Old fashioned Disney movie about a long haired princess called Rapunzel who spent her entire life in a tower after she was kidnapped from her parents when she was just a baby. The woman who kidnapped her is using Rapunzel’s magical hair for her own benefit: she wants to stay forever young! But as soon as she turns 18, Rapunzel decides that it’s time to discover the outside world. With the help of a handsome bandit who was passing by, she sets out on the most exciting and unforgettable adventure of her life. I don’t usually ask a lot from an animated feature; as long as it’s funny, entertaining and straighforward, I’m instantly hooked. I’ve always been a fan of Disney’s movies (I grew up watching “Aladdin”, “Beauty And The Beast” and “Dumbo”), so I knew exactly what to expect from “Tangled” and I’m glad to say that I was entirely satisfied. It’s a charming movie with stunning locations, and even if the target audience is mostly young kids, I’m sure it will win the hearts of adults aswell. Yes the formula is pretty old (aferall how many times have you heard the story of the princess who fell in love with a handsome man and lived happily ever after?), but when the formula works like magic everytime, it’s hard to complain.
