Up (2009)

Film review

Blessed with the Midas touch, Pixar has had a winning streak of remarkably made films that can touch children as well as adults. “Up” contains all the magic they have been conjuring over the past years. It is a buddy movie essentially between an over enthusiastic boy named Russell and Carl Fredricksen, an old man who has always wanted to travel to Paradise Falls in South America. Not forgetting the throwaway humour, “Up” is a beautifully rendered, 3D animated film that is full of life-like detail – nothing less you’d expect from Pixar. The characters are extremely likeable and the adventure, rather exciting, because we care about these people. Throw in colourful and endearing animals, (a bird and a dog) and you have movie magic that cannot be gotten elsewhere.
