I have one very blunt and precise word to describe this film: dumb. Why is it dumb, you may ask? Well, besides the captivating visuals and Oscar-worthy costume design the story was both confusing and boring with little to no willingness to make a really, really good story. I thought Maleficent was bad. I’m definitely of the opinion that its highly-anticipated sequel was worse. Far worse.
But Maleficent still manages to steal the show with her incredible powers, her flawless sense of style, her wit, and yes, that charming smile.
I’m giving this a very solid 77 out of 100 and 3 out of 5 stars. Do yourself a favor and don’t bother to watch this movie.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day.
