The Little Mermaid is a movie about a mermaid who falls in love with a human so she sets out to marry this human and finds struggles along the way.
Positives- The whole movie is basically perfectly made, and honestly this is one of the best Disney films of all time. The characters are funny and enjoyable, while not giving off terrible vibes like other Disney films. The characters all seem to have a certain side to them that you can love, and truly care for. The story is original, and is presented in a way that will have the audience excited, and hoping for more. You get more than what you expect from this movie, and you are given a message that can sit in your mind. The cinematography is beautiful and it truly feels like less animated, and more realistic, they use shots that have purpose, to capture emotion in different ways, or angles. The colors usually match the tone of what is happening during the movie, which gives the movie a nice flavor to taste, as you watch the movie. It’s not long or short, it paces itself well so that you don’t feel bored af any certain moment. The music is classic, and some of the most recognizable out of any movie, and it gives you good vibes when you listen to it. The use of dialogue is well made, and it is very natural, and they use it in different ways, to grasp emotion.
Negatives- Sometimes the characters made poor choices, and you although it’s a kids movie it does get annoying, like how the prince switches from liking Ariel, to marrying some random chick like the next day, which was actually slightly annoying. The villain feels sloppy, and her motives feel bland, she wants to rule the ocean, and make the mermaids here slave. So the way she is portrayed, she doesn’t feel very evil, and her motive seems poor. The final battle between Ursula and Ariel, feels anticlimactic, and it was like it took no effort to beat her. Poseidon as a character also feels bland, and although he is a dad who cares, he doesn’t have a background to come from. You wish he would have more screen time. Overall though The Little Mermaid should satisfy fans of Disney and is a really fun children’s film.
