It was a pretty bad movie. Bad writing, inconsistencies, weak acting, boring as all heck. But at the end it sort of came together in a sweet ending. From where I stand anyone rating it over two stars merely suffers from short attention span and is influenced by a final few minutes. Aside from the movie itself...I read the Frank Baum Oz series of books way back in the day and remember them as magical and exciting. This movie, as a prelude based on that series, was very disappointing in that regard.
