I feel old doing this review
I really enjoyed this movie, when the first one came out, I was 13 and I thought I was over all the Disney films, turns out I was wrong haha, the first one was silly, cheesy, but really fun, great memorable and catchy songs, outstanding Kenny Ortega choreography, character design, and laughable CGI, not a cinematic masterpiece, but still an enjoyable film.
I liked the sequel even more than the first one, which came out a month before I turned 16, and again, I wasn't expecting it, but the style was just so well thought and made, I loved the new villain trio, (China Anne McClain's return touched my A.N.T farm 5th grade heart) the only thing I really found cheesy was the 3D printer idea and the talking dog.
And now the real review of this movie lol, a month before my 18th birthday, and I just think this is the best one out of the 3, it was an incredible musical, the pace was nicely distributed, and the references to the classic movies were great, even ironic! I loved how Audrey used Malleficent's scepter, it was just so freaking hilarious and ironic, and how she put everyone to sleep, I just really liked her as this unstable funny villain, she had a great evil laugh and shrieks; and wasn't really evil, just desperate. I absolutely loved Hades as a character, his style was just so rock n' roll-ish, with all his sarcasm, and dynamic with Mal (especially their duo song, which was my favorite one, amazing character performances and dynamic), I found Uma's and Mal's frenemy state really funny, with Evie trying to keep things at bay, and I found absolutely hilarious Evie's One Kiss song, so dramatic and silly.
The battles in the movie were also really musical and had their "Disney epicness" (which means they were silly but also exciting) and I laughed out loud when they made those suits of armor dance.
In conclusion (because I just noticed this review is way too long, I thank you if you read all of that) this movie had a lot of stylistic and cheesy moments I enjoyed and laughed at with my 11 year old sister a friday night, and I can say this was a really good finale for the movie series.
On the downside I can say the movie was a bit more sexualized than the previous ones, the girls in the movie were dressed a bit skimpier (those mini dresses, and Mal's tight leather pants, with a lot of behind-her-back shots) and it had a lot more flirting (specially Harry, who is a heartthrob), but I think the film was pretty ok for middle school tweens, even thought they are in their "ew Disney" phase. I also felt that the film was a bit political, in a subtle way that younger kids won't really see, but I did notice
