Storyline

Five peaceful years have passed since the demise of the duplicitous monarch, King Stefan, in Maleficent (2014), and, now, an unforeseen but joyous event is about to unite the mortal Kingdom of Ulstead and the fairy-realm of the enchanted Moors. However, once more, odious treason stands in the way of true young love, as malicious envy, unbounded ambition, and ignoble thoughts creep in the hearts of men. Now, two neighbouring worlds find themselves divided by fear and prejudice, and, sadly, the impending union paves the way for an all-out confrontation. Suddenly, the magnificent winged sprite, Maleficent, and the lovely Princess Aurora are caught in the middle. Does love always end well? Written by Nick Riganas

It's always a treat to see Angelina, but ultimately disappointing
18 October 2019 | by Ritchie07See all my reviews

This was by no means an awful movie. I didn't hate it... but I definitely wouldn't say I liked it very much either. And I'm a HUGE Angelina fan and was excited all day yesterday to see her again on the big screen. After sleeping on it, I can confirm I'm very disappointed. I can't help but feel like an excellent cast (especially the women) was pretty wasted, though evil queen Ingrid (Michelle Pfeiffer) vs Maleficent was fun to watch-during the fleeting moments they were on screen together.

The film was way too busy with too much going on. Too many subplots, way too much cgi, way too little Angelina. It certainly wasn't as impactful or fun to watch as the first one, despite the fact that this sequel definitely felt more expensive. I agree with some of the critics who stated this film is trying to be a sort of "game of thrones for kids."

Angelina is always amazing and a treat to watch, but she didn't seem as into it (/enjoying herself/trying as hard) this time around. If you need proof of that, after watching this film, go on YouTube and watch the scene from the original Maleficent when she curses the baby. She's such an amazing presence in that scene, chewing the scenery beautifully. There is none of that here.

This film is a perfect example of the fact that sometimes less can be a lot more, in my opinion.
