Just like her name Maleficent is complicated. This riff on Disney’s Sleeping Beauty was an interesting one.
Angelina Jolie plays the scary Maleficent that we all know from our childhood, with her spine-tingling magic and green flames she produces… but with this film, she has a softer side. In this film Maleficent is at times the hero of the story and also the villain. I was really impressed to see this attempt of making a Disney film complicated. I also really think Elle Fanning might be one of the cutest girls in Hollywood. She was an excellent choice to play young Princess Aurora. The visual effects in this were awesome, and it has restored my faith in live-action Disney films. There were a couple of parts that you know they threw in for young kid humor (the three fairies) but otherwise this is a fun watch for adults. I was also happy to see the beautiful Juno Temple being in a more family friendly film for once! This is a pretty cool film, it’s worth seeing for sure.
