Release Date: May 29, 2009 MPAA Rating: PG-13
Genre(s): Animation, Children and Family
Up is an incredibly touching story of love and loss and adventure that’s been brought to life in an animated tale.
The Up screenplay is written with such maturity you almost forget you are watching an animated film (if you keep with the thinking that animation is geared towards children). As the film moves along, the characters become more developed, the dialogue is sharp and funny, and the levels at which you emphasize with the characters is at the highest level.
There is not one fault in the animation of Up; it is spot on throughout. With the use of vibrant colors, it bursts onto the screen making it even more enjoyable for the eye to behold.
