WHAT I LIKE?
Maleficent 2: Mistress of Evil is a worthy-sequel of one of the well-loved Dark Tales in the Disney Universe. What I like about the film is its solid follow-through in terms of plot and conflict. I really admired the story arcs in the 2nd installment. It was a brilliant idea to discover the origin of Maleficent and explore the idea of marriage between Aurora and Prince Philip. The conflict material really complimented well with the improved visual effects, cinematography and impressive Production design. Maleficent 2 is really at par in terms of Editing this time. Scenes are both visually-compelling & engaging. I really like how they mix romance, drama and action into one breath-taking and awesome cinematic masterpiece. Along with your well-loved characters, Maleficent 2 draws its strength with its stellar cast headlined by Angeline Jolie herself. Angelina still gave her classic and memorable portrayal as Maleficent. This time, their screen time with Aurora (Fanning) is much appreciated and felt. It was just pure joy to see the Jolie-Fanning tandem on-screen. Acting chops are impressive too. Prince Philip is too adorable not to appreciate too. What I like about Maleficent 2 is its risk in going around a heartbreaking Climax and battle scene that became an emotional whirlwind for audiences. Overall, I am impressed with this 2nd installment.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
Well, the fact that I haven’t seen any topless of Prince Philip yet. NAAAAH! Maleficent 2 is still the best so far. OOOPS!
