Best Disney Movie I've Ever Seen, Highly Recommended
Tangled remains my favorite movie, even today. It's loveable characters and simply marvelous storyline kept me watching until the end, and when I finished, I wanted to go back and watch it again. It has a monumental combination of adventure, sorrow, romance, and inspiration that all leads to a wonderful end. Please read my review.
I was surprised how many reviews have downed on this movie because of the "violence" and "pure evil." I understand how this could scare little kids (sometimes, considering they usually don't pay attention until the villain loses), but all of the young children I know loved this movie, except for a few small boys- and unless you or your child has been through a traumatizing experience with kidnapping or something relating to it in the past, there is no reason not to see this movie.
The "violence" discussed is during one part during the entire movie- the ENTIRE movie, and isn't even that bad. Someone is stabbed. It doesn't show it. It shows nothing except a small red spot when he pulls back his jacket. This one part plays for about three seconds. A few people mentioned that Mother Gothel had a violent and cruel death. No, her death was not violent at all, nor inappropriate in any way. About the evil of Mother Gothel, though- like I said, children barely pay attention to things like that unless they have had something like that happen to them in the past. There is NO reason besides peoples' pasts to be scared of this movie.
Additionally, all of that evil and sadness leads up to one of the happiest and filling endings I've ever seen! That- the end, where everything reaches its stand, is where kids pay attention. Violence is not an issue unless your child is very easily frightened.
Now, for the people who complained about "sexual behavior," you have to be kidding me. Kissing? Kissing is not sexual behavior. Kissing happens in almost every princess movie there has ever been. For the people who complained about drugs, I never saw a drug in that video. I never heard the word "beer." Flynn and Rapunzel went to a restaurant. I bet 0% of kids asked their parents, "Daddy, Mommy, what were the guys in the restaurant drinking?" It could have been cola for all we know.
About role models, everyone was fine. I doubt any of your kids wanted to be like Mother Gothel when they grew up. Rapunzel had a very nice character, I see no reason to complain for her. If you were kept in a tower for all of your life, you'd probably want to get out to, agreed? Yes. One person mentioned that anyone can rebel, and that Cinderella was a good role model while Rapunzel was bad. Alright, well, the thing with that is that NO ONE is like Cinderella. Cinderella is the perfect princess, and yes, she's a good role model, but its just not possible for a kid to become as good as that. I'm not saying that Rapunzel was generally a GOOD role model, but she wasn't that bad of one either. You couldn't possibly complain about any other role models kids might take after, considering that Flynn changed his ways and took after a better dream, and the rest of the characters were hilarious.
The language in this movie is nothing to worry about. Literally nothing, I don't think I ever heard a single world as bad as "stupid." So don't worry about that one.
Graphics and music-wise, this music was also very good. "Medieval Dance" is my favorite song from the soundtrack, as it has a very happy- but then extremely inspiring and intense tune, just making me feel like I want to do something great. Same with the whole movie, it really makes you wish to live your dreams. This movie's graphics were smooth and greatly animated, along with quality character design and special effects.
This is all, thank you for reading.
