Tangled Review

Premise:



Standouts:
The animation is truly beautiful in this film, and since it's the second most expensive movie ever made, it should have been. It's like they individually animated each strand of hair. Also the scenery in a lot of scenes is really astounding. (Actually, a lot of the money making it one of the most expensive movies ever made went into the frequent restart attempts over the last decade to make the film.) I also thought the movie was as funny as I hoped it would be, and didn't degrade male characters to being empty shells in a female-driven film. Flynn Rider's backstory could have been given more oompf but he was still a frequent highlight in scenes. Something somewhat negative that stood out though was the message it sent to children about obeying/rebelling against your parents. I thought the evil "mother" character should have been a lot more deliberate in her evil ways rather than the way they went about it. More Evil Step-Sisters from Cinderella and less... real-life.


My Highlights:
The Bar Scene, the Frying Pan Brainings, the Little Old Man, and Flynn Rider's attempts at charm.


Overall Rating:
The animation, the the story, and especially the casting choices were all really done well. I won't give it a perfect score because I felt some things could have been done differently, and by that I mean better, but it was still an excellent film. 4 1/2 *'s out of 5, or 9 *'s out of 10.


When You Should see It:
If you're not against watching kids movies while not babysitting or being a parent, you should see it right away. But if you need to be in one of those positions to enjoy it, then watch this as soon as you're in that position because it's great.

  1. I think this movie is great for anyone. It is great for kids because there is good laughs, and fun characters, but it is fun for adults because majority of adults know the story of Rapunzel, so it is a silly twist. Every time I see this movie, it makes me laugh! My favorites were the horse, Maximus, and the chameleon, Pascal. They made the movie awesome! It was one of the best movies that Disney has come out with. I just finished watching this movie on DISH Online and it was great. I love DISH Online because it lets me watch all kinds of TV shows and movies whenever I want! As a customer and employee of DISH Network, I have been using DISH Online for a long time and it is great! I encourage anyone and everyone to take a look at dishonline.com to see what I am talking about! It has something for everyone, whether you’re a customer or not!
