Story


"Oz: The Great and Powerful" imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot-fame and fortune are his for the taking-that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity-and even a bit of wizardry-Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“.."Oz" represents the dizzy high point of Sam ("Spider-Man") Raimi's considerable career. He directs with skill and velocity, tossing another unsuspecting Midwesterner into a whirlwind that leads to a dazzling land of munchkins and airborne monkeys..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
“..this trip isn't so notable. It's not bad. Some bits are enjoyable. But ultimately, other than some genuinely impressive visuals, it never makes a compelling-enough case to justify its existence..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“..Oz the Great and Powerful is a grand adventure notable for its enchanting visual artistry..”
