Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Coco is Pixar back firing on all cylinders – It’s funny, charming and endearing without being preachy or over the top. In fact I’d say that Coco happily sits towards the top end of Pixar’s considerable cannon. Visually stunning and with top draw voice acting, it’s day of the dead theme (whilst treading similar ground to also very good The Book of Life) provides a rich tapestry for the animators to work with. For my money this should be sitting amongst the crowd of best Motion Picture nominees at this years academy awards.
Best Bit: So THAT”S why it’s called Coco
