This past weekend, my son and I went to see Maleficent in the theater and we loved it!
I won’t tell you too much as to not spoil it for you, but in one word I would describe it as “AMAZING!”.
In my 8-year-old son’s words, “It should get 3 thumbs up!” and if you need more proof of how good it is, he wants to go see it again and already requested a copy the DVD. Plus as the credits rolled at the end of the film our audience began to clap. Now you really know it is a Summer must see.
If you want additional insight into the film, it has a twist on the original Sleeping Beauty. The film is not scary, just maybe intense a few times with medieval style type fight scenes. It has an overall great story with magical and mystical backdrops. There are comedic moments and I even cried a little towards the end.
Angelina Jolie nails the role of Maleficent and through her emotion, expression, and the films special effects, you can see how the character evolves into the iconic villain we are all familiar with.
