Maleficent Review: Angelina Jolie Spreads Villain’s Maternal Wings

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Maleficent may be the “origins” story of the Sleeping Beauty villain, but do not go in expecting Angelina Jolie to channel the most evil parts of one of the more feared Disney villains in cinematic history. Instead, we get a woman bent on revenge, justice and surprisingly one who is driven by maternal emotions.

    I didn’t expect to enjoy this movie mostly because Angelina’s latest movies proved to be somewhat disappointing for me – I’m looking at you “Salt” and “The tourist”. Loved the plot twist, the characters and the graphics were amazing. I don’t care what bad press Angelina gets, I love this woman and her facial features made her perfect for this role!
