Rating: 4/10 -- A fundamentally misguided interpretation of the title character, one that seems to misunderstand what drew people to her in the first place. Full Review
Rochester City Newspaper
Undoubtedly, Jolie's performance will be touted as elegantly evil, but it's Elle Fanning's effervescence as Aurora that really makes this film glow. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- It's a splendid-looking film. The effects are striking throughout, whether they are dramatic battle confrontations between humans and the forces of the natural world, or small moments of delicate detail. Full Review
The Age (Australia)
Rating: C+ -- The characters surrounding Maleficent became caricatures as if they were pulled directly from a cartoon. Full Review
Smash Cut Reviews
Watching Jolie pose and smolder and glower is the chief attraction of MALEFICENT.
[V]isually arresting, brilliantly designed....Boasting an impressive and impeccably costumed Angelina Jolie in the title role...
[Ms. Jolie is] a formidable presence -- with heightened cheekbones that sweep up into her ears like the speed lines on a sports car, and green vapors rising from her shoulders...
Wall Street Journal
Robert Stromberg's MALEFICENT stars Angelina Jolie stars as the title character, who, as a teenager, is a powerful and respected winged fairy helping to rule a magical land full of strange creatures. Her homeland borders a country that is populated by humans and run by the cruel King Henry (Kenneth Cranham). One day, a farm boy named Stefan (Jackson Bews) traipses into the fairy's land and meets Maleficent, causing the two crazy teens to fall into forbidden love. Year later, Henry seeks to take over the magical land next to his kingdom, but is thwarted in battle by Maleficent. Eager for revenge, he offers his daughter's hand in marriage to whoever can stop the fairy, and the now-grown Stefan (played as an adult by Sharlto Copley) succeeds by betraying her and clipping her wings. In response, an infuriated Maleficent swears revenge on Stefan; she gets her chance when he becomes king himself and has his first child, a daughter named Aurora (Elle Fanning) -- as SLEEPING BEAUTY fans will remember, Maleficent curses her to fall into a death-like sleep after pricking her finger on a spinning wheel on her 16th birthday. Stefan demands that all of the spinning wheels be collected, and orders his daughter to be secretly raised in the woods by three good-hearted but dim-witted fairies, who will return her to him the day after her 16th birthday. However, Maleficent refuses to stay away from Aurora and ends up developing maternal feelings for the girl, eventually inspiring her to try to undo the curse she placed upon the princess.
