Where do I even start with Maleficent? This full movie is a live-action remake that I wanted Disney to follow. Now granted that i watch online and it’s not a word-for-word movie of the original 1959 Sleeping Beauty – rather it’s a reinvention of the plot, the storyline, as well as a reinvention of the beloved characters. Maleficient is not a fairy tale without the Princess Aurora. And so, even in the movie, things take a different twist, I’d say this movie is worth seeing since it’s adapted for modern audiences and people can free download movies in HD. Now remember this movie has a sequel Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019)
I have been watching this movie since I was 5 years old and I still agree with this, Maleficent is the best Disney live-action film they have made. I know not everyone is gonna agree with me which is fine but I reason I am saying is because of, one how they designed the mors, and two great casting and number 3 it is a good movie, I give Maleficent 5/5 stars, If you liked sleeping beauty then theres a good chance you might like this one and i cannot wait to see what’s next for maleficent and auroras journey in Maleficent.

I normally don't feel compelled to right reviews of movies, but the critics should be ashamed of themselves. 50% for original storytelling, a fantastic score by James Newton Howard, all-around great performances from the actors, and incredible cinematography? And these are the same critics who thought The Last Jedi was a masterpiece when it was a steaming hot pile. It appears the audiences have more sense than the critics (and don't forget--they have more cents, too) so we will ignore you "professional" critics who make a living off of tearing down works of art while propping up Trojan Horses.

What Disney did with the ''Sleeping Beauty'' classic story was fantastic...changing the personality of Maleficent gives this live action adaptation an amazing twist. The visuals, the score and the costumes were all great but the best of part was Angelina Jolie's portrait of the most known villain in the Mouse House! Overall a fantastic surprise!

At the beginning and end of this feature, it is drilled into your head that this movie is a retcon; and why shouldn't we believe the "actual" events, after all, they are told by Aurora herself. But if that was the case, then who portrayed Maleficent out to be the horrible person she was originally, especially since she still lives on as the protagonist of this film, capable of recanting the tale herself? Although the visuals and Jolie's performance are spectacular, new viewers may feel short-changed due to a story full of inconsistencies that feels a bit half-baked, while those faithful to the original may leave bewildered as to why Disney allowed such a story to manifest itself on the screen, or perhaps, simply angry, feeling that it was not Aurora who was cursed, but them.
