The untold story of Disney's most iconic villain from the 1959 classic 'Sleeping Beauty'. A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land's fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal – an act that begins to turn her heart into stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading King's successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom - and to Maleficent's true happiness as well.

  • Lawrence Toppman

    Yet nothing in their visually stimulating film registers as strongly as Jolie’s enigmatic, ever-changing face.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Angelina Jolie is so wickedly enchanting in the magical, magnificent Maleficent, you may not notice how transporting this female-driven blockbuster really is.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    A few bumpy patches notwithstanding, the new feature is an exquisitely designed, emotionally absorbing work of dark enchantment.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    A moderately enchanting, sometimes thought-provoking corrective to the flaws in the story that inspired it.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Jolie's Maleficent is magnificent.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Kate Taylor

    In truth, you just can’t wait until the wicked Jolie returns to the screen. Whether a malevolent twinkle illuminates her beady eye or a heartbreaking tear rolls down her alabaster cheek, she is the film’s power.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Calling Maleficent a "modern-day classic," as some have asserted, is overreaching. The production is engaging and appealing but only the passage of time will determine whether it holds in the memory with the strength of its animated predecessor.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    The movie is a mess, but it's a rich mess. It has weight. It matters. Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Maleficent imparts a feeling of enchantment. Here is a world that's strange and beautiful.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The result is a rare live-action Disney movie that merits comparison to its beloved feature-length cartoons.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Whatever its flaws, Maleficent is a family-friendly Disney adventure that offers a relaunched and thoroughly delightful Angelina Jolie. Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    This is really a movie about the evil spell Jolie casts on us — it’s both a celebration and a demonstration of her formidable movie star might.

    Slate Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Though it never plays like a polemic, the film has so much it wants to say the emotional power that might have made it a classic is undercut.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Louis Black

    Imaginatively, it places all the known elements of the story in different contexts, completely recasting this familiar fairy tale into a more poignant and resonant work.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Maleficent feels spit-balled into more directions than barely 90 minutes of story time can adequately cover. It's once upon a time, happily ever after and a lot of undeveloped drama in between.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Keith Staskiewicz

    The characters are boiled down to their essentials, the humor is timelessly broad, and Jolie's at her best when she's curling her claws and elongating her vowels like a black-sabbath Tallulah Bankhead.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    For all its limitations, Maleficent manages to be improbably entertaining to watch, due solely to its title character. As befits a star of her regal standing and superb self-awareness, Angelina Jolie has managed to bend even the Brothers Grimm to her indomitable will.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    While this is Jolie’s show, obviously — and she’s terrifically arch — the surprising dearth of other compelling characters doesn’t offer much distraction when things get off track.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    This is almost entirely Angelina Jolie's show...this is a performance that goes from point A to point B without seeming rote, or ho-hum.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Enchanting enough to cast a spell over fans, of Jolie, of Disney, of "Sleeping Beauty" -- and of pure, cinematic escapism.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Consciously or not, coherently or not, Maleficent tells a new kind of story about how we live now, not once upon another time. And it does so by suggesting, among other things, that budding girls and older women are not natural foes, even if that’s what fairy tales, Hollywood and the world like to tell us.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    If you go into Maleficent expecting Jolie to be the badass of Sleeping Beauty, you’re going to get burned.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Joe Walsh

    Despite its pitfalls, Maleficent entertains because of Jolie, who holds the wavering threads of Stromberg's spinning wheel together with aplomb.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    The aggressively unpleasant visuals certainly detract from the overall film, but Maleficent makes for a fascinating entry in an ongoing wave of projects that give “bad” women of literature a chance to present their side of the story.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    The action sequences are executed with rhythm and punch, and our heroine swoops and swirls around like Iron Man in a sheath dress. Maleficent may be short on true enchantment, but until we find a superhero who can pull off a black silk cocktail gown in battle, she’s very welcome.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    It’s a dazzling showcase of fantasy-based filmmaking in the 21st century that also manages a feeble attempt at injecting feminist politics into an antiquated narrative. Yet its eventual climax strains from the obviousness of these efforts.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Director Robert Stromberg, making his debut as a director after supervising the visual effects for movies like “Alice in Wonderland” and “Avatar,” lacks the transcendent touch.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    While I can see how there is a version of this film that might be able to successfully grapple with its central metaphor, I'm not sure Stromberg is the guy to make that movie.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    More well-intentioned than accomplished.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Jolie’s commitment to the part is admirable: She gives this Maleficent a real emotional urgency. But the rest of the movie lets her down.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    It fails to live up to its early promise, mostly because of an uneven tone and murky character development

    USA Today Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Maleficent is out of balance in all sorts of ways. The effective silent sequences conflict with the frustratingly talky ones. The new material fits poorly with moments that directly quote the classic.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Jolie's performance so overshadows the rest of the cast (and the rest of the movie) that you sometimes feel as if the other characters are, like us, just standing around watching her. This is not, however, the fault of the other actors. It's the fault of screenwriter Linda Woolverton, who doesn't give them much to do that's challenging or interesting.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Impressive. And violent. Just not a lot of fun.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Matthew Kassel

    Why tell the Sleeping Beauty story anew? With this half-hearted film, Mr. Stromberg, the visual effects wizard behind such big-budget blockbusters as "Oz the Great and Powerful," "Alice in Wonderland" and "Avatar," can’t provide an answer.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    Uncertain of tone, and bearing visible scarring from what one imagines were multiple rewrites, the film fails to probe the psychology of its subject or set up a satisfying alternate history, but it sure is nice to look at for 97 minutes.

    Variety Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    Maleficent desperately tries to create a character whose motivation you will understand and empathize with. But the screenplay and direction are such a tangled, thorny patch of conflicting ideas that it's hard to tell what that motivation is supposed to be.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    If this tiresome yarn is the ‘true’ story of one of Disney’s most popular villains then, please, give us colourful lies and happy ignorance.

    Empire Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    This icon of witchcraft can't save a production that's suffocatingly elaborate yet insufficiently bewitching.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    With more actual grrrl power, Maleficent would be a bold redo. Instead, it's a beautiful snooze, a story that hints at the darkness underneath our fairy tales and tarnishes the idea of true love without quite daring to say what's really on its mind: that even the best of us might not live happily ever after.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Maleficent is an admittedly great-looking, sometimes creepy, often plodding and utterly unconvincing re-imagining of a famous romantic fairy tale as a female empowerment metaphor.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Jolie comes to this party ready to bite, but the movie muzzles her. Even at 97 minutes, Maleficent is still one long, laborious slog.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    We may have all wanted to know the story behind those famed horns, but the mystery was far preferable to having Maleficent de-fanged and de-clawed in the process.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Except for Angelina Jolie, exemplary as the fairy badmother who laid a narcotic curse on an infant princess, this pricey live-action drama is a dismaying botch.
