The Tangled Movie Review

Updated on May 30, 2011

Tangled is a humorous spin on the age old children's story, Rapunzel. If you have never heard of the story you are either way to young, or stayed far away from children's books growing up. In Disney's futuristic remake, Rapunzel is a princess who on her 18th birthday vowed to break free from her over protective guardian to witness an annual celebration.

The movie begins with a brief narration of a King and Queen having a daughter. Not long after her birth, she became the "Lost Princess" that no one could find after 18 years.

This celebration that she desperately wanted to see was in fact for Rapunzel; although she didn't know for 17 years. Somehow she manages to be raised by a semi-evil woman who casually keeps her in captivity in an enormous tower.

But what good is any princess movie without a prince? Well, at least in this case the eventual one. Rapunzel later meets a trouble making, medieval thug (Disney-like, of course) who's initial objective in the movie was to thieve a guarded crown. The two sub-plots conveniently began to form.

Accomplishing his goal, the would be prince flees from the guards and "accidentally" runs into an unsupervised Rapunzel. This union was followed by the two getting to know each other and the evil mom trying to wedge the two apart. She was the least of his problems, however, as Rapunzel and her pet chameleon was already a handful for the young man.

If you're going to get this movie I recommend that you check it out in a HD experience. It looks brilliant on Bluray! From an audio perspective, Tangled won't really blow you away.

If you can stomach some of the dialogue being sang to you I believe you'll enjoy it. It's far from a musical, and not nearly as bad as The Princess and the Frog. Between the chameleon and a horse named Maximus, you'll definitely find the movie comical. Tangled was truly a good spin on a story time classic of almost 100 years ago.

      Very cool spin on a classic story. Going into it I was like, "Great...more animation." but my kids talked me into it. I'm glad they did. Tangled is worth owning, I think.
