WHAT I LIKED: 'Up' is clearly a lot of fun, but it is also universally recognised as Pixar's saddest film, and it most definitely is. Yes the themes of age and family run so strongly through the beautiful narrative and characters here that the film brings constant emotion, yet at the same time that doesn't stop it from bringing all the magical Pixar fun that you'd expect. Effectively then, you could say it's Pixar cranked up to eleven, and that is a compliment in many different ways.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Sometimes it's so gushing with all those charms that it feels like it's trying too hard and has lost some of its more humble beauty.
VERDICT: Another brilliant Pixar film where the usual tropes are layered on even thicker; 'Up' is a genuinely emotional rollercoaster.

Great begining for adults, great ending for children.. but they should have chosen one of the other, an emotive movie like the first half would have been amazing. Animation is great and gags are animation 101, very well done

A great uplifting movie (no pun intended), Up is so brilliant with several comedic and dramatic moments. Pixar delivers one of their most heartfelt films, with a message that transcends age.

Up is funny and special. It's good for family. simple and easy to understand. I would like to recommend this movie to my friends and their children.

While the first 10 minutes are some of the best of cinema history, the rest of Up, while cute and entertaining, is pretty underwhelming in comparison with those first 10 minutes. Not a bad film, but personally not one of my favorites.

By far, this is one of my favourite animated films...EVER! Never in my life have I seen such a movie that goes into such depth, and yet is bound to make you cry. (Partly because I'm only 14 and a half years old).
It consisted of some great messages, nice musical themes and some brilliant performances!
This was TRULY a beautiful movie that is definately a worthwhile watch.

There's nothing like watching this movie with kids although my kids are adults and we all love Up. The story of an old man and a boy becoming the best of friends through an adventure of epic proportions is just what we needed this evening.

Easily one of the best Disney movies. I still remember going to the cinema and it amazed me bad then. I rewatched it and it's still one of the best and most emotion-filled out there. I refuse to believe that there was someone who watched the movie and didn't tear up.

Visually stunning, funny, dramatic, adventurous and exciting Up is a great film. Ed Asner's vocal performance as Carl Fredricksen is great, Christopher Plummer does a good job of voicing the villain Charles Muntz and the rest of the cast is entertaining. Pete Docter does a good job of directing this movie and manages to allow the film to appeal to audiences of all ages with one of the best things to come out of this movie being its emotional moments predominantly in the dialogue-free love story between Carl and Ellie. It demonstrates how Pixar are great at what they do and the viewer may want to dwell up with tears. All in all, Pixar did yet another great job. Although I haven't reviewed it yet, I still think this film deserved the Academy Award for Best Picture more than The Hurt Locker. But this movie's still pretty fun.

So good I have no words to describe it

What's NOT to love?!? If you can't love Doug the Dog, you need a heart transplant. It may be Disney/Pixar, but the story has surprising depth. Have the Kleenex handy for the tears at both ends of the emotional spectrum.

I'm really disappointed that I didn't receive the Kool-aid everyone else got to drink before watching this movie. I had high expectations since it has outstanding reviews, and it seems like every person I know loves it. But I just really couldn't stand any part of it. I don't think the first 10 minutes are a tearjerker. I didn't find their relationship particularly cute, just rather depressing. They didn't actually even get to live.

And besides that, the characters were pretty obnoxious. The little boy was so incredibly annoying and reminded me why I have no interest in having kids myself. The only characters I liked were the dumb dog and the bird. And although this movie isn't particularly long, it felt like it lasted 3 times as long as it actually did. The only reason I made it through the whole thing was I kept hoping it would get better. It did not.
