If the storyline had been more developed and cohesive, I would have appreciated it more.  I felt like I was being force fed the story without it sinking in.  I miss old-school Disney, where at least the dialogue had whit and intelligence in it...instead you have "I hate you, beastie" and "what have you done to my beautiful self".  Maybe the script was slaughtered in the editing room, I don't know.  Linda Woolverton has seen better days.  In spite of a few corny lines here and there, at least "Beauty and the Beast" was charming and not as self-conscious.  
Now, they had a great concept: a telling of Maleficent's background to make her character more sympathetic.  But why so saccharine?  They completely changed her character.
Now, the positive.  I thought the scenery was breathtaking and the acting, especially on the part of Jolie, was convincing.  I really wish they'd just spent more time developing the story.  I think that they should have done what David Yates and Steve Kloves did with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow and made two movies...that way, they wouldn't have sacrificed the story to make it fit into a 90 minute time frame.

Saw the movie and honestly I think Angelina carried the movie.... its definitely no 'Wicked' in terms of turning the villain into a misunderstood hero but it was an interesting concept

I enjoyed it overall. It was another great twist on true love and though it focused a lot on Jolie, she was still good. Her dynamic with Aurora and the crow was enjoyable to watch.
