Funny and poignant and full of life, Up easily qualifies as one of the best movies of the year so far. Go with someone you care about.

A hugely enjoyable work, whose care, craftsmanship and creative courage are rarely found in mainstream films - animated or otherwise.

What's so impressive about Up is that the film-makers never lose sight of their adult concerns.

Another original, boundary pushing story. It's not quite Nemo, but it will have you shouting 'Squirrel!' at every opportunity.
October 9, 2009
Up matches or surpasses Pixar's previous hits like Toy Story, Monsters Inc and Finding Nemo. It shares their joyousness and visual flair, but for all its flights of fancy is more firmly rooted in the real, human world.

The latest computer-animated adventure from Pixar Studios has a simple premise that should enchant viewers of all ages, fusing childhood fantasies of escape with adult feelings of melancholy and regret.

The movie is packed with lovely jokes, some of them funny in inexplicable ways.

The key to Pixar's success has always been the perfect blend of heart and humor -- and they've certainly done it again here.

This is really special.

An exquisite work of cinematic art that also happens to be the funniest, most touching, most exciting and most entertaining movie released so far this year.

Its charms appear to have been applied with surgical precision; by the end, I felt expertly sutured, but not much else.
May 29, 2009
To watch Up with any attention is to be moved and astonished by the economy with which specific visuals are invested with emotion throughout.
May 29, 2009
There are not words enough to express how good Up is.
May 29, 2009
The lessons of Up lift us, even as they ground our heroes in what really matters.
May 29, 2009
It propels the viewer up, up and away in an experience combining smart, imaginative storytelling with dazzling dreamlike visuals, creating an experience that is the special province of animation -- at once utterly convincing and completely impossible.
May 29, 2009
Up is less visually exuberant than many of the other Pixar films, but in this case that's a plus.
May 29, 2009
[A] kid's adventure yarn embedded in a grownup tale about grief and regret, purposes lost and rediscovered.
May 29, 2009
As in their finest work, the Pixar filmmakers have created thrilling cinema simply by rifling through its history.
May 29, 2009
It feels nervy and adventurous and a little messy, the result of formidable creators and genuine wits working on an enormous budget, enormously well-spent.
May 28, 2009
All filmmakers protesting that they only spoon feed kids the crap they crave, I present to you Pixar's two recent stars: a silent robot and a geriatric widower.
