Mona Movie Review


1.) Review by Leah Pickett on Chicago reader

[stextbox id=”info”]The narrative is a fairly predictable hero’s journey—Maui even calls her “The Chosen One”—but the movie is refreshing for its lack of a love interest; instead Moana learns how to chart her own course. Dynamic CGI and robust songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda of Hamilton further enhance the experience. [/stextbox]

2.) Review by Matthew Lickona on San Diego Reader

[stextbox id=”info”]This is Disney’s way of having its formulaic cake and eating it, too: “We know what we’re doing here, and we know that you know it, too. So please stop fretting and enjoy while the pieces fall into place.” [/stextbox]

3.) Review by Christopher Orr on The Atlantic

[stextbox id=”info”]Moana definitely resides at the Frozen end of this cinematic spectrum, a conventional story featuring just enough innovation to feel current and relying principally on its dazzling execution.[/stextbox]

4.) Rating:3.5/5. Review by Peter Travers on Rolling Stone

[stextbox id=”info”]Maui disagrees. “If you wear a dress and have an animal sidekick, you’re a princess.” He’s got a point. But Moana has a better one. She’s a girl on a mission. And heaven help the man, monster, or demigod who tries to stop her.[/stextbox]

5.) Rating: 4/5. Review by Times of India

[stextbox id=”info”]However, the movie chugs along with breathtaking animation, adorable interactions between the strong-willed girl and the hilariously self-obsessed demigod, and songs that make you shimmy involuntarily. There’s even a Mad Max: Fury Road-inspired battle scene. [/stextbox]

6.) Rating: 3/5. Review by Caitlin Moore on NDTV Movies

[stextbox id=”info”]Moana may not be The Little Mermaid or Aladdin, but the film, set among the islands of Polynesia, boasts not only cultural authenticity but also a young heroine who is steadfast and proud, even as she struggles to find her way. Moana has the appeal of a princess and the heart of a warrior. In other words, she’s less a Sleeping Beauty than a South Pacific Mulan.[/stextbox]
