Maleficent

Not without its shortcomings, Disney’s Maleficent features extravagant visuals and a powerful performance from Angelina Jolie.


Youth

Aimee Williams
In Robert Stromberg’s Maleficent, an antiquated fairy tale gets a progressive rewrite and a gratuitous 3-D makeover. Unlike Disney’s previous retellings (Oz the Great and PowerfulAlice in Wonderland), the highly anticipated Maleficent admirably attempts to present fully rounded female characters and make necessary the evil inherent in the 1959 animation. Fans anticipating glamorous malevolence, thanks to Angelina Jolie’s fiercely sculpted cheekbones in promo media, can expect a bit more to the story than sheer vengeance.
