“With widespread death and destruction, this fairytale costume drama is by no means a child’s play. However, it has enough live-action magic to bring the big screen alive.” – Ronak Kotecha from Times of India
“An improvement on the first film, in the end, and an encouraging rallying cry against fear and intolerance, but it’s still far too busy and baroque to match its leading lady’s elegance.” – Helen O’Hara from Empire
The level of violence in this PG-rated film is dismaying, the computer-generated battle scenes make no visual or strategic sense. – Joe Morgenstern from Wall Street Journal

“A film that Disney does right by the Disney Brand. There is enough emotional friction narrative from family, duty, community, society with a heavy emphasis on love and forgiveness and letting go via having the nature of a resurrecting phoenix.”
“It’s another Disney fantasy where the light wins over the darkness but here Maleficent is the light and she is the darkness too…”
“Another great cinematography to enjoy! However, this movie by any means is not easy on the young audience, if you child is under 9, he/she may find some impressionable scenes and definitely NOT for little siblings that will get frightened and start crying during scenes of sorcery, creatures or light vs darkness.”
