Reviewers drag Beyonce's voice acting in The Lion King

simbiosis

“It just felt like she was reading her lines” Alissa Wilkinson, VOX

“She messed up the film” Khanyi Mbau, All4Women

“Beyoncé's disembodied voice-over was just hovering over footage” Matt Patches, Polygon

 “All I could picture was Beyoncé in a recording booth, reading lines” Bilge Ebiri, Vulture

 

I was really hoping, they wouldn't mess up this one, because I loved The Lion King as a kid, but reviews in general have been terrible. It currently has a 57 on Metacritic. Not sure I will watch it.

An example of the terrible voice acting below:

I don’t know if her voice is too recognizable or if she just can’t voice act but she isn’t convincing

I think the voice acting looks bad because of how the lions move their mouths.

 Lupita Nyong'o would have been a great choice for Nala though.

I watched the movie and unfortunately everything that’s said in this thread is true IMO.. You can literally tell she’s reading lines in the studio and it doesn’t sound “natural” at all... I mean ofc she is reading lines and recording them in the studio but there was no emotion or acting..

Not a fair representation of what the critics are saying :awkney:

Most critics are actually criticizing all voice-overs for being unnatural and uneffective, not because it's the actors' fault but because  the lines are bad and the photorealistic visuals work against the emotive dialogue.
