Oz the Great and Powerful 3D Movie Review

Borrowing heavily from Wicked musical storyline, where the goodies aren't who you think they are, this movie tells the story of Oz's rise to power in the Emerald Kingdom. Starting out in black and white, but strangely not 2D like the original, it tells the story of a crooked con-man Oz who gets taken by a twister to the colourful 3D land of Oz. It then tells the story of his journey to meet Glinda and save Oz from the wicked witches. The beginning unfortunately seems to drag, and the journey also takes forever, meeting a talking monkey for comedy relief and an annoying china doll on the way. The final battle is clever, an Oz continues to con the people, as he has no real wizard powers at all.
