Editorial Reviews

MALEFICENT explores the untold story of Disney's most iconic villain from the classic SLEEPING BEAUTY and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king's newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.

Format:Blu-ray
Maleficent is a remake of the Disney classic "Sleeping Beauty." I assumed that I knew what it was going to be about but, it turned out to be a totally unpredictable and amazing movie. Maleficent is about a betrayed fairy (Angelina Jolie) that curses the king's infant daughter Aurora as revenge. She soon discovers that when Aurora grows up, she is the only one who can restore the peace and happiness that everyone needs to get them out of the depression caused by revenge and war. This movie takes "Sleeping Beauty" and turns it into a completely different movie.

By far, this is the best Disney movie I've seen and one of the best movies I’ve seen in a while. Everything is just right. For example, the music sets the right mood in every scene. It is strong and loud when it needs to be and quite and shy at other times and, at certain points, it is playful and happy. It really pulls the whole movie together. Along with the jaw-dropping music, this movie has amazing actors starting with Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning (Auora). They fit each role perfectly almost as if they were born for these roles.

This movie is very interesting to watch because it isn’t entirely based on "Sleeping Beauty" so you get to see a completely different side of Maleficent before she becomes the villain that she is known as. Throughout the movie I found myself wanting the movie to go quicker to see what would happen next but not wanting it to end anytime soon. I think that the director Robert Stromberg and the writers Linda Woolverton and Charles Perrault really outdo themselves with this movie because I cannot stop obsessing about how great it is.

I give this movie 5 out of 5 perfect stars and recommend it for ages 9 to 18. To be honest, this movie is a movie that you should be sure not to miss because IT IS THAT GOOD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Malificent !!! June 5, 2014
Format:DVD
This movie was absolutely fantastic and a "must see" in my opinion. Realize, it is not a child's movie. I give it a 5 star plus, plus, plus. The movie was magnificent in story line, acting, and computer graphic imaging (CGI). Although it follows the basic Disney storyline that we saw as children, it has a few slightly different twists as it takes a full 360 degree approach. It is a storyline that is about both Malificent (M) and Aurora (A) (aka Sleeping Beauty).

The movie begins with M. as a young girl, a fairy, to be precise. She is pretty, precious, sweet and loved by all. So...what happened to turn her into a meanie? That's what this storyline explains. You get to see what hardened her heart to cause her to curse baby A. Whether you agree or not, you will understand why M. was so terribly hurt and angry. You will also learn that M. has human feelings beyond her awesome magical powers, feelings just like you and I. Angelina Jolie was super A + + + in her role as M.; I don't think anyone could have done a better job. The CGI was fantastic, and the 3D added even more to an already awesome movie. The story had strong embedded messages about the evils of hatred and the power of love. The ending was also wonderful! This movie was a winner all around and I am anxious to watch it again. I will buy the video when it becomes available but I might actually even go back to the theater soon to see it there again. It was that good.

Parents with Children:
I certainly do not intend to tell anyone what to do, but my suggestion is to avoid taking children under about age 8 to see this movie until you see it first.

I thought Maleficent was a brilliant retelling. I’m a huge fairy tale lover and am especially fond of twisted tales.

Honestly I didn’t think it would be possible to fall in love with Maleficent but I was proven wrong. I loved her!!

There is not one thing I can think of that I would change in this movie. By the end I was totally happy with how things played out.

My favorite character was Maleficent’s sidekick Diaval played by Sam Riley. In fact I think I would have been perfectly content if Aurora fell in love with him.

As far as age appropriateness… my friend took her three year old Disney princess loving daughter to it and they ended up in having to leave. She said it wasn’t scary at all but just boring, here is what she said -

"At the end of Maleficent sitting OUTSIDE of it waiting for it to be over. My daughter was bored out of her mind and would not behave. First time she’s ever done that in a movie."

My daughter is 8 and I think she will love it. I would think maybe by age 6 this would work for most kids.

Now for my 19 year old son’s reaction… he thought it was a good movie but wasn’t thrilled that the story-line had been changed. He never has been a fan of any kind of change so that doesn’t really surprise me. I can’t really say why without spoiling the movie but it was very similar to his reaction to Frozen. He is a big believer in true loves kiss breaking spells. “The boy should kiss the girl and they should all live happily ever after.” And although this movie of course had a true loves kiss it had a twist to it.

My recommendation – See this one.

I really like what they did with this story. In most of the fairy tales, the step mother gets a really bad rap. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars misogyny dressed up as female empowerment (what a surprise, hollywood)
For a movie that claims such woman-power, Maleficent is a terrible dud. It relies on such heavy stereotypes of the female experience that it borders on misogynistic. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this movie
Heartwarming story. There is always a reason why someone can turn to evil. A broken heart always leads to that. Loved this movie. Love this story. Jolie was born for this role!
