A week ago the picture “the lion King” was launched in the Russian cinemas – the controversy surrounding the tape continues.
A new adaptation of the legendary masterpiece of animation Disney “the lion King” only over the past weekend was the undisputed leader of the world, earning nearly $ 600 million. Collecting in the Russian hire is also very impressive – the amount is closer to one billion rubles, and the result of the launch day was the best for Disney movies.
“The lion king” – the case when the film actually needs no introduction. Original cartoon 1994, it seems, saw everything, and who have not seen, to describe the plot without revealing key moments of history just will not work. The main character of the lion cub Simba and his friends are waiting for an incredible adventure and severe trials, betrayal and of course love, friendship and the endless expanse of Savannah. Nature in the film looks amazing – it’s one of the main advantages of the picture before animation. A source of inspiration for the creators of the new version was the mysterious and majestic landscapes of Kenya.
For many people “the lion King” is a very special and, perhaps, the most emotional memories of all animated films, seen them in childhood. Therefore, to a new incarnation of the beloved story was the centre of attention. Some fans of the movie and even was initially against the new version, believing that better this story impossible to do, it can only spoil. Not to say that their fears were entirely unfounded.
Yes, Director Jon Favreau as carefully and tenderly treated him to a trusted material and created, from a visual point of view, an absolute masterpiece – the picture is simply mesmerizing, and all the animals look absolutely alive and real, and absolutely can not believe that they are the fruit of the work of computer graphics. Animals are so magnificent, that it seems, is only to lend a hand and you can pet their soft fur. Time does not stand still, in a movie rapidly and new technologies emerge, and sooner or later, “the Lion King” would still be remade. But the thing that lost the story to emotions. Those expressive eyes and faces, stiffening in horror or to convey a whole range of emotions from amazement in the new “lion” virtually non-existent. In the most heart pinching moments of the paintings that emotion is what made kids and even adults do not just shed a tear and just cry from what is happening on the screen or sincerely rejoice as your favorite characters.
However, the lack of emotion new “the lion King” draws in some sort of plus – but here everything is shown how it can be in the real nature, can behave like real animals, not cartoon characters. The whole story seems to be alive and it is easy to believe that all this really can happen anywhere on the African expanse (of course, except for the fact that animals can talk). The film is virtually identical to the cartoon, but there are quite a few new scenes and some scenes were slightly altered. In General, we can assume that a remake was possible, but to overshadow the original, he still failed. However, “the lion King” is one of the best “adaptations” of Disney their own paintings for the last time, for example, published last may, “Aladdin” inferior “lion” on many points. If you still doubt, go to see “the Lion King” or not, the answer is – Yes. At least in order to make up their own opinion, and, of course, to see a real revolution in the visual effects, the picture is really unique and is something quite unprecedented.
