Critic Reviews

100 Movie NationRoger Moore
A moving, hilarious and stunningly-animated adventure epic. Read full review

91 Entertainment Weekly | Devan Coggan
Moana has a lot of the hallmarks of your classic Disney adventure — the goofy animal sidekicks, the feel-good messages — but its heroine is something new, a smart and fiery deviation from your standard European lovestruck princesses. Read full review

90 Variety | Peter Debruge
As princess movies go, this one broadens the studio’s horizons, and as Moana herself sings in the film, “no one knows, how far it goes.” Read full review

90 The Hollywood Reporter | Michael Rechtshaffen
Appealing equally to the eyes, ears, heart and funny bone, Moana represents contemporary Disney at its finest — a vibrantly rendered adventure that combines state-of-the-art CG animation with traditional storytelling and colorful characters, all enlivened by a terrific voice cast. Read full review

88 USA Today | Brian Truitt
The “Hamilton” creator and the island personalities of Moana make beautiful music together in this charming seafaring epic. Read full review

80 New York Daily News | Jordon Hoffman
Yes, The Rock can carry a tune and his big song-and-dance number “You’re Welcome” is a hoot. Read full review

80 Empire | Nick de Semlyen
A crowd-pleasing oceanic musical with big tunes and beguiling characters, Moana is likely to thwack a big smile on your face. And did we mention the idiotic chicken? Read full review

75 TheWrap | Alonso Duralde
Moana does what it does so well that you wish its makers had imbued it with some X factor that separates the classics from the merely beloved. Read full review

75 Indiewire | Eric Kohn
Visually dazzling and loaded with charm, the movie is also blatant in its quest for cultural sensitivity. Read full review

70 Screen International | Tim Grierson
The perfectly pleasurable Moana boasts vivid animation, a handful of catchy songs and a sweetly sunny disposition — all suitable compensation for a story which is not particularly inspired or original. Read full review

67 The Film Stage | Daniel Schindel
This is one of the better-directed CG films in the Disney canon. But next to all the solid noisy bits, Disney still demonstrates trouble in slowing down properly. Read full review

60 The Guardian| Steve Rose
Its cultural setting is fresh; its storytelling, less so. It navigates the reefs but it doesn’t discover a whole new world. Read full review
