Pixar finally comes back to creating original stories, of which they are best at. As an older brother myself this film seems to hit the right places and give me the feels. This film is very entertaining and never boring. It can also be viewed a second time to pull apart the many deep themes and messages within it. Though not the best Pixar movie, it deserves to be seen.

I loved this movie!!! I cried 4 times but jokes were so good they had me laughing while still teary eyes. the story is so fantastic the concept is cool but the story really delivers as an older sibling I could relate to both characters so emotional and action packed i was on the edge of my seat gasping and shocked at times my 14 years old brother loved it as well our new favorite movie

To me actually, I wouldn’t call this movie was a “great” but it was quite good. And I liked the part when Ian slowly realized that Barley was there for him all along to cheer him up even though Ian never got to be with his dad.

I begrudgingly took my six year old to see this because he's been begging for days. I was honestly not looking forward to it and had very low expectations. I was pleasantly surprised at the story line and the humor. This movie wrapped up with a more real-life ending than some but had a great time throughout. I would definitely recommend this movie.

Another amazingly magical and mesmerizing story! I can never get bored from the stories that come from Pixar, and this one was just phenomenal, enchanting, and totally different than what I expected. Pixar never stops blowing my mind, I can’t wait to see what they do with Soul.

Not exactly Pixar's best. But it's not its worst either. It's somewhere between Inside Out and Good Dinosaur.

not my favorite Pixar film and while the film has a lot of cool concepts and good character moments, it has some flaws and odd storytelling quirks and cliches I disliked. I'm glad I saw it and it's fun for families but not Pixar's best or most imaginative.

Great movie and tugged at your heartstrings. My only issue is that it was stretched out and not enough side characters. I also hated the Simpson's short!

I’m grading this on a curve based on previous Pixar movies. Was the movie good? Yes! Was it one of the better Pixar/Disney animated movies? No! Kids loved it but I was disappointed with a few things. One being there was no musical numbers or musical hooks that you left thinking about. It was kind of bland. I also wanted more of the pet dragon. Story was heart touching. But overall, just not the best.

Onward’s ups and downs suggest these probably are less magical times at Pixar. But that doesn’t mean with enough hard work or concentration — or maybe just following your gut — that the magic can’t come back, if only for a little while.

It lacks infectious magic. Any promise of originality fueled early on by the amusing sight of unicorns sniffing through suburban trash quickly dissipates as the siblings' journey gets under way, their progress marked by slapstick gags, predictable close shaves, encounters with characters that often feel like plot padding and standard life lessons writ large.

Feb 21, 2020

Burdened with a drab quest narrative and populated by sweet but unmemorable characters, the studio’s 22nd feature still delivers glorious animation and the occasional tear-jerking sequence. But whether it’s the pedestrian design of this mythical realm or the simplistic story of squabbling brothers in search of their long-lost father, Onward never feels like much of an advancement.
