I saw myself falling in love with cartoon characters or Japanese drama actors a lot of times. The latest would be from my last post – Seiji from Whispers of the Heart and is closely followed by Flynn Rider, yes, the handsome thief in the movie Tangled or Rapunzel in layman’s terms.
I mean look at how perfectly they made the lips, nose and eyes. lol. I can’t make out what his nationality is but he surely looks handsome. As mentioned, Flynn (voiced by Zachary Levi) is a thief in the story and was running away from the kingdom guards and from his two former accomplices for taking their loot to himself. He hid himself in the tower where Rapunzel (voiced by Mandy Moore) is kept and their adventure begins there.
Flynn would have a change of heart in the course of the story and his life would also be assumed to have a different ending after being tangled with Rapunzel’s own. 🙂 – Literally bringing to life the cliche, it takes two to be tangled…err to tango.
I really enjoy this film that I think I’ve been watching it almost everyday. 😀 And because Flynn was voiced by Zachary Levi – I just can’t help it. I love the guy. He was too nerdy in Alvin and the Chipmunks and Chuck but he was awesome in this film even if it’s just the voice and who knew he could sing? I love this movie’s theme song “I See the Light” sang by Mandy and Zachary, the song was nominated at the Oscars and performed by the two, I was quite disappointed though that it lost over Toy Story’s. 🙁
All in all, a magical story right from the Grimm Brothers’ book – full of action and from the female character too! Full of comedy, drama and romance…I just don’t like the hint of rebelliousness I picked off from Rapunzel triggered by the role of Gothel, her stepmom. If a mom is like her, kids would surely rebel and the “mothers know best” belief will be laughed upon. 🙁
Great animation, truly fit for a 50th Disney installment – can’t wait for a follow-up film. 😉
