Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Everyone, young and old, will find something to appreciate in this Shakespearean tale of a young lion discovering his rightful place in the world.
| Original Score: 4/5
The story line is a Joseph Campbell hero-quest so stripped down to its basics as to become dull.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A computer-animated scene featuring a stampede of wildebeest is positively breathtaking.
The Lion King, more than any of the recent wave of Disney animated features, has the resonance to stand not just as a terrific cartoon but as an emotionally pungent movie.
| Original Score: A-
The result is a step toward multiculturalism and ecological correctness, though not without a certain amount of confusion.
A crown jewel of modern Disney animation.
More so than the exuberant movie miracles that came before it, this latest animated juggernaut has the feeling of a clever, predictable product.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
A royal treat.
Some of the richest imagery the studio's animators have produced and held together.
There clearly has been a conscious effort to please adults as much as children. Happily, for those of us who generally stay far away from 'cartoons,' they have succeeded.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
It's all calculated to be wonderfully entertaining and almost every frame hits the mark.
An ingenious mixture of themes from narrative sources as ancient and varied as Hamlet, the Old Testament and The Odyssey.
Winning and gorgeous.
An impressive, almost daunting achievement.
A superbly drawn animated feature.
