The first time I watched "Lion King" still on VHS, from me still left the magazine and again with a very horrible voice acting. Remembering this cartoon, get a lot of positive emotions, positive and only a modicum of sadness that but not important.

The tears flowed freely. They started at the moment when he killed Simba's father, and then lasted almost the entire movie (stopping only those moments where merry Timon and Pumbaa diluted the atmosphere). Mom with dad even thought to stop me to watch "the lion King", I'm not just crying, I cried bitterly! They were powerless. I watched the cartoon almost every week, always crying, but didn't stop to watch. I love this cartoon with all my heart. Then came a soft toy — heroes of "the lion King", coloring books, notebooks, jigsaw puzzles and albums labels — and it my favorite cartoon. Even now, on the questions of others, what is my favorite cartoon, I answered confidently, — "the lion King"!

The cartoon is useful for child. He teaches you to enjoy nature, to live in world harmony it teaches kindness and devotion. gives a first idea about the friendship love, there too much evil and violence, it shows just enough to demonstrate the importance of good and not anymore. This family cartoon that unites generations.

Thanks to Disney, 2 the award "Oscar", 3 awards "Golden globe", three awards "Grammy", "the lion King" has collected in hire a record amount for traditional animation. It all about respects.

A very uneven film. The plot in which is clearly seen "hamlet", trying to bear in his smart thoughts about determination own place in the life but filed too simple, with a clear expectation for children. Although, if you chose a children's audience, would have and to reduce the degree of tragedy.

For example, remember one of the most epic and tragic scenes of the film — the death of Mufasa. Removed dynamic, spectacular and the atmosphere is elegant, but is designed expressly for the audience was older. However, until it after, nothing like this is seen. Appear simple-minded characters, on the scene is clearly a children's humor (the only decent joke "the bubbles with a burning gas"), and epic scenes served quickly and not so atmospheric as the above episode.

If you watch this movie in childhood, it can leave a very deep impression. The picture is as emotional, so and naive. Open soul of the child will take a simple morality and laugh the rustic humor and characters. However, for the older audience the film will be difficult to distinguish from under the title "for kids". From Disney is working with more strong drama and music, "the lion King" on the background looks like a simplified version of the long-established scheme.

The lion king (The Lion King) — long have not just a cartoon, and classics of world cinema. The film won two Academy awards for soundtrack a song performed in the cartoon.

In the cartoon we are talking about the king of all animals — the lion Mufasa. He courageous, strong, wise, one word a true lion. In alternative — his brother — a Scar that is asleep and sees possess the Pride Lands. Have Mufasa a son — Simba. He wants to be the same as father. But a Scar wants to prevent the young king.

But fortunately, on the way Simba meet real friends and true love. And they will be able to defeat Scar, to restore the Mountain of the ancestors.

The picture shows us huge range of human relationships. And the betrayal of Mufasa by Scar and friendship Timon, Pumbaa and Simba love Nala and Simba. In General, the picture is a good source of morality, which did not a burden.

The film very organically and drama. First you laugh aside, exactly six seconds you ready to burst into tears because of the injustice of life and insults. This is considered one of the best musicals of all time.

I liked this film. He keeps the audience with the start to the end. You are truly worried about each character. Stunningly recreated landscapes of Africa. Songs in a performed by Elton John perfectly complement the picture.

Separately want to mention Pumba and Timon. Their jokes were great, they cleared the atmosphere, was always to place. This one of my favorite characters. In principle, this cartoon each character has its own distinctive feature, its character. It can not to attract, from this, the movie becomes more personal and interesting.

The film is compared to another cartoon — "Land beginning of time." I must say that I do not like this cartoon. He is too naive, compared to him "the lion King" more believable and generally wins the comparison of many other items.

In General, the film is definitely worth a look.
