The underlying theme is the discovery of true brotherly friendship, love and support--how can you go wrong with that?

Onward gets its job done and presents themes and questions that are interesting to consider, and if it feels too ambitious for its own good, it's doing more than most of the other films currently in theatres.

Yes, it isn't really another WALL-E, Up, Inside Out or Coco but, then again, what is, kids?

It may not be the most original of Pixar Movies, but it's dynamic and charming enough to provide high end entertainment.

The strength of Onward, and what moved me so much, was how it balances both themes - not sacrificing its message for the jokes. Instead, it expertly displays an equal brilliance of humour and emotional impact.

A fun family story. [Full review in Spanish]

The animation, as expected, is top-notch and at least Scanlon deserves credit for bringing out the best in Tom Holland and Chris Pratt's voice performances as Ian and Barley Lightfoot.

But while it may not be the most inventive animated adventure and its emotional impact may not be as powerful as Pixar's finest projects, Onward is still a poignant tale with several moments of warmth that make the ride engaging.

It's the kind of family movie, funny and original, that's greatly enjoyed when viewed as a group, but suffers slightly when watched alone at home. [Full review in Spanish]

This funnybone-slaying riot gives way to the kind of heart-rending climax that proves the Pixar Punch keeps manifesting itself in more and more unexpected places.

It doesn't have the "Pixar-ness" of, say, "Up," but it's a sweet movie about family and loss.

There's something strangely comforting in this time of national uncertainty to be found in this film about rediscovering simple magic in a world governed by technology.
April 7, 2020
Onward's a solid little movie, even if it doesn't really clear the super-high standards that have been set for the CGI animation studio.
April 6, 2020
It's a gorgeous movie that rewards those scanning its full frame.
April 6, 2020
There's a lot to like in Onward, the least of which is its bright, appealing animation, character design and world building, but you wouldn't expect anything less from an outfit as accomplished as Pixar.

A very sweet story, good but not great...kids will love it.
April 3, 2020
...this endearing, heartfelt story of loss, and the creating of space to allow for it, does strike a nerve.
April 2, 2020
Absurdly moving.

You will not be surprised to learn that the actual magic makers at Pixar have found another way to suck tears from your eye sockets with great velocity.

This story follows the standard Pixar playbook, with strong characters and a deft blend of humor, pathos and a powerful emotional message. It also features the usual Pixar technical competence and some lovely animation.
