“Finding Dory” : What Do The Reviews Say??

Dory

The much awaited sequel for the Pixar blockbuster Finding Nemo is releasing in a few days amidst good buzz. So what do the reviews from the world’s top critics  say about Finding Dory? Have a look:

  1. Sweet, but not as funny or as original as the original – Roger Moore (MovieNation) [Thumbs Up]
  2. The visual personality of the movie is fantastically vivid and bright, the story itself, less so. – Chicago Tribune [Thumbs Up]
  3. It rises above its crowded narrative with an intense emotional core, taking a protagonist whose affliction had been played mostly for comedy, and exploring the emptiness and loneliness of her plight. – San Francisco Chronicle [Thumbs Up]
  4. Its heroine may suffer from short-term memory loss, but viewers with any memory at all will realize that Finding Dory falls rather short of its wondrous progenitor. – Hollywood Reporter [Thumbs Down]
  5. The visual personality of the movie is fantastically vivid and bright, the story itself, less so. – Chicago Tribune [Thumbs Up]
  6. Finding Dory, like most “lesser Pixar,” is more fun around the edges than the competition tends to be at center. – A.V. Club [Thumbs Up]
  7. “Finding Dory” upholds the Pixar tradition with plenty of inventive humor, cleverly drawn characters and emotionally resonant moments. – NewsDay [Thumbs Up]
  8. Finding Dory is one of the most devastating things Pixar has made – all while often being even bouncier than Finding Nemo. – Village Voice [Thumbs Up]
  9. Dory is still irrepressible in Finding Dory, still making her way brightly and cluelessly through life in a state of perpetual now, but her backstory adds a steady element of pathos to a movie that otherwise follows in the same beats as the original. – BuzzfeedNews [Thumbs Up]
  10. Pixar’s wizardry is baked into every detail, from the sun-dappled ocean surfaces to the underwater visuals that border on photorealism. It’s unforgettable stuff. – TimeOut [Thumbs Up]
  11. One of the biggest and most pleasant surprises in a film with too few of them is just how resonant Dory will be for parents of kids with learning disabilities. – Entertainment Weekly [Thumbs Up]
  12. Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane, the co-directors of “Finding Dory,” have made a beautiful, rambunctious, and fully felt sequel – a movie totally worth its salt water. – Variety [Thumbs Up]

It seems there is near-unanimous acclaim for the Pixar film and it sure seems to be another winner from the animation studios’ stable!
