From Disney comes Maleficen - the untold story of Disney`s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic `Sleeping Beauty`. A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land`s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal - an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone.

Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king`s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom - and perhaps to Maleficent`s true happiness as well.

A tale set in a land far away, where a princess awaits her true love`s kiss and a happily ever after that follows every time, here`s a story that probably runs along the same lines, but still manages to be different. Maleficent is her name, an amalgamation of magnificent and malevolent, perhaps. Angelina Jolie springs ... ...Read full review
Angelina Jolie is the new-age evil fairy, and she is simply stunning in Maleficent. Yes, she produced the film and is also acting in it but that`s the best thing that could happen to this film.Maleficent`s world is just perfect, she lives in the middle of nature. She can fly and play around with the creatures that she lives with. All is well until she falls for a boy called Stefan who lands up in the forest where she lives and wins her heart. But he vanishes and comes back much later only for the worse, to cut her wings. Losing her wings and betrayal in love leaves her totally shattered. Stefan does the cruel act to appease the King and prove his worth. Maleficent will now seek revenge at any cost and will do anything to destroy their empire. ...Read full review
If looks could kill, Angelina Jolie`s Maleficent could lay waste to armies. Jolie, with cool wings, a red scar for lips and cheekbones that could cut concrete, sure as hell has the bearing to play a classic evil bitch in Disney`s rethinking of Sleeping Beauty. If only looks were everything. But this soulless summer timekiller is empty inside. Debuting director Robert Stromberg has two Oscars for art direction (Avatar, Alice in Wonderland) and it shows. The downside is that Maleficent is nothing more than a diorama disguised as a movie, a flimsy cardboard thingie that feels untouched by human hands. The idea behind the script by Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast) is that Maleficent is really a secret softie. She`s been done wrong by a dude named Stefan (Sharlto Copley at his creepiest), who takes advantage of her innocence and later cuts off her wings so he can steal her magic land, marry the daughter of the King and wear the crown himself. Menthose rat bastards! No wonder Maleficent puts a curse on Stefan`s baby girl, Aurora. At 16, Aurora (Elle Fanning, smiling prettily and for no reason) will prick her finger on a spinning wheel and fall into a coma. Many audience members around me looked similarly afflicted. I can relate. By the time Maleficent, aided by her shape-shifting bff Diaval (Sam Riley), is through playing fairy godmother with the help of three incompetent pixies (Lesley ...Read full review
Her name is a sort of mix of malevolent, magnificent, beneficent and maybe Millicent, the flapper played by Julie Andrews in Thoroughly Modern Millie. This is another in that emerging post-Wicked genre, the revisionist-backstory fairytale. Angelina Jolie is the wicked witch (she turns out to be named Maleficent) in Sleeping Beauty, who puts a terrible spell on the infant princess, the one about pricking her finger on a spinning wheel. But how did that witch get to be so wicked? Did she start out wicked? Was she, in point of fairytale fact, quite as wicked as all that? This new story explains that maybe if she hadn`t had her heart broken by a certain royal someone back in the day, she wouldn`t be so mean. ...Read full review
