Being a fan of the original Maleficent, I was very excited to see her get her own movie. Finally people were able to say and remember the name of my favorite villain! I came out of this movie really liking it. Now some people hate the fact that it is so different from the animated Sleeping Beauty, but I think it is an interesting take on the classic story. If you look at it as it’s own thing, it’s a great movie. Angelina Jolie is great as the title character. This version presents a whole new side of Maleficent. And yes, I still will always pick greened skin Maleficent over this version, but it still is worth a watch and one I like to go back to every once in a while.
