I wasn’t going to miss this movie for the world! As a kid, I had watched Finding Nemo over and over. So when I heard that, after what seemed like ages (13 years to be accurate), they were releasing Finding Dory, the 8 year old in me kind of let out a shriek.
I liked how they had flashback snippets from Finding Nemo, As far as the quality of the movie goes, it is pretty entertaining, funny, cute, most certainly holds your attention and keeps you curious. It has its humour, mystery and climax just where they should have been. This movie was a much-needed sequel and it sort of completed the story. Apart from giving the audience an insight into Dory’s past, and her quest for finding her parents (which is the basic story line), it helps make sense of how she met Marlin (Nemo’s father).
Needless to say, amazing work on the animation and graphics.
I am a fan of Ellen DeGeneres, but I assure you I’m not being biased when I say that she did an awesome job at being Dory. I also like Ty Burrell and Ed O’Neil, A LOT (Modern Family reasons), but it has nothing to do with the fact that they did a pretty great job at being Bailey’s and Hank’s voice. Hayden Rolence (Nemo) and Albert Brooks (Marlin) did a fab job, as well.
Everybody who has watched Finding Nemo as a child MUST watch Finding Dory. If nothing else, it’ll be a great walk down the memory lane. Dear siblings and parents, please take your younger ones to watch this movie, these are the kind of things that make up childhood. It is recommended that you watch Finding Nemo before you head for this movie otherwise some parts of the it will not make proper sense.
I would give this movie 4.5 fins out of 5. Keep swimming!
