Definitely one to watch in 3D but the storyline isn't overly strong. Not recommended for kids under 8yrs old (unless quite used to scarier type themes) but overall an enjoyable watch. Lots of cool colours and great effects.

Oz the Great and Powerful started in Kansas, in black and white and in old television aspect ratio in a world where the Oscar the Magician was not appreciated. But then he did nothing to warrant appreciation either.
Then the aspect ratio grew into full HD with colour that almost hurt the eyes when you first beheld it.

The witches were dazzling and the sets amazing. Countless perfect extras and CG creatures were designed flawlessly.

James Franco does not do the character Oz any favours. He did not have the comic timing where it was needed and wasn't very believable. But for him and I would have given it 5 stars.

I enjoyed this, it was a bit slow to start off, with around 1/2 hour being in black and white. Once it gets going it is not too shabby. There were a few giggles here and there otherwise it is pretty predictable storyline. Good Verses Bad. However, I am glad I went and saw it.
