Last weekend we had our first whole family trip to the cinema – Olga, Maxim, and myself.  The choice of the moving picture was simple – “Up“, the only family friendly movie in the cinema right now.  Plus we all love animated films.  Plus I’ve heard quite a few good words about this one.

The animation was excellent, as always from Pixar.  But the story and the characters, I think, needed more work.  There were a few funny scenes, a few quite serious and sad ones.  It wasn’t just for the kids, but for the whole family.

Overall, while enjoyable, the film lacks something.  Either a crazy creature running around and getting into silly situations (even though there was a candidate), or a character with a funny voice (even though there was a candidate), or something completely different.

3 stars.
