Oz the great and powerful review by twisted-wind Oz the great and powerful review by twisted-wind
:iconzenox-furry-man: helped me with the text:

The new Disney movie inspired by the novels of L. Frank Baum, where we see the origins of the Wizard OZ here called Oscar Diggs, a young magician illusionist of a small traveling circus, during a stop in Kansas the magician into a balloon is catapulted into the world of OZ, the magician is believed to be a powerful wizard of an ancient prophecy that aims to kill the wicked witch and free OZ, but it is not all gold that glitters, and we must not fall to first appearances.

The plot is faithful to the spirit of the book and the characters are well characterized, the protagonist shows his nature as an impostor but basically he has a good heart as he's concerned with the neighbor and the destiny of the world, there are several twists that I'll not tell but for sure you will be amazed, and the story tells how events took place before the famous "Wizard of Oz" that we all know.
There are several references to the characters of cowardly Lion, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow or even Dorothy, if you know well and are passionate about the world of Oz you will also notice them.

Unfortunately there has never been a book written by Baum that said the arrival of the Wizard in Oz, but fortunately this film juggles well between the famous musical of the Metro Goldwyn Mayer to the Baum books without distorting both of them too much.

Richard Roeper noted the film's omnipresent visual effects but was largely disappointed by the performance of some cast members; "...to see Williams so bland and sugary as Glinda, and Kunis so flat and ineffectual as the heartsick Theodora..." Marshall Fine of The Huffington Post was unimpressed, writing, "Oh, it's exciting enough for a six-year-old; anyone older, however, will already have been exposed to so much on TV, at the movies and on the Internet that this will seem like so much visual cotton-candy. Even a sophisticated grade-schooler will find these doings weak and overblown." Similarly, Todd McCarthy criticized the characterization, writing that the film's supporting cast "can't begin to compare with their equivalents in the original ... so the burden rests entirely upon Franco and Williams, whose dialogue exchanges are repetitive and feel tentative.

Justin Chang of Variety had a mixed reaction, writing that the film "gets some mileage out of its game performances, luscious production design and the unfettered enthusiasm director Sam Raimi brings to a thin, simplistic origin story." He also compared the film's scale with the Star Wars prequel trilogy adding, "In a real sense, Oz the Great and Powerful has a certain kinship with George Lucas’ Star Wars prequels, in the way it presents a beautiful but borderline-sterile digital update of a world that was richer, purer and a lot more fun in lower-tech form. Here, too, the actors often look artificially superimposed against their CG backdrops, though the intensity of the fakery generates its own visual fascination." Film rated the film 7 out of 10, saying it had "many charms" while considering it to be "basically Army of Darkness: (Normal guy lands in magical land, is forced to go on quest to save that land.) But just when you see [Raimi's] kinetic, signature style starting to unleash, the story forces the film back into its Disney shell to play to the masses. We're left with a film that's entertaining, a little scarier than you'd expect, but extremely inconsistent."

Kim Newman, writing for Empire, gave the film 4 out of 5 stars and said, "If there are post-Harry Potter children who don't know or care about The Wizard Of Oz, they might be at sea with this story about a not-very-nice grownup in a magic land, but long-term Oz watchers will be enchanted and enthralled... Mila Kunis gets a gold star for excellence in bewitchery and Sam Raimi can settle securely behind the curtain as a mature master of illusion." Critic Alonso Duralde also admired the movie: "That Oz the Great and Powerful is so thoroughly effective both on its own terms and as a prequel to one of the most beloved movies ever made indicates that this team has magic to match any witch or wizard." IGN rated the film 7.8 and said, "The film is expansive and larger-than-life in scope and so are the performances, overall. Franco in particular hams it up and is often playing to the balcony...The 3D is utilized just as it should be in an children's fantasy epic such as this – overtly, but with skill. Snowflakes, music boxes and mysterious animals all leap through the screen towards the audience as the story unfolds."

Oz the Great and Powerful received generally mixed reviews from film critics. Review aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes compiled a "Rotten" score of 59% based on 173 reviews and a rating average of 5.9 out of 10; its consensus is, "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."

The phase is "all that glitters is not gold" but you were close :D and that's as far as I'll go because I know you ive in Romania (right?) and English probably isn't your first language. If English was your first language, I'd go grammer nazi on you ^^;

How's about 'The Lion of Oz', which depicts the origins of the Cowardly Lion. He arrived in Oz in the same balloon as Oscar, but the Witch of the East claimed to have captured him. This turned out to be a lie and she told Lion that he may have landed in the Emerald City...
