An Abomination
15 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

This film is horrific. Historically wrong, especially regarding religious agenda, and, as other reviewers have said, it does not make sense why a biopic of one of the most genius humans on the planet was this terribly made. Acting was dreadful, cinematography was dreadful, there are no saving graces.

There are some terrible movies that are so ridiculous, or a particular actor saves it and it becomes a cult classic. This is not one of them. It is offensive to anyone who has studied Disney history and admires the man behind the mouse.

To be specific rather then just opinionated the film does not address the problems Walt had with his father, does not convey the severity of his finances and money management, and throwing out quotes from Disney movies to make "inspirational" statements gets old incredibly quickly.
