Animated adventure

Donna Murphy: the old crone Mother Gothel
Mandy Moore: beautiful 17-year-old Rapunzel
Zachary Levi: the handsome rogue Flynn Rider
Ron Perlman: his comrades the Stabbington Brothers

In typical Disney fashion they’ve taken a well-known fairy tale and not only given it their own twist but they’ve made a musical out of it with lots of songs and some dancing. Not that this hampers the telling of the story but it was not something I had expected.

The CGI is right up there with the very best including lovely rendering and great facial expressions, particularly by Maximus, one of the king’s horses, who steals the show every time he appears on screen. There are more than a few chuckles and things move along at a pretty good clip. All in all, a very entertaining outing.

for brief mild violence.
