TANGLED is one of the Disney's films I'd been anticipating during the fourth quarter, and I finally got to see it. But, was it good? First, the characters. The varieties are good, and the main characters are great. The horse was one of my most interesting characters to stare at the whole time. The barbarians at Little Duckling were interesting, and fun contributors to the plot. I just wished that the main villain was as center-staged as they were. She being a one-woman show was not as grand, for a Disney villain, as... per se... the witch in "Sleeping Beauty", who at least had evil minions, whereas that of the original story didn't. The downside I had was how the film was made, and the plot itself. I honestly wished that this film was hand-drawn, like "The Princess and the Frog". That film was terrific. Sometimes, hand-drawn films are a bit more beautiful than CGI ones. And speaking of art, Disney should've focused a lot more at the tower than they did. This takes us to the plot. In the original story, the plot sounds like this: The king got a flower for his pregnant wife from an enchantress... in exchange for Rapunzel, Rapunzel grows up, a prince notices Rapunzel singing... and asks to marry her, she says yes, enchantress is angry at Rapunzel for something... and cuts off her hair, lures the prince to lose his sight, the prince wanders the lands for months... and hears Rapunzel singing, her tears restores his sight, and they live happily ever after at the prince's kingdom. So, yeah, the plot Disney showed us was completely altered. I really anticipated the last parts of the original story to make it into this film! And with the climax being a lil bit anti, I even wondered if it's worth killing off the enchantress to begin with. Still on the Disney adaptation, the action scenes were flawlessly slick, especially those with the horse, the romantic boat scene at the kingdom was nice, and there were a lot of funny moments too. It’s not all that, but it's a good film.
