Critic Reviews for Coco

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (5)

Coco is as indebted to Ratatouille as it is to Studio Ghibli's Spirited Away, but the combination of sensibilities and the colorful, semi-spooky milieu of the afterlife realm where most of the film is set is not at all unwelcome.

The naked desperation of the skeleton characters provides the heart and soul of the movie, and it's genuinely touching to see Miguel partner up with family members he either misses or never got to meet.

The animation juggernaut has once more shown how its storytelling acumen and visual splendors are still the surest dance partners in movies today.

[An] effective yet hardly exceptional addition to the Pixar oeuvre ...

The film brings Pixar's customary emotional directness to a festive, reverent, and wide-ranging pastiche of Mexican culture.

Audience Reviews for Coco

Compared to Pixar's previous original installment, Inside Out, this one's attempt to win best film of the year is extremely slim due to its huge difficulty attempting to keep up the hype from the get-go. While Inside Out may seem to be on something to win best film of the year and it literally worked, Coco, on the other hand, may seem to follow the same tracks that Inside Out went but it just can't find itself to win best film of the year. Although it won't win best film of the year in my opinion, Coco is definitely a solid film that definitely proves that Pixar is still the king of animation movies since the release of their first feature film, Toy Story, and no other animation studio can overtake the throne. If you can still find a way to ask them to see this movie, please do so right away because Coco is definitely worth watching since it's Pixar after all.
