Maleficent will make some people raging mad

5 second plot: Maleficent's wings are stolen by a soon to be mad king. She curses his newborn baby. On her 16th birthday she will fall into an eternal sleep if she pricks her hand on a spinning wheel. But then Maleficent becomes really fond of the princess. But it's an irreversible curse. Only a true love kiss can save her. And there isn't one available.

5 second review: The fairy tale creatures look cartoonish. Not in a good way. King Stefan looks and talks like a character from Robin Hood: Men in Tights. But there are also some good elements in this film (like the magic and the story of true love) and it is a nice swing on the original story. It's best that you watch this movie only if you're in a happy mindset, because otherwise Angelina Jolie looking at you (a lot!) like she means business could get on your nerves.
