    The movie starts off with a touching backstory that makes you smile and breaks your heart within the first 10 minutes of the movie.

    The movie itself has Pixar's sensational attention to detail in terms of animation and textures, while the story is lively without a boring moment.

    A heart-touching tale overall, that I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

    Up has a great opening, a touching mini-film that could essentially have stood on its own. While there are some funny and heartfelt moments after this prologue, the film never quite fulfills that promise. It just goes a little gonzo for me once the house/air balloon reaches foreign climes and turns into a Road Runner cartoon with pulp villains, talking dogs, and so forth. If the adventure had somehow been revealed to be in the old man's imagination (even ambiguously), it would all have worked better, but that's not the case. I don't have a problem with an arthritic old man restored to action hero agility by the spirit of adventure however - it IS a cartoon! The gags are funny, there are some surprisingly dark moments, and the theme of finding adventure in everyday life is well-rendered. But yeah, it's a bit "anything goes" in the second act. 5 years 5 months ago
