Maleficent watches this little girl grow up and began to realised she’s the key to a peaceful kingdom.
Like all Disney movie, there’s always a happy ending. For this movie, the happy ending was definitely a plot twist which I truly never expect it in the first place.
The movie taught me that a kind person who gets betrayed may turn changed into someone completely different. And that a person who acted kind towards you may have an ulterior motive from you. I have learnt not to trust people easily through this movie. Finally a movie from Disney that showed the reality of the world instead of all the fantasy it used to portray the world as.
As for the curse breaking magic, true love’s kiss. I am happy that this movie showed me something different. True love’s kiss comes in many form, it does not necessary comes from your partner in a relationship. It can be from a family member or someone close to you that is not related by blood.
Would I recommend this movie? Definitely. Absolutely.
My ratings: 4.5/5
