The children... behaved, entertained by it all -- the story and the songs. Me? Not so much.

Being Pixar, the picture looks wonderful - lighting cinematographer Danielle Fienberg has outshone herself - but in the end, the derivative Coco lacks the spark of life found in The Book of Life.

The movie slips into a familiar rut and the scenery fades into the background.
October 21, 2017
With a fetching soundtrack and an array of visual delights in search of a comparably imaginative narrative, "Coco" is sweet and sentimental without being particularly engaging.

Coco makes sure to cross every item off its Mexican checklist -- tamales, sombreros, a shot of what looks like tequila -- but that's not the same as immersing us in a culture.

In the end, it's all too much, yet at the same time not enough. Despite its efforts, Coco can't rise above mid-tier Pixar.

I left Coco angry that its entire plot needn't have happened if the family had ever once acted reasonably or communicated properly.

Disney-Pixar's Coco was more enjoyable three years ago when it was titled The Book of Life and came from Twentieth Century Fox.

Thankfully, the final product is a wholesome love letter to a beloved occasion, which tugs at your heart strings just like a Mariachi's guitarrón.

This is a warm-hearted movie that probes deeper into the meaning of family and independence. It dives into Mexican culture with much gusto and joyous music, but its story has a universal power.

Unkrich's 2nd feature proves that with great animation, stellar storytelling, and moving moments of emotion, animated movies are still the best forms of filmmaking out there.

It really took me to another place.

A starting point for acts of kindness and of joy and remembering. And given Miguel's sunny optimism and all-embracing love, Coco is superior holiday viewing.

In a country with an ever increasing Hispanic and Mexican population, a film like Coco should have come around a long time ago.

It may not rival 'Inside Out' or 'Toy Story' as an all-time great Pixar film, but it certainly lands in the upper echelon and is one of their better original movies in years.

Once you get to the land of the dead it is beautiful, both in story as well as animation. The animation is so good in this movie.

Much to my surprise, given my initial reaction to the story, I found myself crying at the end.

Pixar ups their game every time...the music is very catchy, as warm as the theme and tone of the the end, I was a sobbing mess.
December 27, 2017
Aside from the look of the movie, it's the themes and story that push it over the top in the best possible way. Coco explores what it is to follow your dreams, respect your family and that seeing is not always believing.
December 18, 2017
Coco is a heartwarming story, about not only the importance of family and following your dreams, but also whether a person's mistakes are redeemable.
