My overall impression on “Up” the movie is that it is a great movie for all ages. This movie has so much to it. It has action, comedy, and tears waiting to be shed. By the end of the movie, you will want to go on an adventure.
Carl Fredricksen (Ed Asner) and his wife Ellie had a shared dream since childhood, to visit exotic Paradise Falls in South America. After Ellie dies, Carl decides to make his wife’s dream come true and unveils hundreds of balloons to fly his house to Paradise Falls. A young Wildlife Explorer scout named Russell (Justin Nagai) happens to be on the porch when the house starts to float. When they get there, it becomes a whole different story. First they run into a giant bird who Russel calls “Snipe”. Next they run into a little dog named Doug (Bob Peterson). When Carl meets the famous Charles Muntz(Christopher Plummer), a famous explorer. He starts to get a vibe that Charles isn’t as nice as he thought.
The aspect of animation plays greatly upon the movie. Animation lets characters that you wouldn’t see anywhere but on the big screen real. In the movie, you get a sense of imagination. It makes you feel like you are in a dream and that the characters were made by you. In my opinion, if the movie was made with real actors, I don’t think I would get as much out of it.
The movie keeps you engaged with all of the problems that start to arise. The sequence that everything happened was perfect. When I watched it, I didn’t get lost like other movies. In my opinio,n I felt a great flow in the movie.
“Up” is a great movie for all ages and will be having you want to go on an adventure.
