Review: Disney and Pixar's Up

Disney and Pixar brings magic to the big screen again with UP.

Balloon salesman Carl Fredricksen is a typical grumpy old man. But he wasn't always grumpy. He was just devastated by his personal loss. But he still aims to fulfill dreams he and his wife shared and what could make it more better than an adventure with an 8th year old wilderness explorer named Russell.

Carl Fredricksen was voiced by Edward Asner. This maybe the first time a veteran actor plays a lead role in an full-length animated film for today's generation. Making a hero of a grumpy old man was a good idea. It's not really expected and a tandem between an old man and an eight year old is very unlikely. Disney never fails to include life's lessons in their movies. The 3D experience will make it better so don't watch without a 3D specs.

The advance screening last August 14 was made possible by Walt Disney Studio Phils., TV 5, SM Cinema with Jack & Jill Roller Coaster, C2, and Milo. Special thanks to Azrael for the invitation. This movie can be enjoyed by the whole family. Disney and Pixar's Up will be shown in theatres everywhere on August 19. I give it a 5 out of 5 balloons. Rated GP.
