Caleb Brown’s review published on Letterboxd:
Okay, so I seriously don’t understand why all of these live action Disney films get so much crap from critics?? I know they aren’t all great but for the most park, I’ve really enjoyed them. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is another on the list, kinda close to the top! I enjoy the 2014 Maleficent quite a bit but this really exceeded that film in my opinion. Elle Fanning is a perfect Aurora and Michelle Pfieffer is excellent as the villain here. But as we all know, Angelina Jolie is the really STAR. She seriously doesn’t get enough credit for this role, she’s perfection. I really enjoyed the storyline(s) here. My biggest worry going in, and even in the second act a little, was how they were gonna tie all they are presenting, but they wrap it all together in what I think is a GREAT third act. I think the ending will really satisfy. Go see this movie !!
