A feisty septuagenarian teams with a fearless wilderness ranger to do battle with a vicious band of beasts and villains in this computer-animated adventure scripted by Pixar veteran Bob Peterson and co-directed by Peterson and Monsters, Inc. director Peter Docter. Carl Fredricksen is a 78-year-old balloon salesman. His entire life, Carl has longed to wander the wilds of South America. Then, one day, the irascible senior citizen shocks his neighbors by tying thousands of balloons to his home and finally taking flight. But Carl isn't alone on his once-in-a-lifetime journey, because stowed away on his front porch is an excitable eight-year-old wilderness explorer named Russell. Later, as the house touches down on the world's second largest continent, Carl and his unlikely traveling companion step outside to discover that not only is their new front lawn considerably larger, but that the predators therein are much more ferocious than anything they ever faced back home.

In short, this movie takes you on an emotional adventure like no other (or as Pixar does best). Up starts off with a heart-wrenching, tear-wiping montage, then escelates forward toward adrenaline-pumping thrills and adventure, finally bringing you back down for a very gentle and satisfied landing, leaving your every cinematic hopes completely fulfilled. Don't hate yourself by not seeing Up (despite your age and taste). In fact, save the rental fee and just buy it if you're a collector. But then again, I really didn't need to write this reveiw. I beleive I speak for the majority when I say the Pixar logo speaks for itself: Your satisfaction guaranteed.
Favorable: Uplifting, and fun.This was a great movie, a good choice for adults to enjoy animation. Lively dialogue, fun story line, and humor with well developed characters is all part of this amazing DVD. It will definitely take you "up" and away. Get your movie snacks and ENJOY! the adventure.
Turn out the lights and settle back with your favorite drink, and snack and your better half and watch, this heartfelt story!
Up is the most original and unique film i've ever watched with a beautiful meaning to the story,Hilarious and exciting.Definite thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!
I never heard of this movie Up until the day I watched it. This movie can be seen in theaters or on Blue Ray and comes with four bonus disks, which I have not watched yet. The cast of this movie is great. The funniest part of the cast is the voices of the characters. They fit the personalities very well especially for the character "Russell", who for me is the funniest. Up is a "four and a half star" cartoon movie based on a young boy and girl who grow up together, get married and fulfill their dreams with a little twist. This is a very comical, serious, and affecting movie that can bring tears to your eyes from laughing and actually tears to your eyes from the emotional scenes. I watched this with my three roommates and we were cracking up throughout the whole movie. Whether you are twenty five years old or five years old you will have the same reaction. One of the most appealing things about this movie is the DVD case itself. The cover catches the eye with the bright colors and the characters especially. Up is a very over exaggerated movie but it is made from Disney. If you are ever having a bad day and need to cheer or simply need a laugh this is the movie that will do the trick. After the credits roll and it goes back to the home screen it will have you thinking. Thinking about life and how important people are. I am not going to give anything away but you will think to yourself why is this old man treating this little boy like this? In the end you will feel just as the old man does and that's the whole point of this movie. I would have to say that UP is in my top five favorites ever. After watching it for the first time I think I literally watched it four more times during the same week. I cannot really say anything bad about this movie except that in some cases things can get a little too crazy for kids but it is nothing too crazy to prevent a seven year old from watching it. If I had to describe this movie in one word it would have to be "vibrant". I give this movie two thumbs up and recommend it to all.
Up is an animated PG movie released by Disney and directed by Pete Docter from 2009. The two main characters are Russel and Carl, played by Ed Asner and Christopher Plummer. The movie starts with Carl meeting a young girl named Ellie, Carl’s future wife. They both dream of going to a lost land in South America based on a documentary called the Spirit of Adventure. Unfortunately, Carl’s wife dies and Carl remembers the promise he made to her to take her to South America, specifically Paradise Falls. He gets to South America in his house, flying their by balloons. However, with him is Russel, a boy scout who seeks to achieve an assisting the elderly badge for boy scouts. Carl and Russel go to South America together in the house. While in South America, they find a bird, the bird that was featured in the documentary Spirit of Adventure. Simultaneously seeking this bird is an adventurer, who will stop at nothing to find it. Russel and Carl defeat this villain and take the bird home with them in the Spirit of Adventure. Up is, in my opinion, one of the most successful movies when it comes to teaching moral values and triggering an emotional response in viewers. Disney succeeds in doing this throughout cliffhangers throughout the movie as well as events that both crush and fulfill viewer’s hearts. The first lesson Disney tries to teach is the power of dreaming. Carl saw the Spirit of Adventure as a kid and for decades believed in the power of going to Paradise Falls. In hindsight, one might say the whole movie is based on Carl’s dream to travel to Paradise Falls. The second lesson Disney tries to teach is the power of a promise. When Carl first meets Ellie, he “crossed his heart” to bring her to Paradise Falls. As afforementioned, the movie is based on him fulfilling this promise. Although she dies, Carl still completes this promise by flying their in his house, where all of his pictures of Ellie are. Also, throughout the movie, Carl is reminded of this promise through the pictures on the wall and the Adventure Book which Ellie made for him as a kid. Another promise Carl made was to Russel, who had an emotional response to the bird. Carl “crossed his heart” to protect the bird. He ended up fulfilling this promise as well. One of the most interesting aspects of Up is not only the important lessons it teaches, but also the satisfaction one receives from doing the right thing. For example, during the most emotional moments in the movie, through the incredible power of Pixar animation, we see Carl’s pupils dilate and his eyes water. Up deserves five stars because it not only has an incredibly story as well as life-like visual effects, it sparks an emotional response in the viewer that can be translated into real life.
the best movie by pixar ever created in my opinion
I think this is a good movie and great for kids. This movie is about how a kid and guy go on an adventure up in the air so they can get away from the city and all the mean people. They land on a island and have a great time but they end up going back home.
I really enjoy seeing PIXAR moviesn like. UP, Monsters, INC.
Very loosely based on the play "Up (The Man in the Flying Chair)" by Bridget Carpenter (published by Samuel French), UP is more of an adult film than a children's cartoon. Just as the case is with "The Little Prince" by Saint-Exupery, kids will find this movie delightfully entertaining, funny, and cute; us old folk will have a lot of thinking to do after the credits roll. Despite the (at times) heavy sadness that will grip your heart while watching the first thirty minutes of the movie, you will find the movie very uplifting and inspirational once it's over. After all, it's just an adventure! Highly recommended to everyone, from adults to childen.
