A re-imagining of 'Sleeping Beauty,' 'Maleficent' focuses more on effects and twists than a solid story, screenplay, characters and overall entertainment.
Rated PG for sequences of fantasy action and violence, including frightening images.

"While 'Maleficent' could have been a strong re-imaging of Disney's classic 'Sleeping Beauty,' it simply buckles beneath the weight of a horrible & nonsensical screenplay, bad performances and amateur filmmaking." -Luke
