Maleficent (2014)

Maleficent (2014) Movie Reviews

Review Roundup:

Unfortunately the narrative in the "overproduced" Maleficent is "weak" and "empty inside." Leave your "desire for a well rounded" story behind and enjoy the "simplicity" of the "weirder," "disturbing" scenes and "lush" fairy-tale world. Jolie is "quite good" as the "icily beautiful" lead.

    The kind of movie that keeps you glued to the screen. Angelina Jolie acted the part to perfection. I don't know how she did it but her role was amazing.

    It's a unique take on the Sleeping Beauty fable. Angelina Jolie's character is marvelous but at times overpowers the story. She is imbued with such god-like powers and occupies so much screen time, it can take one out of the fantasy.

    Watched again, and while the weakness in most of the characters' development still bothers me, Angelina Jolie is just SO good, and it's the development of her character that matters most. I'll upgrade to B minus or C plus.
