What an amazing film and a nice twist on the classic Sleeping Beauty story - well the events before Sleeping Beauty. Angelina Jolie is magnificent as Maleficent and I loved her "little beasty" saying and the interaction between Maleficent and Aurora. The parts were Aurora is little and Maleficent is meant to hate the little girl are pure film genius and I didn't know until the other day that the baby Aurora is actually played by Angelina's own daughter as all the other babies were scared of her in her Maleficent make-up and costume. An absolutely fantastic film and if you are wavering about watching it then I would highly recommend it. Disney have made yet another superb film that had me laughing out loud at some parts and totally engrossed in the whole film.

The 3D version is fantastic and I can thoroughly recommend it and so would definitely say it is worth getting the 3D version as opposed to the normal 2D version if you are able to. Not only do you have the normal 3D effect whereby the characters on the screen stand out within the screen against the background but there are lots of points within the film whereby the 'true out of the screen and halfway across your living room 3D effects' come into play and the picture quality is superb.

A truly brilliant and cleverly thought out film that is one of the best films I have bought and watched this year.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this film and how Angelina Jolie would do playing Maleficent; if I would be able to see past her stardom and appreciate the character but you absolutely do. Angelina’s performance is astonishingly good and Maleficent is a feast for the eyes as well as having a cracking story line too, based very loosely on the story of sleeping beauty.

This really is a great family film; appealing to adults and children alike; a hard feat but seemingly easily achieved with this film.

Whilst the theme can be some dark and desperate at times there are plenty of humorous moments and again Angelina Jolie is absolutely perfect in this role. A great watch, I would go as far as to say one of the best family films we own. Highly recommended.

Wonderful story and excellent 3D. I won't say about the story line as don't wish to ruin it but will review graphics instead.
The quality of the graphics are brilliant, the colours are rich and vibrant, and the 3D adds an extra depth which is well appreciated. The soundtrack is good quality too and pitched correctly.

"Let us tell an old story anew and see how well you know it." This is the opening line of "Maleficent", a re-imagining of the story of "Sleeping Beauty", as presented from the standpoint of the wicked fairy who casts the sleeping spell. The hex is one made by a woman scorned and, according to this revisionist fairy tale, soon regretted. So many times fairy tales do not transfer to the big screen without becoming Disney-esque. "Maleficent" aspires to be about how, no matter how evil someone might seem, there is something deeply hurt and human inside. Our sympathies lie with the benevolent-turned-malevolent heroine, and as the story progresses, more surprises and twists are to be found.

Maleficent constantly has to fight against her own bitterness and disappointment, being physically and emotionally crippled. Betrayed by her loved one, and the assault of having her wings cut-off, transform Maleficent from a villain into a heroine, and turn the film into a revenge story with a feminist undertone. Every subsequent action Maleficent takes is driven by the trauma of this betrayal. As an evil creature and a woman with magical powers, she could easily wreak havoc on humankind. However, misunderstood by humans, she seeks isolation and has contact with only one person, who knows her as the brave and kind soul she really is.

Admittedly, director Robert Stromberg had quite a challenge on his hands, transforming a character into someone contemporary audiences could identify with. Reinventing a fairytale, in an attempt to bring fresh life to a well-worn fable is a demanding task. There is so much to look at in the movie, and for the most part Stromberg maintains a balance between the spectacle and the intimacy of the story.

As far as I'm concerned, the best recent fantasy movie based on a classic fairy tale is, by far, Walt Disney's magnificent production of 'Maleficent', which was released into the cinemas last year. If you think that you already know the old saga of 'Sleeping Beauty', then this excellent movie delivers a few interesting spins that will be new to you, least of all, by focusing on the villain of piece we are able discover Maleficent's background, and how she came to be the fiercely bitter and vengeful character we are all familiar with.

In this untold story, we discover the betrayal she suffered at the hands of the future human king, when she was a young fairy, and the one-day ruler of the beautiful moors of which she still resides at today. We are able to learn how this cruel act of treachery turned the character's heart to stone for the rest of her life, and resulted in her bestowing that evil curse on her arch enemy's new-born infant daughter Aurora, ensuring that the little girl wouldn't awaken from her sleep when she pricks her finger on the needle of a spinning wheel on the eve of her sixteenth birthday.

Beautifully portrayed by the stunning Angelina Jolie, I found myself, ironically sympathising with the so-called villain of our picture, as we see her gradually won over by the grace, beauty, and kindness of the innocent young princess (played by Elle Fanning), and in the aftermath of the curse, appears to have a complete, genuine change of heart over what she did to her all those years ago.

Very loosely based on the tale of 'Sleeping Beauty', this visual masterpiece has enough charm, laugh-out-louds moments, and stunning special effects to delight the children, but enough sophistication and drama to also become a firm favourite with the parents as well.
