Disney's CGI-animated comedy adventure which retells the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale 'Rapunzel'. While hiding out in a seemingly abandoned tower deep in the forest, handsome young bandit Flynn Rider (voice of Zachary Levi) is surprised to discover that the tower does in fact have an occupant in the form of feisty long-haired teen Rapunzel (Mandy Moore). Rapunzel, who has been looking for a means of escape from the tower in which she has been grounded for her entire life, strikes a deal with the dashing outlaw and the unlikely pair soon find themselves caught up in the adventure of a lifetime as they face magic, monsters and villains in their quest for freedom.

This was the most hilarous film I have seen for ages. There were five of us who went to see it at the cinema, three of whom were children my daughter aged 4, my son aged 8 and our Chinese student who is nearly 12. We all thoroughly enjoyed the film with some great laugh out load moments. The film has a number of songs throughout which is typical Disney style but it's not too cheesy. It's a brilliant Disney film and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Disney films or humour similar to that found in the Shrek films.

Probably the best Disney has done to date. There's so much for everyone in the family. The funniest characters are Maximus the horse and pascal the chameleon. The kids haven't stopped watching it even though they saw it at the cinema. Brilliant!
At first glance Tangled may be mistaken for a typical fairy tale, a wistful story of a helpless princess and a gallant hero. Let me assure you, this is a refreshingly original, bold, fresh adaptation of the much loved Brothers Grimm fairy tale.
The story is loosely based on the original story, with main plot elements such as Rapunzel's hair having magical attributes. Without giving too much away, the plot basically follows her on a quest with a dashingly goofy young man named Flynn Rider. The pace is perfect, keeping the attention of younger children but also taking time to allow character development. Flynn breaks all conventional moulds of a knight in shining armour, the scene where he attempts to serenade Rapunzel with the line "how you doing?" shows how Disney have wisely given this film a modern twist to make sure they connect with audiences which may be more familiar with shows such as "Hannah Montana".
The animation is gorgeous, every movement is fluid, bursting with life. Rapunzels eyes widen in curiosity (Flynns sparkle with mischief), her brow furrows in frustration, the audience will have no trouble believing that she is really experiencing the adventure of a lifetime. Tangled was reportedly in production for around six years, but the final result shows it was worth every day. The visuals are absolutely stunning. Disney have been known to have a painstakingly dedicated love to their films, and this is no exception. The three dimensional painting technique Disney spent years refining has truly paid off. Tangled has the warmth of a hand drawn marvel but also flaunts the 3D depth and detail that make it worthy of accolades. Tangled is a pleasure to watch, with sharp and witty dialogue running alongside the slick animation.
Tangled provides a laugh a minute, and although some jokes may fall flat with older members of the audience, the sheer hilarity of watching Flynn bumble through a forest running for his life makes this an entertaining film to watch.
Tangled isn't all laughs though, there are deeper messages and elegant meanings within the plot. Themes such as love, freedom and betrayal all feature too, showing that Disney has not lost any of its original magic.
As with any worthy Disney movie, there are several songs scattered throughout the film. These serve well to entertain the younger viewers, (watch out for a murderous villain banging away on a piano) and also help the films pace and plot. The musical score is impressive, it is evident that Disney have not rushed this film at any stage. What really makes this film sparkle is the connection the characters on screen have with their dialogue. Rapunzel and Flynn have definite chemistry on screen together, which is an impressive feat considering both of them are animated. No detail has been overlooked in Tangled, it exudes the love and nurturing nature that has helped Disney capture so many hearts.
Tangled may be seen as predictable at times, but as with any Disney film, there are certain parts that will be generic. Some adults will pick apart the films plot and poke holes in the story, but the job of this film is to entertain, it's not a deep thinker. Tangled's fast paced, witty humour keeps everyone engaged, the bold and modern stance Disney have taken will sit well with most viewers.
Disney have set the bar very high with their first CGI fairy tale, its fast paced plot, witty exchanges and true hilarity, mixed with more poignant and touching moments make it a real gem and definite to watch. Clocking in at around one hour forty minutes, this will be 100 magical minutes for anyone who loves a happily ever after.
