- Shocking flat. Lacked any emotion. Completely overhyped 7/29/2019 12:00:00 AM by rupalikespie
The CGI in this is incredible, it's mesmerising and beautiful. But that's all it is, is beautiful cgi, they've completely lost sight of the story, the emotion and the magic. It's so boring, the focus has been so much on keeping this photo realistic, that everything else has been forgotten about. They've cut numbers, when Mufasa dies you feel nothing because the characters aren't showing any emotion and none of the acting is convincing. Really badly cast. The fur is so intricate, especially the attention to detail when it get's wet, it's very very telling where the money has gone from the get go.
- Ruined the music 7/29/2019 12:00:00 AM by gries38
Felt like a corporate movie and they know people will go see it on name alone, and they ruined the music. Not sure they realized the music was the best part. Songs felt like when an artist oversings the national anthem. The songs were great originally and felt like they were trying too hard.

So anyone else notice it has a high score of 7.5 on here yet everyone's ratings don't really stretch beyond 3?? Horrendous rendition of a childhood classic. I mean at lest our beloved Mufasa was the same or else there probs wouldn't be any hope of recover from such a flop of voice acting prowess demonstrated in the movie.
- So poor 7/23/2019 12:00:00 AM by jpduignan
No heart, no laughs, I expected it to be good after the jungle book but it's just a terrible cover version without any feeling. Left the cinema after an hour.
- Just watch the original 8/7/2019 12:00:00 AM by DoubleG1915
It takes everything good about the original and takes a dump on it. Same storyline but the presentation just ruins the movie. Good cg for sure but no emotion, heart or anything good about the animated movie.If you wanna watch lion king, watch the original.
