The return of everyone’s favourite ‘Disney’ house – Pixar – and I was itching to see this one. As ever, the storyline is well layered, and the animation is… breathtaking at times, some of the effects are truly staggering. Plenty of funny moments, and plenty of well aimed, dual level, jokes. All in all a typical Pixar film. Except. Well it’s hard to figure what it is that doesn’t quite get there, and I think the only thing that let’s this film down is the choice of ‘voices’. With no offense to Albert Brooks, but his voice work with Marlin, whilst in no way bad, doesn’t quite get there for me, leaving you just a little detached. However it is still leaps and bounds ahead and above it’s contemporaries.
