärde känna i Victor Flemings klassiska film. Sedan torkar det tyvärr i mungiporna, för knappt hinner Oz kraschlanda med sin luftballong innan äventyret bryter ut i spänningsfattiga transportsträckor.
