The scenery is vividly rendered, with tree creatures reminiscent of THE LORD OF THE RINGS...
While it may in moments be a bit dark for very young ones, it is a great family film, worthy of the Disney canon. Full Review
Times of Malta
Watching Jolie pose and smolder and glower is the chief attraction of MALEFICENT.
... my long-time worship of the character likely makes me a little extra critical-and I'm sure others will love and appreciate it just as it is (hi, Mom!). Full Review
Three Imaginary Girls
[V]isually arresting, brilliantly designed....Boasting an impressive and impeccably costumed Angelina Jolie in the title role...
3 stars out of 4 -- Jolie has never gotten the credit she deserves as both an old-fashioned glamorous movie star and a skilled, thoughtful actress; this part fuses both sides of her talent.
Undoubtedly, Jolie's performance will be touted as elegantly evil, but it's Elle Fanning's effervescence as Aurora that really makes this film glow. Full Review

Robert Stromberg's MALEFICENT stars Angelina Jolie stars as the title character, who, as a teenager, is a powerful and respected winged fairy helping to rule a magical land full of strange creatures. Her homeland borders a country that is populated by humans and run by the cruel King Henry (Kenneth Cranham). One day, Henry's son Stefan (Jackson Bews) traipses into the fairy's land and meets Maleficent, causing the two crazy teens to fall into forbidden love. Year later, Henry seeks to take over the magical land next to his kingdom, but is thwarted in battle by Maleficent. He demands revenge, and eventually his now-grown son Stefan (played as an adult by Sharlto Copley) succeeds by betraying the fairy and clipping her wings. In response, an infuriated Maleficent swears revenge on Stefan; she gets her chance when the prince becomes king and has his first child, a daughter named Aurora (Elle Fanning) -- as SLEEPING BEAUTY fans will remember, Maleficent curses her to fall into a death-like sleep after pricking her finger on a spinning wheel on her 16th birthday. Stefan demands that all of the spinning wheels be collected, and orders his daughter to be secretly raised in the woods by three good-hearted but dim-witted fairies, who will return her to him the day after her 16th birthday. However, Maleficent refuses to stay away from Aurora and ends up developing maternal feelings for the girl, eventually inspiring her to try to undo the curse she placed upon the princess.
