Tangled movie review - Aussieboyreviews


Don’t avoid this movie after you judge it as appearing as a typical princess tale, because you’ll end up missing a lot. Despite some mild violence, it’s quite a hopeful and lovely film.


Rapunzel is a naive young girl with magic hair who has spent her entire life locked up in a tower by her protective mother. But when a good-hearted thief, Flynn, stumbles into her home, he takes her out to experience the outside world and find her true identity.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Tangled certainly appears as an ordinary “lost-princess” tale, which would be a reason for anyone to avoid. However, it’s actually an amazingly moving animation with gigantic heart and genuine excitement. For children, teens and adults, this Disney journey is a sensational experience; definitely a must-select for family movie nights.

Starting off with what this film would be completely dull without, is the animation. Because it’s seriously not just the beautiful, bright and adorable visuals; it’s pretty much every single segment that animations use. Alongside the visually phenomenal detail, the voice performances are beyond perfect. The striking voices of Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi and Donna Murphy each perfectly fit their charming characters. Plus there’s a perfect, simply perfect, selection of bright songs with appealing lyrics.

Many kids will believe they’re too grown up for an old Disney princess story, but any age and anyone can watch this movie. It’s likely they’ll finish feeling surprised at how great and fun it was. Tangled isn’t a constantly-dramatic princess whining about the tower she’s spent her life in; it’s a positive and charming girl who is a princess without knowing it, who was kidnapped as a baby and has been raised by a strange and kind of creepy woman, Mother Gothel. The film’s adventure is packed with uplifting messages, which are also improved by the voice acting. You’ll undeniably adore this magical and lovely story.
