I’m not a Disney Fan. I never cared for the Princess themed films. I never understood why the Queen in Snow White or Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty were at all threatened in beauty or charm or intellect by the youth in each film, I always had the expression, like why??. But this dark gritty version of a fairy tale more on the lines (at times better) of Alice in Wonderland (2010) & way superior from the horrible Snow white & the Huntsman (2012). The story is sophisticated enough to delight adult audiences with a brilliant take on the beloved tale with a delightful twist including the meaning of true love. The characters are sympathetic and there is enough excitement making this film a visual classic. Angelina Jolie is just awesome, she has clearly put her heart and soul into making this film. Elle Fanning seemed as if she was born for this part. Sharlto Copley is amazing as the paranoid king, I am happy to see the King finally getting a proper role other than being just a by stander. Maleficent is an enchanting and wonderful film that shows good stories and great ideas do exist and can still spark your heart with joy as it is destined to become a classic. Recommended!!
