What do you usually expect from movie sequels? I can assume that you are skeptical of them, because in the world there are too few second parts that surpass the original in their quality. I hasten to please you: we have worked on the sequel as it should, so there should be no cause for alarm.
Plot. We will be told about the complex relationship of Maleficent and Aurora. In addition, there is a new threat to the peace of the two kingdoms …
ItÂs great that the authors took into account some errors of the first part, got rid of the straightforwardness of the narrative and delved into the topic of character development. We do not know anything about the past of the Maleficent, so it was important to use this fact. The story turned out to be interesting and unexpectedly catchy. The themes of the outbreak of war are intertwined in it by an incorrect interpretation of thoughts, a contrived quarrel and a final rethinking of values. I liked the decision to introduce a third party into the conflict and the subsequent disclosure of its participants. If the creators would still be able to deal with the relations of the two main heroines to each other … And then they either love each other, then they disown it.
Atmosphere. From the very beginning of the viewing, I drew attention to the careful attention to detail. The life of even the smallest creatures whose size does not exceed a blade of grass is shown. The picture has both depth and drama … all that is necessary for a great movie. The camera work has been realized beyond praise: all these flights in the sky, bird’s-eye views of the kingdoms attract the eye so much that it can sometimes be difficult to divert. Young viewers will love the tomfoolery at the beginning of the tape and the overabundance of cuteness. But I cannot guarantee that this will work for adults. I would also like to note a great acting game, and I would especially like to highlight Michelle Pfeiffer (Queen Ingrit). Thanks to her talent, some scenes turn into real madness. Moreover, her character is also well thought out. Angelina Jolie (Maleficent) and El Fanning (Aurora) I would put in second place. It is a pity that the picture also has sores. The film was clearly overdone with self-sacrifice. It is normal when this technique is used once. But when the same thing happens about five times in an hour, then it frankly begins to bother. It is impossible not to notice the slowness and stupid inaction of the heroes in some situations, and excessive tolerance, randomly stuck here and there, greatly damages the tape.
Music. The magnificent music of Jeff Zanelli is well suited to this movie and perfectly completes the integrity of the picture of the magical world.
Total. In my opinion, ÂLady of Darkness turned out to be no worse than the first part, and at some points she even managed to surpass the original. It turned out suddenly good. It will be useful for many viewers to watch the tape, since they are quite simple, but from this no less important truths are presented incredibly easily.
