Funny and poignant and full of life, Up easily qualifies as one of the best movies of the year so far. Go with someone you care about.

A hugely enjoyable work, whose care, craftsmanship and creative courage are rarely found in mainstream films - animated or otherwise.

If it had lived up to its golden first five minutes, Up would have been the film of the decade. As it is, it remains the best animated flick of 2009, a funny, moving, beautifully made argument that dreamers can move mountains.

What's so impressive about Up is that the film-makers never lose sight of their adult concerns.

Another original, boundary pushing story. It's not quite Nemo, but it will have you shouting 'Squirrel!' at every opportunity.
October 9, 2009
The humour gets weirder as it goes on and it's among the lightest of Pixar's films, but the first 20 minutes offer the saddest, most poignant sequence seen in an animation film since Bambi's mother died.
October 9, 2009
Everything Up does with quiet, time-bestriding imagination is a triumph.
October 9, 2009
Up is buoyant with thrills and spills, yet it's anchored, quite movingly, in the acceptance of mortality. This rollercoaster ride will leave everyone on an up.
October 9, 2009
Pixar's tenth movie is undoubtedly a work of art but what truly makes it glow is that it's a timeless story about love and has obviously been made with tons of the stuff.
October 9, 2009
Up matches or surpasses Pixar's previous hits like Toy Story, Monsters Inc and Finding Nemo. It shares their joyousness and visual flair, but for all its flights of fancy is more firmly rooted in the real, human world.
October 9, 2009
Up is a soaring (ha!) achievement, visionary entertainment, and one of the very best films of the year - animated or otherwise.
September 3, 2009
The latest computer-animated adventure from Pixar Studios has a simple premise that should enchant viewers of all ages, fusing childhood fantasies of escape with adult feelings of melancholy and regret.
September 2, 2009
Up is one of the best Pixar films, which means it's something very special.
August 11, 2009
I'm not as filled with the same helium for Disney/Pixar's Up as other critics, but I'd be cruel if I wasn't lifted by the story of rediscovering a life of adventure.
June 1, 2009
The movie is packed with lovely jokes, some of them funny in inexplicable ways.
June 1, 2009
The key to Pixar's success has always been the perfect blend of heart and humor -- and they've certainly done it again here.
June 1, 2009
This is really special.
May 29, 2009
An exquisite work of cinematic art that also happens to be the funniest, most touching, most exciting and most entertaining movie released so far this year.
May 29, 2009
Its charms appear to have been applied with surgical precision; by the end, I felt expertly sutured, but not much else.
May 29, 2009
To watch Up with any attention is to be moved and astonished by the economy with which specific visuals are invested with emotion throughout.
