I thought this was beautifully done - the animals are amazing and there was just the right amount of music and humor. There were a couple of places that would be scary for young children. I felt that it followed the plot of the play and the Disney animated version, both of which I have seen. I loved it!
It was made pretty badly. Animals are too life like. Which actually makes them very unexpressive. Disney should have thought about that. Some really bad voice acting. Particularly young simba. And scenes don't take the time to let the emotion actually happen, they just sort of rush through them. It was pretty bad.
My daughter and I went to see this movie. We used to watch the animated movie a lot when she was little, she is 21 now. We both thoroughly enjoyed it.
Awfully made movie. So bad it would take pages to bring out all the bad areas .
Beautiful and Amazing movie! Stop comparing to original! It would be a waste of money if it was exactly 100% to original. Be open minded! It is just another way of telling this amazing story. So many underlining messages about life if you pay attention.. Soundtrack music is awesome as well.
Delightful in every way. GuruBob says 96/100
Not for young children as it is scary. Seth Rogen does a terrific job. Beyounce needs to stick to singing. Her speaking voice is annoying.
Loved the digitalized version-very real- almost 3 D like. The original animated Verizon was cute & funny-great for young kids. The new version might be a bit scary for young children (under 8-9 years). The new version was very life like. Great movie-better on theater screen then DVD at home
Don't waste you money on a copy cat attempted movie remake with attempts to make realistic animals speak. Not only was this a bad idea but it looked so stupid especially when the lips moving did not match the voiced sound. The movie would have been much better if it was animated like the original and started where the original left off. But it's too late for that now as this movie has ruined the chance of that ever happening.
I loved it :)
It was an amazing movie the scenery was amazing. Went with my aunt who has never seen this movie not even the original
I loved it AWSOME movie😊😊😊
Thank you Disney, you made another good movie! we and our 5 grandchildren and 2 children, accompanied us to see it and we all loved it! a good presentation of good and evil and making our choice will be our demise. it's a good lesson of right and wrong, little of which our world discerns today.
SUPPPERR BORING good same old story line not a Disney lover
This movie did not dissapoint!! Loved it!
I thought it was a great remake of the original. Most excellent
Very boring... The original cast from the 90s was a billion time better also the animation. Thanks but no Thanks for this one...
Fantastic! Enjoyed everything about it. Still love the animated version too.
What a beautiful movie!! and i'am going back today with my grandson! and for the idiot who put 1 star you really dont know nothing about movies!!!!
Great Movie !!!
As great as the animated version. Great soundtrack & message. . The 1 * idiots, you can't ever please. Why don't they go eat an alligator or something. rh
It was wonderful, exceeded expectations
Easy five stars
This movie was as great a sthe cartoon version minus 2 songs. The combination of live animals and animatronics was great! The grandkids loved every minute and so did we! Would go see it again in a heartbeat!
Fantastic 5 stars
This remake was very disappointing. Trying to make the animals look real and as if they were talking was a bad mistake.
I loved this movie me my daughter and my grandsons went and watched it and it was awrsome
Awesome movie and loved it and seen it 2 times
Was hesitant at first to see the movie as I figured just a kids show. I was wrong, great movie for all ages. The ending was predictable but none the less fantastic show that kept you wanting to not take your eye off the screen.
The animals and background was wonderful. In order to get the animals like they were, it had to take a long time to photograph them in different positions. It was very uplifting and I really enjoyed it.
I liked it, but it will never be as good as the original cartoon. More colorful could've been added, however, the small kids at the theater didn't seem to mind. And as most who already seen it, there was the 15 second or so part that should not have been put in the movie. James Earl Jones' voice is just as remarkable as it is in anything he's in.
Better than the original! Granddaughters loved it!
Not as good as the first one which was animated. Was disappointed. The first one you could believe the animals where talking because it was animated. This one seemed unreal because it was made to looked like the real animals were talking which made the movie seem unreal (fake).
Go watch it now stop reading and watch
Amazing it such a good movie I really enjoyed it
No where near as good as rhe original which was animated. This movie should have been animated as well and should have picked up where the original left off instead of trying to copy the same movie.
I did not like it as much as the cartoon one. It needs more color and the lions look emeciated/too skinny. No expression. The hyanas were worse. The cartoon one was so much funny. Disney missed
