Review rate : A

“..you'll be surprised at just how funny the film is. And even if you think adding 3-D is as useful as the Wicked Witch's shower, it would take a whole lot more to dispel the film's magic..”
by Keith Staskiewicz [Entertainment Weekly]
“..the streoscopic "Oz" moderately enhances the enjoyment of a film that was already about as entertaining as they come. It looks fantastic, sounds great, and the 3-D effects are both subtle and respectfully applied..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
3.5 of 4

“..the blend of old-fashioned, classic storytelling with cutting-edge technology is undeniably enthralling..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..quite stunning and a lot less gimmicky than it could have been..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]
4 of 4

“..not only is it wonderfully entertaining, but the issues it addresses, and the way it presents them, are both universal and deeply personal..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..knowing that it was made without a single computer, and entirely by human ingenuity, makes it all the more worthy of marveling at, 75 years and an added dimension later..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
4 of 4

“..glasses or no glasses, 75th anniversary or 74th, "The Wizard of Oz" remains a wondrous experience..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
