Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) causing mayhem with her feathered sidekick.

I loved Maleficent, or as I call it Magnificent. I went to see it in 2D (sorry, no IMAX or 3D review) and was pleasantly surprised by this film because I did not expect the movie I got. It was an origin story for Maleficent, the villain from Sleeping Beauty. It shows what drove Maleficent to do the things she did in?Sleeping Beauty. The previews promoted it as a really dark movie but it has some?surprisingly light scenes and you start to root for Maleficent, even though she did some very bad things. Angelina Jolie does a fantastic job of portraying a hard character. She is not 100 percent evil but she is not 100 percent good either. You feel her pain. Sam Riley plays Devon, a man who can turn into any animal and Sharlto Copley is the evil King Stefan. The fairies bring most of the laughs. I recommend this movie to kids ages 6 though 10 because there are some scary images and scary battle sequences and even I got a little scared.
