My own personal preferences on this one are going to be ignored and completely overlooked and if you want a critics review, check out Radio 1. So what exactly am I going to write?
Well - its a celebration.
This is Disney's 50th full animation picture. All those years since Steam Boat Willie puffed onto the Silver Screen, Disney have been delighting audiences world wide - each time leading advancements in animation and technology and here we are, 2011 and Disney's take on the classic story of Rapunzel.
So can I argue the animation? - of course not!! with the competition from Dreamworks & Pixar constantly battling down then door its going to be tough trying to get a movie made that does NOT look awesome!!!
So lets talk the 3D - its really good!!! even the Lanterns might draw a tear from the hardest of you!!
The cast - Brilliant - Disney have once again made a character, this time a chameleon (even without voice!) steal a show with its eyes, emotion and tongue? As for the voices - look out for a Hellboy (Ron Pearlman) appearance as one of the Stabbington Brothers and the main 3, (all predominantly TV actors) are smooth, funny and........well, Disney!
So for a non-critical blog I am starting to get a little critical!! Okay, so in my opinion its not as laugh out loud funny as I thought it would be but please don't let that put you off. Its not for you............its for your kids - and they will love it over and over again.
Disney captures amazing animation, great 3D & toe tapping tunes like it does time after time and the stars of this one are easily the wannabe dreamers (you will know who they are) - even though one does sound very much like Vin Diesel (but alas, its not). Just picture him in an all singing / all dancing number in the tavern and this alone should put a grin upon your face!
Celebrate February in style - take the kids to see Tangled - Its the first time Rapunzel has made the big screen and the "added" plot lines, inserted to beef out a relatively short tale make this a wonderful family movie.
Definitely go for the 3D - don't be cheap!
See this if...................................Disney ever made you smile!!! at any age. :)
