Oz The Great and The Powerful Review: Rainbow Flavored Crack

Oz The Great and The Powerful is simplistic and predictable self-actualization of a douchebag in a magical world.

Watching Oz the Great and the Powerful is like getting high on rainbow flavored crack. After a brief sepia introduction, the film whisks you into the technicolor land of Oz as a candy-colored wonderland with a yellow brick road paved through interesting flora and fauna.

James Franco is completely miscast as the womanizing conman. Mila Kunis’ acting is flat and the rest of the witches are bland. Ironically, the winged monkey and the doll were more memorable than the human cast.

The film is a thin and simplistic redemption tale of a douchebag. There’s a lot of visual cotton-candy here, but they’re all overblown.

Oz the Great and the Powerful would be good for kids below six. No more no less.
