Surprisingly good. Angelina Jolie is great and it’s an interesting twist on the sleeping beauty story.
I liked it way more than I expected to. Jolie is excellent as Maleficent. Made me a Jolie fan, as I never paid her much attention before.
Every story can be told from many different perspectives but what matters is how you tell it
I really enjoyed it and that took me by surprise. They chose a very interesting angle and it worked.
Really good movie. Nice to watch with the family
Angelina Jolie is incredible and portrays the classic disney villain so well. I fell in love with this movie when I first saw it.
Decent fantasy action movie, good special effects and ok story. Worth a watch
Loved this movie. It's intriguing to see the villain's perspective on the classic story we all know. There are 2 sides to every story.
Nothing special but still worth a watch.
A brilliant concept of the og sleeping beauty tale
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 heart into 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 to Maleficent's true happiness as well.
Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that bind them as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies, and dark new forces at play.
