SpotboyE Editor Vickey Lalwani rated the film with 2 stars and wrote, “As the film rolls out, you feel for neither the cub Simba nor his Dad Mufasa, and not even against Scar (former heir to the throne) who plots the duo's downfall with hyenas. Even the way that Simba figures out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his, is depicted very weakly. Director saab Jon Favreau seems to have come to a belief that only technology can make a film. Absolute lack of emotions. But why? Reflective of today's times?”
“You also can't avoid getting a feeling that Favreau is out
to make this into more of a musical as the plot begins to dilute with the
passing of each scene but the songs seemed to have been picturised with lots of
passion. The only scene that stays in mind is Mufasa falling off from a height.
The one-on-one combat between Simba and Scar in the climax does not make
adrenaline flow, imagine!,” he further wrote.
