Sam Raimi brings it all in the prequal to the L. Frank Baum novel of 1900.
The opening scenes bring on a sense of nostolgia, and memories of the 1939 Victor Fleming film (Judy Garland, Frank Morgan), as we’re introduced to our hapless hero, Oz (James Franco).
Mila Kunis is ever elegant as Theodora, alongside Rachel Weisz as sister Evanora.
The films sucks the audience in, much as Oz is pulled deeper and deeper into a magical land.
A must see film of excitement, great visuals, and a wonderful story.
