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…
Walt Disney Animation Studios' 50th animated feature does carry the label of the most expensive animation film ever made but it is also noteworthy for reversing the odds in the legendary studio's favour for Tangled marks the commencement of Disney's Revival Era and begins the studio's long-awaited resurgence towards its lost glory.
Tangled tells the story of Rapunzel, a young princess whose magical hair have healing properties, for which she was kidnapped by an old witch who then raises her as her own child. Having spent her entire life in an isolated tower, Rapunzel is curious to explore the world outside, and ultimately leaves her home to embark on a magnificent journey of self-discovery.
Co-directed by Nathan Greno & Byron Howard,…
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.
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…
i liked the chameleon chameleon needs more time on screen
I personally liked this a lot more than Frozen; the characters are great, the story is great and the movie was funny as hell. The songs are a little weak at places, but for the most part this is very, very good.
Tres old fashioned, in a good way. Hottest Disney prince since Eric.

16. A musical
Tangled is Disney’s modern take on the Rapunzel fairy tale which I had a surprisingly good time watching.
I found Tangled to be a charming little film that, despite having a fairly predictable narrative, was an entertaining and pretty funny watch. I laughed far more than I expected to and I also enjoyed the dynamics between many of the characters, particularly between the seemingly overconfident Flynn Rider and Rapunzel. ‘The smolder’ gave me a good laugh.
I still don’t think Disney has gotten to the level of their Renaissance period (Lion King, Aladdin, etc) and a big reason for that is due to…
Shut away from the world in an impossibly high tower with no stairs down, a young girl named Rapunzel with her magically long hair dreams of getting away. Her chance arrives when an unexpected thief on the run comes crashing through her window. As she sets out for the first time little does she know the mysteries of her past are not too far away.
I was really apprehensive about giving this Disney flick another go, but ultimately as Disney often does it surprised me. The animation was pretty good and I liked the characters a lot more this time around. I also thought the soundtrack was really good and it was well paired with the action on the scene.…
This story is just heartwarming in all of its sake. One of my favorite animated films and certainly my favorite Disney Animation Feature Lenght films.
The wildness of everything really shines; sir, it's not just a princess and fairy story, its a story about betrayness, about hope, and overall about dreams coming true.
The way characters develop throughout the film is so organic, while still having simple motivations you really do feel sympathetic about them. The romance is obviously very predictable but it isn't at all a first-sighting love, they acknowledge each other's personalities and eventually fall for them. Heart melting is guaranteed in the final moments of the film. And don't even get me started with "I see the light".
ok so my roommate is watching this rn she watches a different princess movie every night and makes sugar cookies or today it was rice krispie treats ANYWAY we had to sing this song and dance to it in choir and I hated choir because we had a male choir director who believed god made man and woman differently and so girls had to act like ladies because that's how god created them and gay marriage was bad because anal sex is an abomination on your body and you can't look each other in the face while doing it (false but what does he know about butt stuff...NOTHING obvi) anyway i had to hear this stupid and at last i hear the light song about a million times and now i hate this movie also fuck all the girls in choir except katya she's cool
Gone Girl (dir. David Fincher) was lit.
It's a nice reminder that you shouldn't let anybody hold you back, especially your wicked step-mum. But I didn't respond favourably to the course events after Rapunzel rappels down her castle wall, nor the horse character. I wanted more of the chameleon and exploration of freedoms.
