Tangled Review

Rating: 1,000,000,000 1/2 Stars

I loved this movie so much! Like, so much. The animation, the comedy, the characters, the songs, the voices, the plot, you name it! The animation was wonderful! It had the perfect amount of comedy. Even in the hardest times, there is some comic relief. The characters fit in so well. Period. The songs are so catchy and they tell the story as they sing them. The voices fit each and every character on the spot. They couldn't have chose anyone better to voice over Flynn. The plot was very good. That's all I can say without spoiling anything. ;) But overall it was a really good movie. I recommend it to everyone.

Spoiler ALERT

Rapunzel is just like you and me (set aside the fact that she has 70 feet of hair). She sings, she bakes, she paints, and she falls in love. The voiceover for her was PERFECT. I love it when she sings, her voice is beautiful. I love the way she acts in the movie, she is very confident. Her feelings for Flynn (Eugine) are obviously very strong. Although at first, she's suspicious about him, but I love how it ends.
Oh goodness. He is a self-centered, theif, literally. But boy, is he funny. He can be funny even when he's being mean. And how much he loves Rapunzel, especially in the end is so sweet. I did not see it coming when (spoiler sentence) he cut off Rapunzel's hair. I certainly wouldn't have thought of that right before I died. I dont have much to say about him, except that being a theif, he can certainly be hilarious!

Mother Gothel
Even though you aren't attached to the character ever in this movie. Somehow they got me to love the character when I needed to, and not care when she gets hurt or dies. In the beginning she HAS to be my favorite character. She is so funny, sarcastic, and loving (at least good at pretending to love). Her main song, "Mother Knows Best" is probably my favorite song because everything that she says IS out there, except not as scary as she makes it sound. Just like Flynn, she is still funny even in the hardest times. They chose the perfect actor for her. Couldn't have made her better.
Don't have much to say about him. Probably because he's a chameleon. But what I do have to say is that he has a lot of personality for a chameleon, and I would love to have him as my friend.

I really liked this movie.

*Spoiler alert*

When my sister and I watched the movie we recognized something we saw in Harry Potter. Rapunzel's tears healed Flynn Rider/ Eugene. That was the same as in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets where Fawkes, the phoenix, healed Harry with his tears.
