Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Disney’s Maleficent Film Review 2014
So last weekend it was X MEN Days Of Future Past. This week it’s Disney reimagining of the classic Sleeping Beauty.
The movie stars the exquisite Angelina Jolie as the title character Maleficent the “Evil” fairy in the tale. As a fan of the original animated classic this reimagined version I have to say is my new favorite. Telling the story with a much better end for the villain we grew up knowing was Maleficent.
As the title suggests the classic tale of “Sleeping Beauty” is retold from the perspective of the villain Maleficent. Angelina Jolie’s portrayal of Maleficent is spot on and comical at times while thoroughly captivating and shows her versatility as an actress.
All the other supporting actors and actresses play their roles adequately and the story never seems to bog down or fatigue the viewer. For those who haven’t seen this adaptation brilliantly executed, take the kids and/or a date and rediscover the magic of story telling. And as for the Box Office. Maleficent is a sure fire hit with fans as well hauling in $170 million over its opening weekend.
Go see this one. Till next time this has been THEJNSREPORT’S: Disney’s Maleficent Film Review 2014
