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.
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 her 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.Read more ›
I was a bit dubious about this film to begin with as I had heard it was quite dark and some of the scenes had hidden meanings, and although it is dark in places, aren't most Disney films. I think Bambi, in particular, has stayed with me for life!!
Angelina Jolie is just superb and she does a very impressive English accent. Young Aurora is played by her real life daughter which is so cute, especially when she hugs her mummy.
I love how she calls Aurora little beastie, but you can see the little princess melting Maleficent's cold heart, it really does have touching moments.
I really liked seeing how Maleficent can't help but bond with the princess and Angelina really does an excellent job of showing these emotions of how she should detest this little beastie, but she can't stay away.
My 5 year old loves this film, we have watched it many times together and never tire of it.
What Disney did was to retell the classic in such a magnificent way as to make you never want to watch the old one again. Maleficent is our horned fairy who is basically good. Both her and plot develop levels of complexity that is not the norm for children's film. There is a role reversal as good and evil blur lines until the point we root for those we had desired to fail in the original tale.
Jolie was great in a role seemingly made for her. Elle Fanning would not have been my first choice, but she was sufficient, perhaps over shadowed by Jolie. My favorite line was when Jolie said, "I don't want children." Sure you don't, Angelina.
There is an underlying theme that perhaps our enemies aren't so evil once we see the world through their eyes. This is a kids film that adults will love. Indeed, I felt like I was eight years old munching on my popcorn, chasing it with Metamucil.
The language is G rated. The PG comes from battle scenes and some dark scenes. Comparable to "Narnia" or "Alice in Wonderland."
