Maleficent

After a 4 year hiatus Angelina Jolie is back, and lord is she back! Jolie’s performance truly brings to life the Maleficent we all loved to fear as children. However, disappointingly, the film failed to achieve consistent pacing throughout.  At points you’ll find yourself urging the story to move faster, at others you’re left wondering why they sped through so quickly. The resultant affect means audiences fail to identify, or sympathise with the supporting characters. Despite this it’s hard not to marvel at the visual feast the FX team produced.  Go see this to enjoy Angelina Jolie’s return; don’t see this if you want refined story telling.
