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…
Não to com muita vontade de escrever nada elaborado sobre esse filme. Mas tenho que concordar a animação é belíssima.
Top 3 to 5 Disney animated movie for me. (Favs are The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, and Lady in the Tramp, in no particular order -- It's hard to choose a true 1-5, since they seem to flex between any particular viewings.) I love the soundtrack, and overall fun factor is high on this one. How this didn't do better in the box office is a shock to me.
"Well, I do like ducklings!"
My 8th time watching. It's the best Disney princess movie imo.. Definitely one of the Disney films in general. The songs are great and so is the score. Zachary Levi and Mandy Moore did Amazing. I can't wait for the TV show to premier. I've been waiting YEARS for them to make it.
Toda la magia de la compañía se adapta de una perfecta al formato de animación por computadora.
Still highly enjoyable. I forgot how much of a comedy this was, and how truly well the slapstick works. If this is essentially Disney's animated fairy tale take on the romantic comedy, it's truly amazing how much better it is than almost all live-action examples of the genre, with romance and comedy that both work extremely well, along with engaging backstories for the two lead characters and some gorgeous setpieces and musical numbers. The plot still clearly follows a formula, but it only really starts to show in the climax--most of the film is so diverting that how predictable it is doesn't really come to mind. This is one of Disney's stronger films from the last few years, a film…
Formulaic but still fresh.
I am not really a fan of Disney Princess-movies, but this one is just awesome!
It's an alright movie, but it's a pretty disappointing DISNEY movie (feels more like something DreamWorks would make).
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
I got my hair cut ridiculously short and that got me thinking about all of those scenes where a woman…
