The untold story of Disney's most iconic villain from the 1959 classic 'Sleeping Beauty'.

Maleficent rises to be the land's fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal – an act that begins to turn her heart into stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading King's successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora.

Maleficent is the fairy godmother gone wrong. An evil fairy places a curse on an infant. The dark fairy later learns that the infant may be the savior of the world. The infant will fall into an eternal sleep “like death” before her 16th birthday. This parental guide to the movies does not agree with the rating that the MPAA has given this movie. They have been much too lenient.

This is a dark and intense movie with battles with scary creatures. This one was rated PG for scenes of fantasy action and violence. This family movie review thinks that his is much too intense for a PG movie. This is violent movie with fights between skeletons, monsters, fairy, and other very dark creatures. It shows violent medieval battle scenes. The battle scenes are similar to those on Narnia or Lord of the Rings. They are much too intense for those under the age of 10.

At one point, a character tells another character to “bring him the head” of the princess. Several heroes must fight a fire breathing dragon in an intense scene. This movie is made for gamers and those who like to play World of Warcraft. Fan of the game will find the movie to be a fun version of the game as the lead female characters fight in a dark and frightening world. The move is filled with dark characters and dark images.

This version of the sleeping beauty tells the back story that happened before the famous Disney movie. This movie is not just a retelling of the Cinderella story. It goes into Maleficent’s motivations and what drove her to become evil. The story is a new twist on an old classic. The characters were taken from the Disney version, but they have been given a scarier side in this movie than in the Disney version. This movie has s dark and gothic feel throughout. In the opinion of this family movie review, this movie should have been rated as PG-13, particularly when one compares it to other PG-13 movies of the same genre. It promises to be a treat for fantasy movie goers, but it is much too intense to be considered a PG.
