After mending her broken relationship with Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning), her goddaughter, who she once cursed to sleep forever, Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) begins to live a quiet life as the protectress of the Moors. However, her peaceful life is once again set to be disturbed when the princess announces her engagement to Ulstead’s crown prince, Phillip (Harris Dickinson). As Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer) devises a plan to permanently separate humans from fairies, Maleficent and Aurora find themselves on opposite ends of the brewing conflict.

O M G!!! This is an EXCELLENT movie! Not too often does a sequel outshine it's predessor but Maleficent Mistress Of Evil does just that! This movie was great from beginning to end and as much as I LOVED the 1st movie, I love this one even more. Michelle Pfeiffer played her character to perfection and Angelina Jolie gave one of the best performances I've seen in her career.
Everything from the sound to the crisp 4k video was outstanding! Everything was so colorful and looked absolutely amazing. Disney has done a great job with this movie. It's a feature you can watch with the entire family. I highly recommend this movie especially if you liked the 1st one.
This is an amazing movie for the all family. Excellent technology disc 4K ultra HD + Blu-ray. Bestbuy is my favorite technological store. I hope never disappear from ours neighborhoods. I always bought my technological's items in Bestbuy. I missed the 3D high quality from the shelf. Thank you Bestbuy.
For a movie that primes its audience to experience a tale of villainy and "pure evil" as incarnated by the title character of Maleficent (Angelina Jolie returning), Maleficent: Mistress of Evil largely doesn't fulfill its promise as the character is a mistress in the sense she's in a position of authority or control, but never does she wield these positions in ways one would exclusively associate with or consider to be "evil". Misunderstood, sure, but evil? Nah. Like the 2014 original, this sequel is more telling the audience a story we were unaware of concerning the character with the intention of ultimately altering our opinion of her and gaining a newfound sympathy for the character as her representation in the 1959 Disney animated classic was apparently a by-product of those circumstances and not "the whole story"; a reputation built off a single perspective of not only an isolated incident, but one with some justification as far as Maleficent's emotions were concerned even if her actions never could be. While that 2014 film was more or less restricted by the original tale of Sleeping Beauty (we've seen the iconic cursing of the baby moment in live action, so let's move on) this second chapter in Maleficent's story breaks free of those constraints and pushes the narrative past Aurora's (Elle Fanning, also returning) sixteenth birthday and on into adulthood where she is now set to wed the re-cast Prince Philip (Harris Dickinson instead of Brenton Thwaites) as they start a life of their own together whereas Maleficent had now inadvertently become something of a mother figure to this young woman she originally cursed and has therefore only recently come to feel as if she's gained the genuine love of what she might describe as a family. Jolie's Maleficent exudes this gracefulness as embodied through the strong presence of Jolie herself as she is not only a warrior and commander, but a woman who is complex in her deep, emotional feelings that the film demonstrates are also possible for someone of such strong nature to possess. It is this characterization and the breaking of such long-standing archetypes that truly allows this sequel to outshine not only its predecessor, but the majority of these live-action Disney re-makes or re-tellings. Director Joachim Rønning (Kon-Tiki, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) takes over from Robert Stromberg and brings with him an aesthetic less reliant on big, CGI spectacle (though there is still plenty of this) and a visual prowess more interested in broadening the scope of the world the first film only hinted at. At the same time, Linda Woolverton's screenplay brings together a trifecta of female characters that serve as the heart and soul of the themes of the narrative coalescing in a sequel that not only surpasses the quality of the original (which, admittedly-was not a high bar) by doing everything that original wanted to do, only better.
Where to begin...Angelina Jolie is the best, I really like Elle Fanning too; But to see Michelle Pfieffer playing a evil woman was FANTASTIC!!! I cried ( YOU WILL SEE WHY ) And not to spoil those who will buy this, I am so glad they made a 2nd movie especially to see more winged fey like Angelina' s character. I had to go back and watch first again since Prince Phillip person acting him was changed for the better. Also to see differences in Angelina. Truth is this movie would NOT SELL if she was replaced or not cast. Love the story line. And ESPECIALLY the extras included. I bought 4k, blu-ray and DVD to have all DVD needed for travel. Digital is how I share with friends and family. Thank you for price reduction on blu-ray/ DVD combo. And with best buy shipping got movies first thing Tuesday Jan 14th in am. You got to buy it renting will NEVER be enough!!
Beautiful movie! Loved the appealing colorful visuals and the fantasy of it all. Not sure why some reviewers are so negative. I mean, it's a movie - it's not supposed to be real! Love Angelina Jolie of course and I did wish to see more of her in it, perhaps kicking more butt, but that would compromise her deep integrity and authenticity as classy Maleficent. Gotta say that there’s no one else like Angelina Jolie and she adds a magical touch like Aurora’s finger to the spindle in every movie she’s in. Also felt a sense of female empowerment throughout the film, not in a feminist way, but displaying the mental and physical fortitude of the dominant women played by Jolie, Pfeiffer, and Fanning - great combo and performance. Men were still respected like the good King John. Enjoyed and appreciated racially diverse faces throughout the movie like Jolie's real children; not many movies embrace global peoples. Costume and make-up was gorgeous. Witty, romantic, comedic, light, dark, love, pain, war, peace, and more... all the dynamic elements of a story is there. And Bebe Rexha’s song “You Can’t Stop the Girl” added a perfect thematic touch of strength and confidence during the end credits!
A:AnswerBestbuy has it in stock. I hope you grab it in time. I had a problem finding it for about a month. I reserved mine online and it was the last one at the time. If you haven’t seen it yet it is a great movie. Enjoy!
