While I did enjoy this movie, I didn't find it to be anything stellar. The plot twist was fairly predictable early on. Every time I saw James Franco I kept thinking, "hey look... Harry Osbourne is the Wizard."
Again, while I did enjoy the movie I didn't think it was anything special. Compared to recent Oz endeavors I found it surpassed Return to Oz by leaps and bounds, however, it doesn't hold a candle to Wicked.
