Onward

Tom Holland and Chris Pratt voice two elf brothers whose attempt to bring their father back to life goes terribly wrong in this Pixar animation. Also lending their voices are Octavia Spencer and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

The two brothers discover a spell that will bring their dearly departed dad back for 24 hours. But when nothing goes according to plan, it's suddenly a race against time to fix what they've done before it's too late.

You won't feel cheated by it, but you won't feel elated, either. Yet Pixar, in its very bravura, has more than earned the right to put out a movie like this one - an unabashed piece of product, a kind of Pixar place-holder made with a tiny dash of soul.

It's transcendent, cathartic, structurally smart and delivers a soulful narrative twist. It's painful, but in the best way.

The majority of Pixar's films are special for one reason or another. Which makes the generic bro humour and familiar Dungeons & Dragons role-play vibe of Onward a let-down.

The untimely death of a parent is, of course, a timeless fairy-tale trope and something of a Disney narrative specialty, but "Onward" employs the cliché in ways that feel both more personal and more daring.

Beneath the bro-friendly, fantasy-art trappings, Onward finds a little bit of that old Pixar magic.

Pixar returns with a great big power-chord of a movie - heart-pumping, resonant, and positively harmonious.
