Oz The Great and Powerful

"Oz The Great and Powerful" imagines the origins of the beloved wizard character, who made his debut in author L. Frank Baum’s first book “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”. It is Disney's version of fantastical adventure directed by Sam Raimi.

When Oscar Diggs (played by James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot - fame and fortune are his for the taking - that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (played by Mila Kunis), Evanora (played by Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (played by Michelle Williams), 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 wizard but into a better man as well.

Overall, the film is entertaining, the visual effect is good and I'm pretty sure the kids will like the movie. However, I don't feel like Mila Kunis and James Franco were right for their role which are major for this film, their performance were forgettable.
