Maleficent is one of the strangest films in the Disney canon, both garish and grotesque in its flippantly commercial use of deformed creatures, assaulted women, and a Lana Del Rey cover of “Once Upon a Dream.” …The entirely of Maleficent, when not on Jolie, is indeed the slog of a familiar, contemporary sort, with dragons and another fight sequence as the film’s denouement.

The original movie’s stark sense of good and evil is replaced here by a more nuanced, relativist perspective, which effectively prohibits the sort of nightmarish visions that made Walt Disney’s early animation features so powerful. This looks impressive, though, making use of highly imaginative, state-of-the-art 3-D effects while still evoking old-school Disney animation (even the wide-screen compositions seem to be modeled on those of the original).

In undercutting and reversing her villainy, Stromberg and screenwriter Linda Woolverton (who wrote both the wonderful Lion King and the ghastly Tim Burton version of Alice in Wonderland, by the way) do find an intriguing new way into the story. But they’re a bit too enamored of their revisionism, and they don’t quite know what to do with the rest of the tale.
