This was a very well done movie. Some of the parts are a little dark, but your kids won't pick up on their true meanings until they're older. Overall it's a really good story with an overall feel good message that kids will understand.
After watching Malificent, I purchased the movie. It was so inspiring. It dealt with some of the darker side of fairytales and how they can turn people bitter, but they can eventually push through the pain.
This movie is my all time favorite Disney movie. I'm so glad that they are currently filming the second one to this. It's a sweet movie and it touches your heart .
This is a very good movie. The soundtrack, Maleficent's cheekbones (don't even get me started omg) and the subtle way they show how people can change through loving someone. Amazing performance.
This movie was phenomenal. My cousin and I went to go see it and it was totally incredible. Disney branching out to make their animated classics into live versions has been hugely successful and this one did not dissapoint.
I'm not surprised that this was such a great movie. The colors are amazing. I love the twist on this old world story. A genious idea-showing viewers that the EVIL queen actually had a past and wasn't always evil. People are who they are because of what they have lived. Nice to teach kids to sometimes think about what others may be going through before judging.
Can’t go wrong with anything Disney for your children! As a family we love to spend time together and Disney is always involved! My son and daughter love Disney! Highly Recommend!
I honestly have to say this is Angelina Jolie are her best. She was very believable as Maleficent. This is my favorite portrayal of Sleeping Beauty! Very well cast! Great graphics! Kept me watching! This is a family favorite in our home. We highly recommend that you watch this one. Not going to spoil the movie so go get it!
This is an amazing take on the other side of a Disney classic. Couldn't have chosen a better actress to play Maleficent, to be honest. I love the flow of this movie. The emotion is so strong throughout, you won't want to turn away from the screen. This would be a great addition to any family movie collection.
I only rented this movie because I had a coupon code from redbox, and now I'm so glad I did. One of my favorite movie ever. All the special effects and fight scene were amazing! I loved this movie so much I went out & bought it. Loved this rendition of a classic tale.
