Disney's UP 3D Movie Review
The most anticipated 3D movie of the year is here. Join Carl and Russell as they travel up, UP and away in Disney’s UP!
Carl and his wife Ellie sought adventure their entire lives. They planned to follow their idol —an adventurer named Charles Muntz—to Paradise Falls in South America. But broken roofs and popped tires made it impossible to save enough money. And before they could embark on their life-long dream, Ellie passed away.
Ellie’s death turned Carl into a miserable old man. Apartments are being built in his neighborhood and Carl refuses to turn his home—Carl and Ellie’s former clubhouse —over to the development project. But after hurting one of the contractors for damaging his mailbox, the court decides to send Carl to a retirement home. Fortunately, Carl has a plan. And it might just lead to his greatest adventure yet.
Carl inflates enough helium balloons to rip his home from its foundation and carry it up, UP and away! As he sails through the sky, enjoying his freedom and dreaming about adventure, he hears an impossible sound: someone is knocking on the front door. On his front porch, he finds Russell, a young wilderness explorer, clinging to the railing. Reluctantly, Carl invites Russell inside and the two of them battle a fierce storm on their way to South America.
Adventure in Paradise Falls
When they arrive at Paradise Falls, they meet a few unexpected friends: a giant colorful bird that Russell names Kevin, and a talking dog named Dug. Together the four of them try to escape Dug’s greedy master who has devoted his life to capturing Kevin. Soon Carl must decide where his loyalties lay; will he protect Kevin from Dug’s miserable master or will he save his home full of memories? Find out by watching Disney’s UP in 3D.
The Bottom Line
Disney’s UP is a colorful masterpiece. The characters are brave, determined and hilarious, providing humor for all ages. But don’t worry about catching this flick in 3D. There wasn’t a lot of eye-popping action, and it would have been just as good, if not better, on a regular screen.
