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.
