Brilliant reason for 3D
Verified purchase
This film is what good visual effects and 3D is all about (tv manufactures have lost the plot) and is in the best of Disney tradition, superb from begining to end and worth every penny. Thankyou to those who still produce 3D blue ray discs and players. Now the gripe....... Having purchased the last of the top of the Range Panasonic 3D flagship tvs, what do I do with all my 3D discs Mr Panasonic when my tv fails? well instead of spending another £7000 on one of your tvs I will buy a top of the range projector systems and continue to enjoy my discs and I suspect many others will do likewise. Please do not let my rant distract you from all the good things that this dvd offers.

Fairytale revisionism
Verified purchase
I consider the first Maleficent as the single most successful and most interesting among Disney’s strong of live action productions. That movies provided a very attractive backstory with a redeeming twist to the well known fairy tale source material. The vision and effects were magnificent and Angela Jolie in the lead role couldn’t be better. But the best aspect, looking back at the other endless stream of Disney live action remakes movies so far; it had something new to tell.

In this second instalment of what might become a franchise, there is even another impressive female antagonist, the evil queen , played by Michelle Pieffer to complete the the trio of feminists lead characters. Aurora has naturally progressed to the role of Queen of the Moors and she and Maleficent work closely to unite the human and fairy realms. A dinner with Aurora’s parents in-law and Maleficent present turns into a disastrous event for the latter, she gets hurt and has to be and rescued by other dark fairy.
This leads to an excessive amount of subplots and themes, in the end the movie veers a bit between sitcom comedy and a more heavy handed story about genocide - which probably was a bit too demanding for the professional critics that generally disliked this movie.
So the main drawback of this seemingly big production movie is that the there is an unclear direction of the storyline, that therefore feels a bit incoherent which in the end distracts from subtle fairytale storytelling. However it is not that our children noticed this. They very much enjoyed it, and didn’t question the story and events at all. And the the movie remains very entertaining to watch with the family. Similar to its predecessor it is a breathtaking visual extravaganza to enjoy. We bought the 3D version that on a high-end tv screen really draws you deeper into the magic. The movie looks spectacular again, the costumes stunning. Angelina Jolie, not my favourite actress, shines in this role. And once more this episode about the horned mistress of the fairies brings back some very welcome originality to the Disney live action movies. Four stars.

A DELIGHTFUL AND MAGICAL FANTASY DRAMA
Verified purchase
Angelina Jolie revisits her role as Maleficent in this part two of Disney's offering.
Five years have passed since King Stefan's death since when Aurora (Elle Fanning) has ruled the magical kingdom of the moors, a place protected by the powerful Maleficent down the years.
During this time Aurora and Prince Philip have become close, Philip (Harris Dickinson) proposes marriage, Aurora accepts, however, the news is not greeted well by Maleficent, she does not trust those in power in the kingdom of Ulstead.
Though Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer) and husband King John (Robert Lindsay) seem to welcome their son's proposal to Aurora, King John sees it at uniting two kingdoms, the Queen has other motives however.
There will be a falling out at the celebration banquet, after being accused of a crime she did not commit, Maleficent causing chaos fly's out of the castle, however, a trap has been laid by Queen Ingrith.
Maleficent will be saved by one of her own kind a Dark Fey.
She will be taken to the caves the Dark Fey's kingdom these days having been driven from their lands by humans.
Queen Ingrith has been plotting war, with what she sees as a weakness of her husband now under a sleep-spell she will set about destroying all that is dear to Aurora and her Godmother which will she hopes invite an attack from the Dark Fey which given their numbers is a battle they cannot win?
Who is really the evil-one? Will Maleficent prevail? Will Prince Phillip and Aurora marry?
This is a magnificent spectacle on the 4k format with the picture quality greatly enhanced.
I did feel the film to be quite dark and would advise caution for younger viewers.

Top-notch 3D fully realizes a magical story
Verified purchase
The 3D is top-notch: great depth, fine resolution, and (when appropriate) protrusion out of the screen. Viewed on a large wall screen projected in 3D with full surround sound one is immersed in a completely realized world. Each magical creature is not a 2D image but a 3D real creature. This is what 3D was made for: pulling you into beautifully detailed places you've not been (and can't otherwise) visit. To all those who produced this fine 3D product: Bravo! The 3D version is worth watching many times over.

Daughter loves it!
Verified purchase
Bought in error instead of the first film, but luckily 7yr old daughter loves it even more than the first film. It is a bit dark and scary for 6/7yr olds in places, it depends on your child. Mine found it way less scary than the first Harry Potter film. We didn’t find there were any extended battle scenes and it is a vast improvement on those singing Disney princesses we’ve had on repeat for the last few years!! 🤣 (which are great of course, in moderation).

Great film
Verified purchase
A great sequel. Beautifully shot, not a bad story given the original is so iconic and based on a retelling of such a famous fairy tale. It continues in that line. Angelina Jolie is very watchable, Boo and hiss at Michelle Pfeiffer who plays the baddie so subtly especially at the beginning.

Downside: it’s quite upsetting in the middle, my 12 year old (gentle soul) cried. More death than the original.
It’s free on Disney+ now so we’d bought it 2 weeks before -argh! Ho hum, Still was worth it. Watched it twice now which says it all..

Loved the first Maleficent film.......love this one just as much!

Something for everyone, child and adult Disney-er alike.

Angelina Jolie really is a very good actress and no matter how "evil" Maleficent is meant to be........she really isn't. She's utterly adorable. Diavall is just fab!

Films you can watch over and over.

Hope there's more to come in the future!
