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.
Maleficent, which came out five years ago, was announced to have a sequel which is set to come out this October. The film’s teaser arrived a couple of months ago and now ahead of The Lion King the newest trailer is here to enjoy. Check it out.
If you don’t remember from the first film Maleficent was a kind fairy who fell in love with a human. This human would end up becoming king, betraying her, and finally, instead of killing her, cut off her wings.
The horrible deed Maleficent made her vengeful and she thought she would never grow to love again, that is until she met Aurora, the princess she cursed to fall asleep on her sixteenth birthday.
She would end up taking care of Aurora like a daughter and loving her as a mother. Fast forward to this film and Aurora is grown up and ready to get married. Maleficent’s view of love has been twisted by her one love’s betrayal but she tries to go along with the ride. And as obvious from the trailer, things don’t go as planned.
Evil it seems she has become but there is always a greater threat and I’m pretty sure Michelle Pfeiffer’s character has some serious darkness hidden behind that benevolent veil.
The most exciting thing about this trailer, however, isn’t anything from the trailer itself but rather the fact that sometime next year we will see Angelina Jolie as a superhero in the upcoming Marvel film, Eternals, and I can’t wait. She’s going to be so cool! Continue reading ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ Gets An Official Trailer
