Angelina jolie has done a great job. Her modulation is superb. No one can do justice to that role except Angelina jolie. Her timming is a treat to watch. Sharlto Copley is not bad as stefan. He exhibited his acting prowess after assumed the throne. Sleeping beauty is played by elle fanning, she did a good job. Rest of the cast has supported very well.
Go for this movie with no hesitation.
