The heartwarming "Coco" is everything you expect from Pixar. It packs beautiful animation, pathos, and humor, while always being respectful to the culture it illustrates.

Beautifully illustrated, and I gave a genuine gasp at the well-calibrated third act plot twist

Pixar rarely makes a misstep and Coco proves the studio is still at the top of mountain when it comes to animation. With vibrant visuals, memorable characters and music that is upbeat and emotional - this ode to Mexican culture, specifically the Day of the Dead, is simply stunning. It tackles some pretty heavy themes and shares a lot in common with Up (not that I have an issue with that), but in the end it's about family, following your own dreams and celebrating life but remembering those who have passed before. Watch it with your family, and prepare to be moved.

"Coco" is a beautifully animated film with plenty of heart to go around, of course knowing it's from Pixar. How the film explores 'Day of the Dead' and it's world by taking a particular culture and doing something incredibly unique with it. Much better than "The Book of Life", I can say that. Each character having their own colorful personality which makes them a enjoy to watch.
You know for a family movie, it's packed with a lot of themes such as: death, murder, and aging, that was handled so maturely.
My issues with the movie is it's villain, because I didn't think this type of story needed one. I won't spoil anything, but doesn't really matter since a lot of twist and turns can be seen a mile way, it gets predicable at times especially towards the end. I'm sorry to say this but …
