Storyline Heading
A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land's fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal -- an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king's successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom -- and perhaps to Maleficent's true happiness as well.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Fantasy Action Adventure - This is a live action take on Disney's animated classic Sleeping Beauty but with the focus on the villainess. Angelina Jolie fans will enjoy this huge showcase for the star while Elle Fanning fans may be disappointed how the princess plays a secondary role. Some scary and dark images and action sequences may be too intense for the youngest of children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The marriage between the actress' capabilities and the director's experience results in a satisfying and successful motion picture.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The movie is a mess, but it's a rich mess. It has weight. It matters.

USA Today Full Review
Average Disney missed a golden opportunity to tell a bewitching story and instead gives audiences a muddled revisionist tale with stunning visuals.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Above Average Unfortunately, the story is more than a bit of a muddle, a string of sequences that shuttle the characters back and forth between the film's sole two locations...

NY Post Full Review
Average For all the CGI noise around Jolie, her central performance here is still a gloriously cinematic happily-ever-after.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 71 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, enjoyed "Maleficent." Over half of all groups indicated that they loved it. Approximately twenty-percent more indicated it was an "above average" movie. Unfortunately, there were twenty-percent, or so, that only felt it was an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
