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. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces a 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 perhaps to Maleficent's true happiness as well.

I despise this film. I thought the actors did a great job with what they were given, and the film is visually stunning. However, the story itself is terrible. I have always said that if you have to demonize other characters to make the re-telling work, then you're telling the wrong story. And it took demonizing King Stefan, making the queen a complete non-entity, and turning the three good fairies (one of whom, Merryweather, was my childhood hero) into complete idiots to make the story work. It didn't work for me at all. I would have much preferred an entire tale of Maleficent *before* Sleeping Beauty. Tell me about her entire life. Don't tell me the tale of Sleeping Beauty from a different point of view. I found the film poor because of it.

I love this side of the story about Sleeping Beauty and the "villain". I think Maleficent's story is good and think they did a good job with the story line and plot of the movie

The movie Maleficent is a different version of sleeping beauty created by Disney. Young Maleficent, being the queen of the fairies, falls in love with a young boy Stefan. Over the years Maleficent and Stefan's love fades... One day the king invades fairy lands and gets attacked by Maleficent. The king then announced that whoever can kill Maleficent and bring back her wings would become king. Stefan then betrays Maleficent leaving her with no wings after cutting them off while she was asleep. To get revenge on Stefan, Maleficent curses Stefan's future daughter, not knowing that she fell in love with her. Only true love's kiss could save Stefan's daughter, and that kiss was from no price but Maleficent. This story was quite different from the original Disney Sleeping Beauty. When that sleeping beauty was sleeping, a prince woke her up... but in "Maleficent", Maleficent had the power to wake her up even though she was so angry to put a curse on her. A beautiful movie full of love.

A visually striking re-imagining of SLEEPING BEAUTY, MALEFICENT exceeded my expectations. The story was simple but Angelina Jolie knocked it out of the park with her performance. And since the focus is always on her, every scene is breathtaking art. I reveled in it. It was truly a fairy tale. I definitely recommend it.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Some battle scenes, and they show the dude cutting off her wings, but not too much.
