In terms of 3D, wow! Go and watch it in 3D! It is the very essence that we expect of 3D movies. Projectiles flying by you and barely skimming by your face. The SO and I were thrilled and kept at the edge of our seats with all the action. My favorite 3D scene was the snow. The beautiful flakes drifting off the screen was pure, gentle, and comforting.
The story is a pretty good one. From all the synopses and clips we had seen thus far, they really kept it under wraps, huh? I enjoyed the twist in the plot and loved how they wrapped everything together.
I found it heart warming and amusing that Zach Braff who plays Oz's assistant, but not his friend, also voices Finley, the trustworthy flying monkey who becomes his assistant, loyal companion, and ultimately, his friend.
Those that question the darkness of the movie and the suitable age for child viewers would be surprised. For me, the film wasn't really dark at all. The 6 year old who sat behind me would agree as she enthusiastically commented on parts of the film throughout the 2+ hours.
When Wanda asks magician Oz what she should do about her possible marriage, my child commentator smartly said, "it's your choice!" Not once did I hear her complain about the darkness or scariness of the film even when the flying baboon army attacked.
Overall, a great and powerful 3D movie well worth the trip to the theater with the family this weekend!
To get you more in the mood for Oz, check out this newly released interview of Zach Braff (“Finley”) and Joey King (“China Girl”) where they interview each other about OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL. Since today's opening day, head to Disney.com to watch an exclusive two-minute clip from the film!
