The Press Reviews

  • An improvement on the first film, in the end, and an encouraging rallying cry against fear and intolerance, but it's still far too busy and baroque to match its leading lady's elegance. Full Review

  • An uninspired and unnecessary sequel that won't leave you spellbound. There's neither enough Maleficent or genuine magic to make it worth a revisit. Full Review

  • The true Disney villains in this case are off screen, sabotaging the studio's canon from within. Full Review

  • A sequel that feels programmed to within an inch of its life. Full Review

  • This Maleficent is disappointing, although Jolie certainly sells it hard, as does Fanning, who takes it as seriously as anything else in her career. Full Review

  • It's hard not to appreciate the sheer derangement of the plot that Ingrith has concocted, which is so cruel and so elaborate... as to make even the original Maleficent's machinations in "Sleeping Beauty" look tame by comparison. Full Review

  • As the nemesis to Angelina Jolie's red-lipped siren, Pfeiffer gives us exactly what we want - the same hissing Catwoman attitude she heated up for Mother! Full Review
