Onward Movie Review :
When it comes to the announcement of a new release from Pixar, it's pretty safe to say that it's easy to become ecstatic. Over the years, the studio has consistently proven itself to be true masters of blending mind-blowingly beautiful animation and equally brilliant storytelling. So, needless to say, like most Pixar fans, I was beyond excited to see ONWARD. So, was it worth the wait?

To be honest, it's tough not to compare ONWARD to the studio's earlier works. While this film does contain many elements that have made the studio what they are, including sublime animation and character designs, as well as some wonderfully creative ideas and humor - for me, the overall package was rather tame and somewhat uninspired - something I didn't think I would say about a Pixar film.

My biggest criticism is that there were so many underdeveloped ideas that felt as if the writers had been constantly juggling them, and like kids playing in a giant sandbox, eventually just threw those ideas aside, leaving several characters' arcs unfulfilled (Julia Louis-Dreyfuss was definitely terrific, but seriously underused) and the potential for a much bigger emotional and thematic punch felt brushed aside. While ONWARD does carry a few moments of genuinely quiet power, those moments are often overshadowed by the film's constantly manic tone. The concept of Ian and Barley's "half-conjured" father is pretty hilarious, but it's surprisingly poorly executed here.

Now, don't get me wrong, ONWARD is not a complete disaster. Far from it. I have to admit that there were moments that even my own inner cynic couldn't help but be drawn into this world. As I stated before, the animation is so vivid and beautiful, and there are some genuinely funny moments. Younger kids will surely get a kick out of this colorful world, particularly with the brilliant character designs (I especially loved the giant ears on the elves) and will no doubt have a blast.

The cast here is also put to good use, particularly with Tom Holland as Ian, who is celebrating his 16th birthday when we first meet him, and a showstopping Octavia Spencer as "Manticore." While definitely a great idea for the role of Ian's brother, Barley, Chris Pratt's character felt more like a nuisance than anything else. That may have been the idea, but for me, it was far too over-the-top, and occasionally, downright annoying. Thankfully, that wasn't always the case, and Pratt does manage to give Barley some genuine heart.

Overall, ONWARD can be a pretty fun ride, and as is always the case with Pixar, it's a visual masterpiece. But those expecting a film along the lines of TOY STORY or UP may find themselves feeling a bit underwhelmed
