The Lion King (out Jul 17) offers cute, life-like characters but the film lacks heart and passion. It’s as if we’re watching the same movie from 1994 and the filmmakers have been too scared to make any huge creative choices. Seth Rogen (as the warthog) and Billy Eichner (as they meerkat) win laughs but it all feels very stale and tired. Grade: C+.
