Too much of everything
For all the hype it got I was expecting a lot more!
Worth seeing just to witness how winsome it is.
Animation was great, the story was mediocre and predictable.
Yet again, Pixar never ceases to touch our hearts and drop our jaws with their unpredictable storylines, loveable characters, amazing visuals, and mind blowing plot twists. Never again will you see a movie as powerful as this one. Teaching us that there is always more to people than what we see and also how music affects lives. Be amazed and be touched by this masterpiece and it will leave you with a deep appreciation for family and music.
One of the best animated movie by pixar. Very realistic character depiction. Excellent color editing. Emotional scenes were portrayed well. Fun, music, family, drama and everything else together. Kudos to the creators of this film. Excellent.
I walked in to the movie not knowing much about it, but the popular opinion that it is a "good film" more than a "fun cartoon" is the correct one. This is not a movie made for 5 year-olds, as Coco is one of the most brutal attacks on the audiences' emotions Pixar has ever perpetrated. In fact, I think this movie is too devastating for younger viewers, who don't wish their hopes and dreams destroyed. The harsh reality, murders, child abuse and death that this movie is obsessed with is great for those of us with a mccabe sense of humor, but I am surprised that this bizarre movie found an audience at all. Bring it on, I say! It's easily the best Pixar movie since 2006's Ratatouille.
