The stylized physiques and movements of the characters in this exciting animated musical-romance-adventure are at once realist and fantastic.
No classic, but very enjoyable.
Simply a smashingly well-done example of animated storytelling.
It's both a little scary and a lot funny, and kids will no doubt lap it up.
So far, the most entertaining film of the year.
| Original Score: 4/4
Travels light, moves quickly and leaves very little in its wake.

Disney's Tarzan is not only the summer's most thrilling mainstream movie so far, it's also the best animated feature the studio has put out since The Lion King.
Tarzan is the cinematic equivalent of a Cajun McChicken sandwich - it's a little bit bold, a little bit spicy, and a whole lot of McMovie.
Something deep within the Tarzan myth speaks to us, and Disney's new animated Tarzan captures it.
