Great Special Effects - Storyline Shabby,
This review is from: Oz the Great and Powerful [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I must admit as far as special effects and taking advantage of the latest cinema techniques goes then this is a wonderful movie which I would recommend is best viewed in 3D.
With regards to the story being told it's well very simplistic to say the least because if I'm being brutally honest with you here the story was waferthin with little to no surprises being delivered. I bought this DVD on a whim based on some very good reviews but like so many have already pointed it lacked any kind of substance and I was also glad when it was over.
If you want to see a decent Oz movie then I'd recommend Return To Oz. If you want to see a great visual spectacle then this is the one for you. I have given it 3 out of 5 and that's only for the amazing special effects and great attention to detail. Pity the story didn't quite match the look.
