ProFabulous characters!

ConsNone that I can see!

Hi fellow Ciao reviewers! I'm back with another film review on the latest Disney film I've watched...Finding Nemo. For those of you who aren't really sure about watching this movie, I've started in the usual fashion with a few well chosen quotes from those critics! "A clown fish without a...

You may not know this, but deep under the ocean in the beautiful Great Barrier Reef lives Marlin, a Clownfish, and his only son, Nemo. Now, you’re probably thinking ‘A clownfish, he must be really funny’ but you’d be wrong. In fact, Marlin has a very sad story to...

Now it is fair to say that the good folk of Disney have been producing decent films for decades, usually they are fun to watch, well written and offer a broad appeal for all age groups. But these films pale when compared to the work Disney have produced since teaming up with Pixar. Disney/Pixar...

“FISHY BUSINESS”

published 17/06/2004

ProLovely characters, good story, a fun film

ConsNot quite so much adult appeal as previous Disney/...

“Finding Nemo” is the latest animated blockbuster from Disney and Pixar, the team who brought us “Toy Story”, “A Bug’s Life” and “Monsters Inc”. I’ve been a big fan of this type of film ever since I saw the first “Toy Story” movie, so I was keen to see “Finding Nemo” and I recently borrowed it...

I was lucky enough to win two tickets to a preview screening of Finding Nemo on Wednesday night and I've seen a few clips of the film on tele and it looks great, so armed with my seven year old I decided to go and see if it was possible for it to be even better than my favourite animation - the...

ProCharacters; animation; plot

ConsNothing

2003 saw Disney's magic brought us Finding Nemo, a brilliant tale about fish that wins me over for its characters as opposed to anything else. The plot itself is very good. It gives us an adventurous clownfish, Nemo, who gets captured by a diver who wants a present for his niece. Nemo's dad...

ProOne for all of the family

ConsThe beginning is a bit sad

Noah has a collection of films that he loves and watches over and over again (when I let him!). Finding Nemo is in this collection and I think I must have seen it around a million times by now so I feel that I am qualified in writing this review. The film is about a little clown fish called Nemo...

ProSuitable for all ages,, proper funny film.

Call me a big kid but this has to be my favourite film of all time. Finding Nemo has to be another masterful piece of family entertainment from Pixar, who created films such as A Bugs Life, Toy Story, Incredibles, etc. Plot Marlin, the clown fish from the great barrier reef has lost his son in...

I am a huge Disney fan and have most of the films on DVD. However one that I don't have for some reason is Finding Nemo. This was on Disney Movies a while ago and Harry and I settled down to watch it. I had seen it before but Harry hasnt. However, we recorded it and he has watched it many times...

I am one of those people who gets distracted very easily, and during a vital point in the film, start rummaging through my popcorn looking for the burnt, crunchy ones, completely lose track of what's going on, and end up watching the rest of the film in utter confusion. That is why I prefer the...

ProPure entertainment, safe

ConsBland, Predictable

I'm a grumpy old man. I wasn't expecting much - anything which gets as much hype as 'Finding Nemo' is bound to be rubbish - right? - WRONG!

The other day I saw this making of ‘mockumentary’ on CBBC or something about this film and I was so impressed that I went to it later that afternoon. I’m very happy to tell you that I was not in any way disappointed by the finished article! Finding Nemo is, as with all Pixar offerings...

Product Information : Finding Nemo (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

FINDING NEMO, directed by Andrew Stanton and Lee Unkrich, follows Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks), an overprotective clown fish father, as he desperately searches the sea for his missing son, Nemo (Alexander Gould). Marlin's journey leads him beyond the Great Barrier Reef into deeper and darker waters, where he meets Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), a forgetful yet optimistic blue tang, and a number of not-so-friendly--and often very hungry--aquatic creatures. Meanwhile, little Nemo finds himself in a dentist's fish tank in Sydney, Australia, along with other underwater captives, including Gill (Willem Dafoe), the group's scarred Moorish idol leader. As Nemo works with his new friends on a plan to escape their tank, Marlin and Dory swim closer, but they'll need more than just fins to get into the dentist's office.<BR>This fifth computer-animated outing by Pixar continues the company's remarkable winning streak that began with TOY STORY. Like other Pixar films, FINDING NEMO features a story with heart--this time, a father-and-son tale--and thoroughly charming leads--in this case, Marlin, Nemo, and Dory. And, of course, there's an army of fascinating supporting characters, including Bruce (Barry Humphries), a great white shark on a no-fish diet; Crush (director/screenwriter Stanton), a surfer-dude sea turtle; Peach (Allison Janney), a stuck-to-the-aquarium starfish; and Nigel (Geoffrey Rush), a bold pelican. However, what truly distinguishes NEMO from even its CGI cousins is its stunning depiction of aquatic life, from the colourful creatures on a coral reef to a blue whale on the vast expanse of the open ocean. By combining the aesthetic of a National Geographic marine life documentary with clever jokes and Hitchcock references, NEMO succeeds in its bid to up the ante for animated films yet again. And be sure to watch the credits or you just might miss something!

Professional Reviews

Review: A sparkling treasure trove of snappy comedy, lush visuals and breakneck action. (Entertainment Weekly, 2011-04-11)<br><br>A thing of beauty, hugely entertaining and way cool (Rolling Stone, 2011-04-11)<br><br>NEMO creates an awe-inducing sense of the infinite in its watery visuals (Sight and Sound, 2011-04-11)<br><br>A buoyant adventure [...] Notable first for its spectacularly colorful underwater setting, which gives the picture one of the most striking visual backdrops ever seen in an animated film (Variety, 2011-04-11)<br><br>
