Finding Dory

Finding Nemo was such a wonderful hit that a sequel was inevitable, but who knew it would take more than a decade to reach the big screen? This time, Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), the forgetful blue tang fish, enlists the help of her friends Nemo (Hayden Rolence) and Marlin (Albert Brooks) to find her parents, who she lost as a youngster. Pixar knows how to toy with the emotions of its audience and co-director/co-writer Andrew Stanton has done it again with some sweet, poignant moments about the importance of family. Unfortunately, the film is not quite as charming as its predecessor and feels awfully repetitive. There just was not enough substance to sustain the 95-minute running time. Nonetheless, children should still delight in the bright colours and amusing characters, including grumpy “septopus” Hank (Ed O'Neill), Bailey (Ty Burrell) the beluga with sonar problems, and whale shark Destiny (Kaitlin Olson) who is constantly bumping into walls. A pair of territorial sea lions, voiced by Idris Elba and Dominic West, are also funny, but perhaps the best running gag involves Sigourney Weaver. Finding Dory is good, but with such a long wait, one would have thought the time could have been taken to make it a great film.

  1. I haven't seen it yet but it definitely won't miss me. I can't forget Finding Nemo and it took them damn long to produce the sequel
