'Up' is brimming with imagination, charm and consistent comedy. It has both a grownup sense of drama and a kid-like sense of adventure. The characters have depth and poignancy. Another home-run for Pixar.

Even contrasted with the childish originality of Toy Story or Monsters Inc or the satirical action of the Incredibles, Up may be Pixar's best film. It's storytelling at its purest and tells a deep tale of growing up and growing old, of longlasting love, of pursuing dreams and chasing goals. It is a great film for kids and adults that doesn't need to be animated to work. Of course, this being Pixar, the animation is vivid and beautiful, creating some of the most lush and colorful landscapes the studio has woven to date. The opening sequences, much talked about, is deserving of all praise.

Who would ever though that an animated film can be so dramatic? The film starts with Carl Fredricksen and Ellie as childhood sweethearts. They both share similar ambitions which is the aviator Charles Muntz and flight. The adventure begins when Carl and Russell goes to Paradise Falls. Its’ premise of the story is good, the father son like relationship, reaching for your dreams and being persistent as Russell. The only that still bothers me is the realism of the film. Yes it is animated; the idea of a house flying and navigating it just escapes me. There were a few dismal moments where you think, how can an old man do this? How smart was the bird? There were some depressing parts as well which may assist in the story to make it effective, still there could have been changes to …

This is one of the most heartfelt, imaginative, and moving films Pixar has ever made. Up is without a doubt one of the greatest films you will ever see. It's funny, emotional, exciting, inventive, and unique. This is the kind of film you just fall in love with. The animation is beautiful, the story is original and adventurous, the voice work is phenomenal, and the film is entirely captivating. Rarely does anyone find a film that impacts them on so many levels. Up is definitely one of those films.
Edward Asner voices the character of Carl Fredricksen, an aging man who has recently lost his wife and is being forced into a retirement home. When Carl was just a small boy, he had a passion …

This is a masterpiece. This is the best animated film I've ever seen so far (surpasses "The Incredibles", "Ratatoille", "Cars" and probably even "WALL-E"). There is nothing to complain about - great acting, story, voice and music. The only problem I had with this movie is that in several places it is incredibly, insanely sad. It is certainly not a comedy (although it has a lot good funny moments), and probably is better suitable for adult audience. It is the 3rd movie that ever made me cry (and believe me, I'm not a "soft" person, but rather cynical guy that doesn't care much for other people), and the first one that managed to make me cry during first 15 minutes. It is touching, it is perfectly done, but I still wished that things turned out better, straight from the beginning, and main …
