Up

Breathtaking - Slick

3 Points

Viewer Rating:Slick has rated Up rating: 5 Star

This is a film that sets the mood for the ideal family Christmas, and 3D just adds oodles of dimension. Not per se a comedy but you'll find yourself smiling and sometimes laughing all the way through. I loved the style of animation too, big square jaw and fingers on the old boy, and although the message is of lost opportunity it's as much about fresh adventures. 100% a cinema experience, talking dogs and malevolent twists - perfect for all ages - get out of the recession and put your feet up.
