Suddenly, the magnificent winged sprite, Maleficent, and the lovely Princess Aurora are caught in the middle. Does love always end well? Maleficent: Mistress of Evil Movie download
It is easy to complain and act all snarky to the studio and say that this movie is essentially a money grab and they just really want follow up a financially successful film. And honestly, there are certain parts of this film where it kinda does feel like it. For me the narrative of the film is very by the numbers. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil Movie download
You know where things are going right of the bat. You may have the one or two shocks here and there but the progression of the story is predictable. The animation is very nice; I mean its Disney, what you expect? But the thing that really holds and even elevates this film together is Angelina Jolie. How she is that gorgeous is beyond me. She is fantastic in this film; she really does elevate a scene whenever she’s there. Her portrayal and embodiment of the character is so good that audiences connect to her. Furthermore, the dynamic of Aurora and Maleficent is fantastic in the film. Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning have great chemistry. The rest of the cast, however, not so much. I feel like they were stoic and were reading their lines off of cue cards held by an intern. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil Movie download
This is especially true with Prince Phillip, the man just comes off emotionless in his delivery. Also there is one character in the film that I absolutely hated, and she comes across as one of the stupidest characters in the film. Lastly the film had its fair share of problems with their audio. There were a couple of scenes that I felt like their audio dubbing was off and just didn’t mesh well. All in all, it was pretty ok. There were a lot of plot holes that the film just didn’t even care to address but at the same time there were a couple of moments where it was good. More accurately these were when Maleficent was on screen. I think if you are looking for a film to see where the whole family could enjoy, this is a viable film to see. It is a joy to see but certainly not groundbreaking.
