They're taking adventure to new lengths.
When the kingdom's most wanted-and most charming-bandit Flynn Rider hides out in a mysterious tower, he's taken hostage by Rapunzel, a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair. Flynn's curious captor, who's looking for her ticket out of the tower where she's been locked away for years, strikes a deal with the handsome thief and the unlikely duo sets off on an action-packed escapade, complete with a super-cop horse, an over-protective chameleon and a gruff gang of pub thugs.
Better than Frozen.
It's official. My heart is no longer a solid, but a liquid. The unrelenting and unforgiving adorability which Tangled marinates itself in has a 99.98% success rate of completely melting your heart - I have been informed. It's a smartly subversive adventure which stylishly modernizes facets that were customary in the source material. This bouncy re-imagining also considerably modifies plot points as to infuse a certain independence in the narrative - which is implemented fruitfully. The colours are wild, the characters are wild, the songs are wildly entertaining and the emotion is wildly substantial (in other words, I cried...a lot.....it was actually an embarrassing amount of tears). An exceptionally beautiful addition to the fairytale hierarchy.
Tangled is an incalculably sharp…
After the disappointing The Princess and the Frog we finally get the first decent traditional Disney story in years. It sticks closely to the familiar Disney fairytale template, some may find it a dated formula but I still think it works very well and it is not as if this type of film is that common in cinemas anymore. It does deviate in two clear ways; the lack of talking animals and a more ambiguous villain, and both changes work a treat. The two animal characters are fantastic, full of character but not necessarily taking over the film. They aren't overused to provide all the laughs like many comic relief characters often are. The villain is also excellent, she felt…
The Good: Endearing characters, especially the two animal sidekicks, Pascal the chameleon and Max the horse. Top-notch CG animation and designs. Excellent voice acting from Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Donna Murphy, and company. A bunch of genuinely hilarious moments. (Who wouldn't laugh at the closet scene or Rapunzel's bipolar montage?) A couple of really catchy songs ('When Will My Life Begin?' and 'I See the Light') by Alan Menken. The epic lantern sequence. Frying pans, who knew? High replay value.
The Bad: Nothing major.
The Bottom Line: Tangled is one of those charming, magical films that's simply impossible not to love. Great entertainment for all ages -- yes, even grown men and women -- and a welcome return to form for Disney. Recommended.
And so concludes my annual (ok, semi-annual...ok, five times per year) rewatch of Tangled, a movie that I seem to grow more emotionally moved by with each and every rewatch. It's a film bathed in a beautiful, slight glow, and that's how it makes me feel...taken care of...joyous.
Tangled is the story of Rapunzel and a coming-of-age story for young girls who want to find out what they want from life, but it's also the story of Disney and how different this film is in so many ways from what they've done previously. The first thing that ever struck me about this film is that Rapunzel looks young, and not "hot" and young, but rather, she doesn't look like an…
My girlfriend got to choose a movie tonight and well, it at least was a lot less annoying than ‘Frozen’ to start off positive. Depicting the well-known story of Rapunzel, ‘Tangled’ is perhaps the most self aware Disney feature to date, which in the introduction was a bit obnoxious, but which also resulted in some funny scenes later on. As such, this was a bit of an in-betweener in that it oscillated between finely worked out self laughter and the overly common random songs and dances. And not that I’ll burn a children’s movie to the ground for having them, but boy this plot sure made use of some deus ex machinas in order to overcome the bits and pieces…
Watched with one eye. Liked and disliked gender stuff.

Like Frozen, another fun Disney film which takes a few lessons from Pixar without losing its' identity. It's genuinely funny and oddball in places (a fight scene between an narcissistic rogue holding a frying pan and a psychotic horse with a sword in its' mouth!) but still plays the main plot with enough of a straight bat to avoid becoming too arch.
Also like Frozen, it may lose its' charm after fifty or sixty viewings...
Fantastic Disney animated movie is better, in every way, than (the still very good) Frozen, especially in the songs department.
A testament to the power of visual storytelling. The king and queen characters speak no words and occupy the most emotionally cathartic scene in the film. TANGLED is one of the strongest Disney endeavors in years, with a strong villain and key supporting players. The lantern scene is almost tear-inducing in its splendor. Truly a gorgeous fucking film.
(The fairy tale of Rapunzel is one of my favorites.) I LOVE THE PLOT AND THE CHARACTERS. FLYNN AND THE HORSE AND THE MOTHER, HELL EVEN THE HORSE AND THE CAMELOT, HAD THEIR OWN PERSONALITIES AND WERE NOT ONE DIMENSIONAL. THE GRAPHICS WERE STUNNING OCH THE SONGS WERE WONDERFUL. I LOVE THIS MOVIE SO MUCH GOD
ending got me emotional bruh
A bit too Shreky for my liking, which is ok for Dreamworks but not the house of mouse. Thankfully Frozen took the best kid friendly elements of this and married it to a classicism seen in the best Disney movies to create a new masterpiece, so it is important in that respect.
Disney Princess League film #11;
Good songs, predictable plot, one sign of originality... the glowing hair that possess healing powers, comedic moments coming from Flynn/ Eugen and the horse, and the animation is just... BLOW, YOUR, MIND!!!
(8/10)-Knock your socks off
'' All right, listen! I didn't want to have to do this, but you leave me no choice. Here comes the smolder.''
Combined the average ratings (Critic's & Users) from IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and Letterboxd, and then weighted and tweaked the results…
Chances are the first movie you ever saw was animation. Exuberant, colorful and full of wonder, animation is the stuff…
