A superb re-imagining of a classical story

A young and betrayed fairy who turned to the dark side after the terrible incident curses a young princess on her baptism. Watching closely how the princess grew, she begins to have feelings for her but the previous enchantment will prove to be the final frontier in their upcoming relationship.

The classic story of Sleeping Beauty is being retold in this movie from the eyes of the "evil" witch, since her childhood and all the way to an unexpected but beautiful finale. It looks gorgeous, its CGI is top notch and its plot is a great surprise. I didn't believe that I would say this but in my opinion it is true. They've managed to improve the original story, in some ways by even drastically changing it, and the result is simply eye-watering.

It's a bit more mature way of telling a tale for children but that doesn't make it any less appealing for them than it is for any adult, or for me. A beautiful story which can be enjoyed regardless of age. Superb!

Fairy tale reworking

MALEFICENT is a fairy tale with a twist: it's a live-action follow-up to Disney's SLEEPING BEAUTY, with the focus now on that film's villainous character, the witch Maleficent. It turns out that she's a misunderstood wood-dwelling recluse who's just looking for love, but with this film's laughable scripting you won't be buying that for a second. No, this version is a complete waste of time, and you realise that from the outset as it's one of those kid-friendly films absolutely loaded down with CGI: you get CGI flying through CGI landscapes, CGI castles, and CGI fairies and supporting characters. Shoehorned-in battle scenes are supposedly there to keep adults and boys involved but don't, while Angelina Jolie is merely distracting with those contact lenses and prosthetic cheekbones. The meandering storyline goes on and on without getting anywhere, and the unconvincing actors mired in this mess include a wasted Sharlto Copley and a miscast Sam Riley. The end result? Don't bother.

"Truth" behind Sleeping Beauty fairy-tale

Told from the point of view of "evil" fairy who cast the curse. Disney finally decided to leave behind black-and-white, two-dimensional, "good vs evil" way of portraying the world and released magnificent anti-hero movie in shades of grey. "Heroes" do not look so innocent any more and "villain" gets proper background story that explains how it came to the story we remember from our childhood. Either this story has no holes or I missed them being hypnotized by beautiful scenery and wonderful effects. Elle Fanning is not as beautiful as her character name tells but she played her role very well, while Angelina Jolie nailed hers. There's no point to further analyze this movie because I have no objections at all and if I start praising its qualities it could take forever. It's simply perfect, maybe even the best Disney feature film so far. Although it's tight race with Pirates.

10/10
