OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFUL Review
Oz: The Great and Powerful flits audiences back into the wonderful world of Oz. It is in a sense, a prequel to the events that occurred in the classicWizard of Oz. Instead of being a story about Dorothy and her dog, this new tale follows the exploits of the wizard. Initial expectations were dim based on the comparisons to Disney’s previous effort, the billion-dollar success, Alice in Wonderland. Have Disney and director Sam Raimi made a new film with enough substance to be more than empty nostalgia?
