Movie Review: Up

From Disney and Pixar comes another movie designed for kids but can be watched by the adults as well; and the spelling is easier with just 2 letters – “U” and “P”.

This story is about the adventures of a certain guy, Carl Fredricksen. Just like everyone else, he was dreaming of something impossible. But since this is just computer generated, then there should be no problems with it.

Carl wanted to become an explorer, just like his idol, Charles Muntz. When he was kid, as he was daydreaming, he met a girl by the name of Ellie, which then became Carl’s life long partner. They started out with a promise to place their house at the Paradise Falls somewhere in South America. Due to life’s financial challenges, they were unable to start their journey. After Ellie passed away, it is then up to Carl to make this dream come true.

Surely it was a very difficult task, but Carl, now an old Mr. Fredricksen gave a lot of his effort, and he has used some help from a camp-wilderness kid named Russel, a dog, and a bird. They battled out a freak of science that was Charles Muntz, and re-mapped Mr. Fredricksen’s adventure.

It was indeed a very good movie.

For kids, it worked out as an animated film.

For adults, it worked out as a story of dreams and goals, how to achieve them, using some help along the way, and drawing inspiration from someone. I am sure anyone would really love it.

There was about 5 scenes in which I shed some tears. I left them on the theatre house for the next one to wipe off.
