The vast majority of the universe has, more than likely seen Finding Nemo since its initial release in 2003. With the voice talents of Albert Brooks, Elle DeGeneres and Willem Defoe and a handful of accolades to add to Disney Pixar’s collection, including 2004’s Best Animated Feature Oscar, this film is already a classic, up there with Cinderella and The Lion King, among many, many others.
The story follows Marlin, an over-protective, nervous clown fish as he tries to find his young son, Nemo, after he is captured in the Great Barrier Reef. Accompanying Marlin on his journey is the very forgetful and slightly demented, but endearing Dory who ensures that this rescue mission is an utterly forgetful one. There are also vegetarian sharks, ancient sea turtles that have smoked one too many doobies and potentially the most terrifying seagulls ever to have graced the silver screen.
The effects are just what you would expect from the Disney Pixar dream team and they are made all the more magnificent in 3D. The vast array of colours on screen is just phenomenal, transporting both adults and children alike to another world, one I’m sure we all wish we could be a part of, especially if there are talking fish (it could be true!) The characters are all entirely lovable in their own way, moving audiences to both laugh and cry, especially with the character of Dory who should probably be locked up. As with many films of this genre and with many released in more recent years, humour has been instrumental in ensuring films such as Finding Nemo are never forgotten and it is characters like Dory that prove laughter can never go out of style.
For those very few people who have yet to see this fantastic film then please, sprint to your nearest cinema, grab a hot dog, popcorn – whatever, take a pew and just take in utter perfection. If you have already had the pleasure of catching Nemo then see it again in 3D because the world you thought you knew and couldn’t get any better just did.
Finding Nemo 3D is released in UK cinemas Friday 29th March.]]>
