Someone only went and nicked Maleficent’s ruddy wings. The bollox.
All the other fairies can fly around but Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent has to walk around on her feet like some class of a chump. I’d be angry too. Arguably not angry enough to curse an innocent to an eternity-coma, but you got to hand it to Maleficent – Girl plays the long game.
Otherwise, I’m not too sure what’s going on. Special effects mainly, like that quaint garden path that gets obliterated in Maleficent’s wake – that’s pretty tasty. In any case, modern re-imaginings of classic fairy tales have been more miss than hit in recent years. See how Robert Stromberg’s first directorial effort fares when it launches on May 28th.
