In particular, the scene when Friends Disney Maleficent Evil Queen Ursula Cruella de Vil shirt curses the young Aurora, something which is made to resemble the shot from the original film. A few more such shots, and maybe we would have had quite a different outlook to this movie. One thing that director Robert Stromberg does perfectly well though, given his past history in the production design and visual effects departments. The shots of Maleficent flying in the air, the beauty and then the darkness of the Moors where Maleficent resides, the flame-throwing dragon, they all give the tale a larger feel. But to dismiss off Maleficent as an unenjoyable experience would be far from the truth. For it holds one trump card, that makes up for many of the flaws of the movie.
Alas, if only the likes of Friends Disney Maleficent Evil Queen Ursula Cruella de Vil shirt would have been handling the film, and Stromberg would have stuck to those areas where he is great at, then possibly the heart of the film would have had the right tint of malice and love in the setting of a visually enthralling landscape, making it a fairy tale worth remembering. And that card is Angelina Jolie. One cannot think of anyone else who could have done justice to this legendary character. The power of her personality keeps you hooked onto her, in every single frame.
