Me and My kids and I LOVED the original Lion King and we always watch online – but this new version was a huge let-down. Despite the star power that Disney enlisted, the music was flat and joyless. Dialogue was stilted and oddly emotionless. And speaking of emotion, the cartoon characters of the original Look King showed INFINITELY more expression than the new animation allowed. (Honestly, my house cat shows more emotion.) I don’t understand the rave audience reviews, unless they’ve just never seen the original full movie in HD. I can’t remember a Disney film that I’ve disliked more.
So many of the little humorous exchanges with the hyenas and with rafiki were taken away. Part of the magic of the lion king was in the humor which was lost in this film. They did try and compensate a little, but I feel the laughter was just not there. Whoopi goldberg and cheech Marin were comedians, why was this not explored more to bring new comedians in for the hyenas roles?
Without the booming voices and humour, you realize that the movie is lacklustre to free download where you are left with the story and the cinematography only. The cinematography is fantastic and I know this is a super hard movie to live up to the original, but I feel a lot of the magic that make this movie “a whole package” was just not there.
