      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It suffers from some tonal inconsistency and a deflated sense of wonder, but Oz the Great and Powerful still packs enough visual dazzle and clever wit to be entertaining in its own right.

      Jenny Catchings Bitch Media Make no mistake, Oz the Great & Powerful a beautiful film... But any true weight of vacancy rests in the script itself - and no feats of acting could have fundamentally changed this trap. Jan 14, 2021 Full Review Larushka Ivan-Zadeh metro.co.uk With flying monkeys, Yellow Brick Road and sequin-spangled witches all faithfully reproduced, it's impossible to see this as a standalone film, given it looks like an HD colouring book version of the original movie. Rated: 3/5 Sep 5, 2017 Full Review Wesley Morris Grantland The twister that comes to whirl Oscar into Oz is so preordained you could find its departure information and flight time from an airport travel board. Jan 3, 2014 Full Review B.L. Panther Paste Magazine Today, Oz the Great and Powerful boasts collective and equal distaste among audiences and critics alike, which suggests that there’s something to be resisted within the film. Rated: D+ Oct 2, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review The result isn’t bad and incites the intermittent chuckle, but it ultimately fails to fill The Wizard of Oz’s shoes. Rated: 2/4 Sep 12, 2022 Full Review Don Shanahan Every Movie Has a Lesson When it comes to modernizing the world of a beloved old classic, just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Rated: 2/5 Apr 14, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Estuard F Una de las mejores películas infravalorada por ser original acerca del mundo de Oz y tener una estetica que envejece muy bien Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/22/24 Full Review Mark B Overall a satisfying watch for the family. The special effects are wonderful and at times not very good. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/19/24 Full Review isa e Lots of continuity errors particularly with Mila Kunis in beginning, one scene lipstick is perfect, next cut, none, pretty pedestrian affair Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/09/24 Full Review binh q how was this not considered a masterpiece? An elegant and brilliantly written and casted prequel-sequel. It captures the spirit of the original and tells an immaculate origin story superior to all the corny superhero stories told by other Disney features. The various supporting characters are filled with personality and Franco is at his best. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Mu S Além de ser um remake desnecessário, tem uma trama pretensiosa e não traz a essência do original (nenhum filme irá conseguir isso). Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 10/15/23 Full Review Albino V This was a great movie with a fresh view on a old time classic! I wish there was a sequel!
