100 Word Review: Up

It seems to me no small irony that films targeting children often leave me emotionally drained. Up is no different. The movie’s first fifteen minutes tugged the heart-strings a plenty and followed that up with talking dogs, aging adventurers, giant birds and a whole lot of balloons. It’s not exactly a rollercoaster ride of ridiculous humour and there’s a clear moment when I felt it crossed the line of believability (yes, this movie had talking dogs and a house elevated by thousands of balloons and I still felt there was a line), but it is a sweet, funny, geriatric adventure.

Adventure is out there!
