Well, this is the first Disney animated film that I just didn't like that much. It looks fantastic and has an adequate voice cast, but the music is uninspiring and the direction and screenplay are just pedestrian. Still, it plays out as a superior film codisidering its pedigree and status as an animated Disney Princess film. The problem is is that I'm not the target audience of young girls. In fact, I don't even know any.

About as good as I thought it would be, the beginning was gawd aweful, the rest was pretty OK. Only one good song, I can tell why they didn't have any music in the trailer. It's gimmicky like the Shrek movies after 2. But it did look quite well.

Tangled may be a straightforward romantic adventure, but it is filled with impressive visuals and enjoyable music.

A Fairy tale twisted, or just Tangled?
Disney's foray into this fairy tale leaves one word when it comes to the art- beautiful. The attention to the minute details amaze those even inside the world of computer animation. The character development must leave those who prefer other Disney movies (I'm lookin' at you Frozen fans), admitting its superiority. The fact that you want Rapunzel to flourish and grow, and that she does, and as you ache when you find out secrets from the hiding behind the disarming charm, oozing from Flynn and the hatefulness and the greed of those who use others for their own desires.
It's no secret that Rapunzel is a classic fairy tale written by the Brothers Grimm; a young girl is kept captive in a tower for a greedy witch, Mother Gothel. While the film isn't 100% accurate in it's portrayal of the fairytale, Tangled finds a way to make the sweet moments and fun story line exciting and fresh. Starting with a narrative, voiced by character Flynn Ryder (Chuck's Zachary Levi), as he gives an account as to how he's coming around to telling the story. Rapunzel, (Mandy Moore's first voice over role) is kidnapped as a baby by Mother Gothel (Broadway's Donna Murphy) to ensure that she lives forever youthful due to the magic within Rapunzel's astonishingly long blonde locks. As Rapunzel grows and learns more about the world from her tiny window, opportunity smashes into her life when Flynn Ryder shows up and is manipulated into taking her on her very first adventure outside; leading to learning how to listen to your guts as you make your way in a brave new world, breaking free from isolation, and in classic Disney fashion, finding true love along the way.
The character that Rapunzel garners throughout the movie has it's crowning moment when Rapunzel realizes that all the evil in the world she was so afraid of came from the hands of her mother figure. The emotion that the artists captured across her face as the horrifying realization hails back to the animation of the parents, who have no spoken lines throughout the movie, and the courage Rapunzel has when she goes to confront Mother Gothel is the triumphant moment we have all been longing for: standing up for herself against someone who was trusted and love yet who was damaging.
The growth from Flynn was a sweet addition to the film, showcasing that people, when given the chance, can be brave, make difficult choices, learn who to trust. The musical numbers throughout the film also portray the growth that all the characters have throughout the film.
Who doesn't want to wish for such a fun and exciting portrayal of the classic by Brothers Grimm?

Tangled's not Disney's better film, and it shows mistakes and some cliched situations, but its great animation and entertainning story-telling help it to be better and unforgettable.

Although Tangled music scenes are a bit annoying, not in the movie is not much to complain about. Tangled is also basic to Disney. With all the princesses, the bad guys, love stories and make jolly animal figures from controlling Grenon Nathan and Byron Howard's computer animation safe and familiar Disney movie. Tangled is mostly attracted a truly hilarious and fun in spite of the sad towards the end of the episode. Dumb but cheerful and exhilaration of a chameleon and a horse driven by the film well.
Tree computer animation is good, and in addition to a variety of landscapes for human animation is gone evidently well.
The plot is a magical, which exudes a cone full of the spirit of the traditional Disney fairy tale princess, but a little more lighthearted.

Much, much better than Frozen. It didn't need to be mentioned that it's "far from Disney's greatest film" while Frozen's consensus says it "adds another worthy entry to the Disney canon". Seriously? Have these critics even watched both movies or are they just going off what the publicity of the movies told them to think?

'Tangled' is a fun family adventure full of great humor, and even though the songs aren't up to par with those in the Disney Renaissance era, the film evokes just enough magic and romance to make the tale a delight.

Favorite movie alongside Shrek and Finding Nemo! Tangled is very underrated and MUCH better than Frozen. Although the songs aren't as memorable as other Disney classics, I can watch it over and over and never gets old.

Great movie for kids and adults. Very funny. Felt kinda like older Disney movies with the singing and story content. I've seen this dozens of times with family and I still haven't got sick of it. That's a testament to how good it is.

Underrated as hell. Beautiful animation, catchy songs, and a strong princess.

Seems infinitely more traditional than Frozen but is very lush and engaging with a very taut climax.

I don't know what it is about these CGI Disney animated features, but they tend to seem rather generic when compared to classical 2-D works. "Tangled" is charming enough, but it's nowhere near incredible.

Tangled is amateur work when compared against it's goliath predecessors, considering it's own goliath $240 million budget. This goes to show no amount of money can buy an animation truly emotive with worthwhile songs and character complexes. Tangled relies more on comedy, and slap-stick, than on story development and intrigue. It uses a timeless formula and executes it to sub-standards. Tangled is a colourful mess, riddled with on-the-nose scenes that have the depth of a placid pool.

One of the best Disney films since the 90's. A gorgeous display of 3D animation with charismatic characters, catchy songs and beautiful art direction. One of my very favorite princess films.

Tangled is one of those Disney films that won the achievement of Disney's first ever CGI-animated musical fairytale film at its best. This movie is just amazing. With a great story (despite being a little too similar to The Hunchback of Notre Dame), incredible humour, amazing animation, fun, loveable and interesting characters and an enjoyable musical soundtrack by the comeback of Alan Menken. (Even though it's forgettable compared to Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast). If you really liked The Princess and the Frog, you will love this. You've done it again Disney. Keep up the good work.

Disney presents its 50th animation film, Tangled. Unlike the other animation films, Tangled is not hand drawn and it is computer animated. The story for this film is based on the tale of Rapunzel and as the legend goes, Rapunzel is locked up in a tower and she uses her long hair to let people climb in and out of the tower. In this rendition of the tale, Rapunzel's hair is magical and can heal people as well as keep them eternally youthful. Her hair is 70 feet long, as she is unable to cut it, or it will lose her power. She uses her hair to bring in and out of the tower Mother Gothel (Donna Murphy), who is actually a woman who kidnapped Rapunzel at birth so she could use her power for her own gain.

Mother Gothel keeps Rapunzel in the tower and warns her of all the outside dangers in the world to keep Rapunzel isolated from the world. Rapunzel like Princess Aurora many years before grows weary of being locked up and in the dark and becomes more and curious about the outside world. She questions these lanterns that light up the sky every year on her birthday, and wonders their purpose. Her mother insists on keeping this from her knowing this will lead to Rapunzel's discovery of her abduction. On the day before her 18th birthday however, a young thief known as Flynn Rider shows up in her tower in attempt to hide from being captured. He agrees to show her the source of the lanterns as long as she give him back a tiara of his, which he himself stole from the castle. The two set off on an adventure, and come across double crossing bandits, soldiers, and a super cop horse all as she is pursued by her wicked mother kidnapper.

The animation of this film is stunning as this was Disney's most expensive animation piece at the time, costing 260 million. It was good to see that Disney did not abandon its animation attempts especially after the success of Pixar. The story for Tangled is somewhat ordinary, but Rapunzel herself (Mandy Moore) is a charming character that keeps the movie interesting. Flynn Rider (Zachary Levi) does his best to handle the comedic element of the film and does so to varying levels of success. There are a few times where the story seems a little disjointed, and the Tangled sorely lacks a good side kick character that many other Disney films have. Rapunzel owns a chameleon that travels with her closely, but he does not speak, nor does he add much value to the plot. The story really focuses in on the 3 main characters and does not leave much room for interest or development of anyone else. In the grand scheme of things these 3 can carry the picture, but the film does not have a sense of grandeur that other Disney films are able to conject.

Alan Menken provides his musical talents again and the song I see the Light was nominated for an Oscar. This was in a nice scene that has Rapunzel and Flynn singing on a boat illuminated by the lanterns, and was clearly the Aladdin equivalent of "A Whole New World" for this picture. The rest of the songs do not particularly stand out, nor do any of the orchestral works. Overall Tangled is a welcome addition to Disney's animation library. Tangled will likely appease the female audience more, with a princess heroine. The film will not likely have a lasting impact as some of its masterpieces (Lion King, Aladdin, or Beauty and the Beast), but it is certainly a vast improvement over some of it's the more recent films produced by Disney.
