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.
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…
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.
An animated Disney film that I totally love. Warm, funny and fun, pretty much the perfect recipe for the type of film I need to watch as the winter storm rages outside.
I never really hear much about Tangled, so I assume I am the minority here. Everything about this film works for me. The music is enchanting, the animation is vivid and gorgeous, not a single moment bores me and it even manages to dip into a bit of emotional territory.
You could do a lot worse than this when it comes to family friendly film.
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…
Another fantastical example of Disney animation at a peak. A greatly enjoyable film with amazing style and flair. 'I See the Light' is a fantastic song and segment of the film which excellently bundles the emotion of the film into a lovely moment.
This film is, and will always be pure magic for me.
The gorgeous art, character design, animation cinematography is rapturous. The music, from "I See the Light" to "Mother Knows Best" is well-written and gorgeously carried by strong vocals, while the instrumental songs, such as Kingdom Dance is exciting, whimsical, and appropriate without being overpowering.
But the beauty in Tangled truly lies in its unconventional characters. All the characters all fully fleshed out with complex personalities despite their affiliation with good or bad, or both.
Gothel is absolutely one of the most fascinating Disney villains ever created because you don't want to hate her -- you want to believe that she truly does have love and concern for Rapunzel.
While "The Little Mermaid" started the Disney Renaissance, I believe this movie started the Second Coming of Disney. The films that followed this were "Wreck-It Ralph" and "Frozen". Need I say more? Not only were those films great (actually, haven't seen "Frozen", but I've only heard good things) but so was this film that will revive Disney with some golden hair and beautiful singing, its "Tangled".
"Tangled" tells the story of a girl named Rapunzel, loosely based off the fairy tale. Rapunzel has very long magic hair that can be used somewhat as a Fountain of Youth. A woman kidnaps Rapunzel at birth and locks her in a tower to keep herself young. Rapunzel is manipulated into believing this woman…
Nachdem ich von KÜSS DEN FROSCH eher enttäuscht war, hatte ich eigentlich kein großes Interesse daran, mir RAPUNZEL anzusehen. Aber der guten Kritiken wegen habe ich ihm dann doch noch eine Chance gegeben.
Und ich muss sagen: Nicht schlecht, mir hat sogar ziemlich viel daran ziemlich gut gefallen. Die Mischung aus Märchensetting und modernen Tönen hat erstaunlich gut funktioniert, besser als in früheren Versuchen Disneys, diese beiden Dinge zu vereinen. Der Humor hat meistens gut gepasst, was bei den Hauptcharakteren genauso auffällt wie bei den - Überraschung! - sidekicks. Ja tatsächlich, ausnahmsweise nerven sie mal nicht, sondern das Pferd und das Chameleon waren eine echte Bereicherung. Wohl auch gerade deshalb, weil sie nicht gesprochen haben.
Die Stiefmutter hat als Bösewicht…
The songs in Frozen are better but all in all I think Tangled is a better film.
Crappy songs and a lame plot. Definitely a far cry from those early '90s classics.
Yep, it's a Disney movie. The horse is good and earns the movie an extra half star. The rest of it is a bit pish though (unless you're a five year old girl).
