A delightful undersea world unfolds in Pixar's animated adventure Finding Nemo. When his son Nemo is captured by a scuba diver, a nervous clownfish named Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) sets off into the vast--and astonishingly detailed--ocean to find him. Along the way he hooks up with a scatterbrained blue tang fish named Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), who's both a help and a hindrance, sometimes at the same time. Faced with sharks, deep-sea anglers, fields of poisonous jellyfish, sea turtles, pelicans and much more, Marlin rises above his neuroses in this wonderfully... funny and thrilling ride--rarely do more than 10 minutes pass without a sequence appearing that's destined to become a theme-park attraction. Pixar continues its run of impeccable artistic and economic successes (Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Monsters, Inc). Supporting voices here include Willem Dafoe, Geoffrey Rush and Allison Janney. --Bret Fetzer [show more]
This fish's tale follows the character Marlin who is voiced by Albert Brooks, a clownfish who's afraid to let his vulnerable son, Nemo (played by Alexander Gould), out of his sight in case he is gobbled up by one of the Great Barrier Reef's many, many predators. This is following a tragic death of his wife who is brutally murdered by a barracuda which is displayed at the beginning of the film to give the audience understanding of Marlins behaviour. The inevitable then proceeds to happens later on in the film when Nemo is netted by a diver and whisked away from his ocean home. The distraught Marlin immediately goes in pursuit of the divers hoping and praying to get his son back,this however is a great challenge for a small fish in a big world so he reluctantly enlists the help of Dory (Voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), a fish who suffers from short-term memory loss and can become very annoying at times as you will witness throughout the film..., all in all this film was great and would be a definite recommendatory to go and see when you get the chance, it does not, however, live up to the standards that Toy Story set, but then again, what animated film does?
A fun, exciting, heart touching animation based on a father and son relationship. But this relationship is of two clown fish that live at the bottom of the ocean. A colourful and hilarious adventure that follows the journey of Nemo and his forgetful friend Dory.
The story draws on all aspects of the imagination, especially for the young. For all ages, this Disney animation is perfect for the adults and the little ones, who will enjoy the epic journey of fun, thrill and will even occasionally frighten (the vegetarian sharks).
This film is not too long, so the kids won't get bored and the amazing scenery in every shot will keep everyone intrigued and wound up in the excitement and worry of the weak finned fish Nemo.
The whole film pretty much turns your living room into a virtual aquarium, where laughter and sympathy evolve as the story follows through with wonderful detail and superb direction by Andrew Stanton.
Overall beauty and brilliance. A must-see family fun film.
good for the whole family... my 2 year old knows all about fish now and watches nature programs all the time as a result
This is one of the best animated films in a long time, appeals to adults and children. Thoroughly enjoyable and funny.
A wonderful film that the whole family will enjoy.
The animation in Finding Nemo is outstanding, especially that of the underwater environment that is the centre stage for the film.
The story is well written, and the film is isn't so long that children will become bored.
Very young children may be scared by the sharks - be warned !
