    I'm personally not that big on musicals, because they don't have plot and they usually think that by singing a miserable song everything will be alright so most of the times I put them a low score. But when I saw Descendants, my first impression was the contrary. Disney had a very well intention to recreate the next generation of villains, which at this point it works.

Maybe its intention was to demonstrate villains have heartfelt and they are not like its parents. A huge positive review were the songs, which honestly I liked them (well most of them). So overall imagine me giving it a positive review, although it's a musical. I think it's a very entertaining movie BUT JUST FOR kids and for teenagers (70%) Expand

    Best Disney Channel Movie Ever!!!!!

    If you like fairy tales, the classical Disney movies and Once Upon a Time you will love this movie. It makes you laugh, it makes you cry and when it ends it makes you watch it again. The songs are beautiful, the acting is perfect, the script is well written, but the visual effects aren't that good, but that's only 1% of the movie. Trust me, it's enjoyable.

    Thanks to winning performances by Cameron, Chenoweth and others, it's a flick the family can sit down and enjoy.

    Granted, one might wish the focus tilted a bit more heavily toward the adults--Kristin Chenoweth as Maleficent steals every scene she’s in--or that the second half wasn’t as heavily padded. Still, the songs are clever, the look is sumptuous, and the idea is so good it goes down easy even if the broth’s a trifle undercooked.

    The rather flimsy story is strung together by musical numbers--some stronger than others.
