The highly anticipated sequel to the 2003 Pixar animated film, Finding Dory has finally arrived.. But was it worth the wait?
First let me start off saying the short film before Finding Dory is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Literally. It’s so cute.
Now into Finding Dory.
Ellen Degeneres, Al Brooks, Ty Burrel, everyone, the whole cast is great. There’s some speculation going around that Ellen Degeneres could be the first to be nominated for an Oscar for voice acting. Personally..I doubt it. She was great in the movie, no doubt, but I wouldn’t say it’s an “Oscar worthy performance”.
The pacing is extremely fast, but not in a bad way, there’s never a dull moment. It keeps you interested throughout the whole 90 minutes.
All the characters are very well developed, although there is one problem with the characters and we’ll get to that in a moment.
The story is a true Pixar adventure. Some were skeptical of how Dory, a side character in Finding Nemo, would carry her own movie, well, she does and it works perfectly.
The editing was great, I didn’t spot anything that I thought needed to be taken out or anything that needed to be put in, because like I said there’s never a dull moment.
Although I loved all the characters in Finding Dory, sometimes they feel forced in just to get Dory out of a bad situation. It always seemed like when Dory got into some trouble, just coincidently, another fish was there to help.
Finding Dory is great, but quite repetitive. Dory thinks she’s about to find her parents, doesn’t, gets into a bad situation, repeat.
Overall Finding Dory is a very fun but repetitive adventure, with some forced but funny characters.
“Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) is a wide-eyed, blue tang fish who suffers from memory loss every 10 seconds or so. The one thing she can remember is that she somehow became separated from her parents as a child. With help from her friends Nemo and Marlin, Dory embarks on an epic adventure to find them. Her journey brings her to the Marine Life Institute, a conservatory that houses diverse ocean species. Dory now knows that her family reunion will only happen if she can save mom and dad from captivity.”
