Genre: Animation/Adventure/Drama/Comedy

Starring (voiceover): Edward Asner, Cristopher Plummer, Jordan Nagai, Bob Peterson

Up forms a part of the current crop of 3D animated movies hitting cinemas. Two small kids Carl and Ellie share a common passion for adventure. They soon get married and live a happy life. Years pass by and their dream of having a house on Paradise Falls, South America remains unfulfilled. Soon after Ellies death, Carl (Asner) decides to fulfill Ellie's last wish and converts his house into a giant flying thing, by tying together thousands of helium filled balloons and takes off into the sky. To accompany him, he has Russell (Nagai) an over-enthusiastic wilderness boy scout who simply wanted to help Carl cross the road and win himself a badge, but lands up becoming a part of his maniacal adventure and Doug (Peterson) a dog with a talking collar, who is a part of a pack of strays belonging to the ex-explorer Charles Muntz (Plummer) who is currently in South America searching for a rare bird since years to prove its existence to the world. After watching a 3D movie after probably years, i was left a little disappointed overall. Apart from just adding some amount of clarity, the 3D effect was seem to have been added simply as a marketing strategy and attract more viewers. Lift your glasses and watch the regular version and its just as good. The movie was a little slow to start, but the moment his house took off, you knew the actual movie has now begun. The movie was never meant to make you laugh, an essential for all animation movies according to me, but it makes up with an amazing adventure packed and thrilling tale that might just leave you teary-eyed in the end.

Thumbs up: Nice story, character detailing
Thumbs down: 3D is pointless

Rating: 7.6/10
