After reading the Negative reviews I had my doubts about seeing this film. I guess that movie goers are a jaded bunch. My Wife and I enjoyed the film. It was not meant to be King Lear.It's The Wizard of Oz! We found the Actors to be Quite good in their roles as Characters out of the Baum Oz Book, The Witches were wicked as could be.It was colorful ,the special effects were great.I had some doubts about the China Doll character in the film previews,but She was introduced into the story line nicely.
