Notes: 
Storyline Heading
Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that bind them as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies, and dark new forces at play.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Adventure Fantasy - Like the first film, this is a fantasy/adventure based on Sleeping Beauty, with a focus on the title villainess played by Angelina Jolie. Other key members of the original cast including Elle Fanning return, with notable newcomers including Michelle Pfeiffer. Chiwetel Ejiofor fans will be disappointed by his very small role. While aimed at families, there are some potentially scary images and intense action scenes that may be too strong for the youngest of children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average ...effective at moving the story forward rather than re-treading familiar ground, it enters a patch of quicksand from which it is unprepared to escape. Disney is adept at doing many things but offering a sobering and intelligent examination of genocide is not among them.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ...the movie fails to give Jolie the star vehicle she richly deserves, limiting her screen time in favor of new characters that aren't as interesting... There are a few striking moments... But it all feels rushed-through and improperly considered, like a fairy tale told to a child by a grownup who's tired and bored and just wants to go to bed.

USA Today Full Review
Good Jolie's magnetism, plus the way she toes the line between being a fairy version of Batman and a menacing mistress of not-quite-evil-but-pretty-close, is why these "Maleficent” movies work. She fits the character as well as her endless cycle of evolving costumes.

NY Post Full Review
Poor In "Mistress of Evil,” everything is a notch less fun, romantic and engaging. While the first film was, like "Wicked,” an alternate view of a classic good-versus-evil tale, its sequel is a one-note, moralistic sledgehammer with no payoff. The narrator begins by saying, "Twice upon a time … ” And that's as witty as it gets.
