Review: Monsters Inc (3D)

World of Blackout 77-Word Film Review

Monsters Inc. (3D) Poster

Monsters Inc. (3D)
Cert: U / 92 mins / Dir. Pete Docter



While the 3D is nicely retrofitted to this timely re-release, it adds little, and the actual animation is starting to look a little dated. The only reason that's even noticeable is because of Pixar's continuing high standards. With storytelling this strong it wouldn't really matter but Boo is... well creepy-looking a lot of the time.

This is still a fantastic movie, but maybe save the cinema visit for the sequel?

Is the trailer representative of the film?
Yes.


Did I laugh, cry, gasp and sigh when I was supposed to?
Yes.


Does it achieve what it sets out to do?
Yes.


Pay at the cinema, Rent on DVD or just wait for it to be on the telly?
DVD.


Will I think less of you if we disagree about how good/bad this film is?
No.


Will I watch it again?
Yes.


Is there a Wilhelm Scream?
No!*1


And because you won't be happy until I've given it a score...


*1 I didn't hear one, anyway. Let me know if I missed it.
