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.
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.
Even better than the fairy-tale...
Tangled is a rather stunning, beautiful achievement.
I'm turning soft.
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…
I'm not a big fan of this type of Disney film, (I'm more of a Pixar guy) but this one was pretty good and great for kids.
Rapunzel! Why hadn't Disney taken the story in a motion picture before? For being the 50th film of the Disney animation studios, it is a film that surpasses expectations and preconceived notions, with an effective touch of modernity.
3D animation captures motions and emotions that traditional animation can't. I do not support one animation style more than the other; as long as the advantages offered by every means at disposal are utilized in the wisest of ways, from purposes of comedic physical actions to capture tenderness, from constructing musical numbers and exploring visually rich scenarios to direct action sequences, the animation style is everything and creating a world is possible.
From my personal experience and point of view, 3D can…
The colour palette in this film is just so lovely, mixed in with the humour this is up there with the Disney greats. Also no.100 on my December Project!
interesting to watch this again after having seen FROZEN.
i loved this when it came out and saw it four times in theaters. i still like it a lot.
This is classic Disney in almost every sense of the word.
FROZEN subverts the classic Disney stuff whereas TANGLED thrives on it.
the art is gorgeous. the animation is flawless. the compositions are perfect. the direction is amazing - it's directed like a true Disney film whereas FROZEN didn't hit the same points.
i'm not sure which i like more. but i love both.
Tangled is my favorite "kids" film of the moment. Mostly because the rewatchability is so high. I just love everything about this one...the story... the colors bursting in HD...the frying pan. Having an almost 3 year old means watching a lot of cartoons and many things over and over and over again. Tangled I don't mind so much. It is however a bit dark for a child that age. But the songs are so addicting for them, it's so much fun to watch her face being melted off by the music. I imagine it's like watching a Kansas City crack whore drool over a vial.
Long story short, the real reason I am writing this review is the frying pan.…
Never actually saw this until recently, and was only driven to see it because I saw Frozen. Decent movie with plenty of laughs, but the story is fairly predictable and the songs are completely forgettable. Despite the complaints the clever characters and jokes keep it from being boring.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
[English/ Spanish review]
There must be something wrong with me, but after several views, this Disney's 50th animated motion picture has become my non-Pixar favourite.
Debe haber algo mal en mí, pero después de muchos visionados, este 50ª film de animación de Disney se ha convertido en mi favorito, Pixar aparte.
That's a very charitable "3 out of 5 stars".
I caught the second half of this movie on TV a few days ago, checked Amazon, and saw that it was only $15, which is cheap for a Disney Blu-ray. I was enjoying watching the film, so I figured it would be a good idea to own the full picture and watch it again whenever I wanted.
The biggest problem with Tangled is that I've now seen Frozen, and Tangled pales horribly in comparison. The songs are perfunctory and surprisingly forgettable when you consider that Alan Menken is behind some of the best songs in Disney musical history. The animation is mostly unimaginative, and it's odd that a princess story should…
No está mal, la historia es bastante buena, tiene momentos divertidos, se pasa rápido y las canciones no están nada mal.
ushering in a new era of disney animation. Wonderful.
In Tangled, the qualities of royalty are inherent, and horses are really, really evolved.
