  • 5 stars The graphics were incredible! The story line, as it was in the original movie. Who gets tired of James Earl Jones! He is awesome! I loved the movie and so did my daughter and my teenage grandson and 4 year old granddaughter. Rated PG. Simply amazing!
  • 1 stars No imagination or creativity. A boring cash grab. From someone who grew up on the original.
  • 1 stars Not worth seeing. Go see Toy Story instead.
  • 4 stars Stunning CGI, so realistically breathtaking. I advise you prepare yourself NOT to make comparisons to original, otherwise may be disappointed somewhat. This is a more 'real' film that impresses yet elicits similar emotions like the first. Glad James Earl Jones did Mufasa again and wish Jeremy Irons had done Scar. I did not give 5 stars because I prefer the singers and arrangement of some songs in the original. People clapped at the end, so enjoy.
  • 1 stars Yet another remake that follows an original film so slavishly, yet is "cold around the heart". This somehow adds a half hour of running time, but nothing else. The animation of the lip movement when the animals talk just seems creepy. I was dragged to this. This is hollow; and this is not a creative enterprise...this is just recycling for profit.
  • 5 stars Go see it, don't let the bad reviews spoil the experience you could be having! - One of Disney's best, as they have perfected CGI with this one because at one-time hair whether it was on humans or an animal didn't always look real enough & getting animal movements was also a very difficult thing to produce because each one moves in there own way. So it seems those working on this film have done their homework & studied the movements & each hair of every animal on the screen & there are a lot of them showing up at one time. So along with a story-line that keeps you watching the screen, this is one movie that is very well done & seems so real at times it just may scare the younger children, not like the 1st Lion King! Just to show you how much people were affected by the film, many broke out in clapping when the movie ended which even though I love it I would only do at a live stage show!
  • 1 stars not my favorite. Saw original when it first came out at movies and this remake does not come close. The voices were all wrong and skipped out on some of my favorite scenes. I also thought the songs sounded awful. I was disappointed.
  • 5 stars Awesome!! A lot of good can be learned from that movie!! Kudos to the writers, directors and all who were involved!!
  • 3 stars The animation was stunning, the rest lacked emotion and creativity. I was quite disappointed with the casting and even James Earl Jones reprisal lacked the emotional presence the original had.
  • 2 stars Great for the kiddos, Disney fanatics, and anyone who has not seen any previous version. Otherwise, while acceptable entertainment, the musical score was flat, the computer generated scenery of the kingdom generated no awe (or ah's) and with the exception of the evil "Scar" and the warthog, the "acting" as uninspiring and unimaginative beyond the script read, It wasn't awful.
