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.
A little heavy on the singing, but its still better than Frozen.
Tangled goes back to the tried and true Disney formula that always seems to deliver. A nice balance between characters makes them all memorable here. Maximus was still my favorite though. Normally I'd ignore a film with such an obvious central love story, but a friend of mine said I'd enjoy it so I gave it a shot. Funny and heartwarming without putting the love story first.
I honestly thought I'd hate it after watching disappointments like Frozen. It doesn't quite dethrone WALL-E as my favorite animation. While the main character was naïve at least she had a reason for it unlike some previous Disney princesses. Even Flynn isn't some perfect white knight which is a nice change in that both characters are hardly flawless. Rapunzel doesn't exactly fit the damsel in distress model either as she can defend herself.
Impressive and a lot of fun.

I came into this retelling of Rapunzel with high hopes. The heroine seemed perky, the story seemed fun, the animation looked great. But after about half an hour two big problems emerged, and never went away.
First, none of the characters are all that likeable. Rapunzel is fine and peppy, but her only motivation is to see a lantern show which is rather wet. The main supporting guy is a bit of a shit, and is shown to be a thief who'll betray his companions. Everyone else is pretty much a baddie, except for the the people in the pub who don't seem to show any kind of consistency at all. And the horse, surprisingly complex though he is, is…
Simply put, this is an absolute treat. Tangled is wholly enjoyable, it's full of great laughs (one which I laughed uncontrollably at, even on seeing it for a second time), excellent voice acting, a great soundtrack and some truly beautiful visuals. As hyped as it was I didn't expect to get swept up in it. Damn you, Disney.
Stunning visuals, a well-developed plot, an interesting cast of side-characters. An old fairytale come alive that sets the standard for other animated fairytale movies. An excellent treat for all ages.
Overrated Disney film that brings nothing new to the table.
Such colourful fun.
A note on the viewing: HD. 2K. SVoD.
I saw this movie with a girl that I used to like. I don't think the movie holds up if you watch it alone. Watch it with someone, it will be more enjoyable that way.
Thanks to stunning visuals, charming characters, a heartfelt story, and humor that thankfully isn't delivered by a transparent comic-relief sidekick, "Tangled" feels like Disney's most underrated creation.
