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…
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…
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…
Bonita a rabiar y divertidisima. No me llegó tanto como Frozen, pero sigue siendo estupenda.
high energy. the design language is beautiful. not quite quite as satisfying as renaissance disney, but there's enough here to enjoy. the wit (should we call it that?) is a bit derivative of shrek, as if dreamworks had not already made the fairy tale a colloquial experience.
Really poor. Annoying, boring characters; annoying, boring songs; annoying, boring story. The thing that makes me most angry is that there are some scenes that are entirely void of dialogue or even 'mouth sounds' like breathing or exclamation or anything that simply kill the world they're trying to create and it reeks of cutting corners by the production team.
The closing credits animation had more personality and was more visually interesting than the rest of the film.
AKA The Hairy Princess.
My favorite of the late Disney's and the 3D animated Disney's. In my opinion Disney lost it's touch in a lot of features before this but found themelves again in Tangled. This is the movie where the Disney magic is finally there again. The best example is the beautiful lantern scene accompanied by one of the best Disney songs in years. I was not a big fan of 3D animated movies before this and still latching on to the old school 2D animation but Tangled really was convincing and drew me more in the movie than any other 3D animation had done before that. The animation is just stunning. The characters are a lot of fun. And the great sidekicks are back. This time as Pascal and Maximus. Love that duo. Actually love everything about Tangled.
There's so much to like about this movie, including fun characters, a quick wit and some enjoyable songs. The biggest problem with the film is its prologue, which reeks of studio interference. It outlines the major characters and details their motivations, which rips away the drama from many scenes throughout the film. Remove that prologue and this movie would be one of Disney's best.
I. LOVE. TANGLED.
Fun movie. Didn't love the tunes. Rapunzel is pretty hot I guess, if you're into that.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Mostly, loved it. They did the non-speaking characters, Pascale and Maximus exTREMEly well. Top marks.
But when Rapunzel realizes that she's the lost princess, it's because she subconsciously drew the sun insignia of the kingdom all over her ceiling, and it makes her remember being in her crib as a baby. Come onnnn. And then her tears heal things?! How did she not figure this out before when she scraped her knee and cried as a child?!
But overall, really good. Hate to say it, but they really did do some details much better than Frozen, like the reindeer/horse behaving like a dog...
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…
