Cast : James Franco : Oz Mila Kunis : Theodora Michelle Williams : Glinda
a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from
dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz. At first he thinks he's hit the
jackpot-fame and fortune are his for the taking. That all changes,
however, when he meets three witches, Theodora, Evanora, and Glinda,
who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting.
Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its
inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it
is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion,
ingenuity-and even a bit of wizardry-Oscar transforms himself not only
into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.
My opinion Raimi making a fairy-like movie for children ...who couldhave thought that. The directorof "TheEvil Dead" directing atendertale. Personally, I think the original filmfrom 1939isunrivaled. Allthough I like thisonelot betterthanThe Wizfrom 1978withMichaelJackson andDianaRoss.
The introis quite originalandstronger than therest of the movie. It's clearly amovie in which thecreators ofthe digital imageshaveenjoy themselves a lot, so they werethe truemagiciansof this film.For therest it's alovelychildren's story.Chinagirlandthewingedmonkeycouldcharmme the most. ThewickedwitchesI foundextremelyannoyingafter a while.
