Up (2009)

The untouchable Pixar Animation Studios (WALL-E, Toy Story) presents their latest film. Famed for stories about unlikely characters (ants, fish, rats, robots), they now turn their attention to old men.

Carl Fredricksen is our seventy-something hero, who one day attaches a whole lot of balloons to his house and takes flight. Along for the ride is a young clueless boy scout. Together they travel to South America to search for a legendary waterfall.

Academy Award, BAFTA and Golden Globe winner for Best Animated Film and Best Score, 2010.

Just among friends, I’m not ashamed to admit that Pixar Studio’s latest creation found me with ‘something in my eye’ at several moments. That one of those moments occurred within the first ten minutes is a testament to both my emotional fragility and the skill with which this charming adventure has been lovingly crafted.

A captivating odd-couple adventure that becomes funnier and more exciting as it flies along.

A coming-of-old-age story that breaks the heart, tickles the funny bone and fires the imagination, Up is a captivating, exuberant delight. And did we mention it contains The Greatest Moment In Movie Animation? Oh.

Passages of glorious imagination are invariably matched by stock characters and banal story choices.

Rarely has any film, let alone an animated one powered by the logic of dream and fantasy, been able to move so successfully -- and so effortlessly -- through so many different kinds of cinematic territory.

Winsome, touching and arguably the funniest Pixar effort ever, the gorgeously rendered, high-flying adventure is a tidy 90-minute distillation of all the signature touches that came before it.

If it had lived up to its golden first five minutes, Up would have been the film of the decade. As it is, it remains the best animated flick of 2009, a funny, moving, beautifully made argument that dreamers can move mountains.
