From the revolutionary minds of Pixar Animation Studios and the acclaimed director of Monsters, Inc. comes a hilariously uplifting adventure where the sky is no longer the limit. Carl Fredricksen, a retired balloon salesman is part rascal, part dreamer who is ready for his last chance at high-flying excitement. Tying thousands of balloons to his house, Carl sets off to the lost world of his childhood dreams. Unbeknownst to Carl, Russell, an overeager 8-year old Wilderness Explorer who has never ventured beyond his backyard, is in the wrong place at the wrong time – Carl's front porch! The world's most unlikely duo reaches new heights and meets fantastic friends like Dug, a dog with a special collar that allows him to speak, and Kevin, the rare 13-foot tall flightless bird. Stuck together in the wilds of the jungle, Carl realizes that sometimes life's biggest adventures aren't the ones you set out looking for. UP reaches new heights and it's an adventure that will send your spirits soaring!
. Carl Fredricksen spent his entire life dreaming of exploring the globe and experiencing life to its fullest. But at age 78, life seems to have passed him by, until a twist of fate (and a persistent 8-year old Wilderness Explorer named Russell) gives him a new lease on life.. Up Wiki
Before I start I just wanna say I haven’t watch this movie in a long time so I can’t remember the names sorry. The old man actually passed away in his sleep before he was supposed to go to the retirement home. The young little boy is actually his guardian angel. The house on balloons shows the old mans high spirits. If you want to know more about this movie as well as other Pixar ivies pease check out, one of my favourite YouTubers, Matthew Santoro. Just type in Matthew Santoro and Pixar Conspiracies. Thank you for reading 😊
Best movie of all times it’s Disney !
Every time I watch Up it always makes me cry. It’s such a good movie!
Really great movie! The first 10 minutes are pretty sad and almost made me cry a bit (the reason why this was so sad is because of the justice held upon the characters. None of them did some that bad, yet they still got a punishment). And woah! This is so unreal, but somehow the moral is really real to young and older audiences alike! Very good movie. Recommended! WATCH IT NOW AND STOP LOOKING AT THE REVIEWS!!!!!
Sweet poignant movie with themes for both kids and adults
This is my favorite movie of all time. I always watched it when I was young, and I found it here. Loved it, 5 stars.
Not bad. But definitely not good either
This is the one Pixar/Disney movie that I don't understand the rave reviews. The trailer looked funny but most of the movie was just sad and depressing. The comedic reliefs of Dug, Russel, and Kevin combined aren't enough to balance the grumpiness and sadness of Carl and the memories of his late wife. So depressing. Never watching this again. I do love Dug though, so I'll watch the compilation of his scenes on YouTube.
Disney and Pixar have truly outdone themselves with this movie. It will tug on your heartstrings and give you plenty to laugh about. The animation is stellar and the characters are wonderfully larger than life. An absolute classic.
I love the movie but I have seen it sooooo many times it got kinda boring
If i rent this movie how long is it going to rented for?
I liked the premise but it got lost in the jungle. Terrifying house burning scene was too much for my kids...shoulda looked it up on kids-in-mind site first...
I rented this movie on iTunes and it wont let me play it. It wont even show the picture! I love the movie but not the download
Be prepared - this is not your typical animated movie, but then what Pixar film ever is? I would rank Up as Pixar's masterpiece, hitherto unmatched in terms of narrative complexity, character richness, heartwarming (and heartbreaking) story telling and just plain fun. There is something in this film for everyone be you a dog lover, enjoy the golden years of your life or a youngster. Where many live action movies try (and fail in most cases) to move the audience by the end of the film, Up achieves this through a silent montage in the first 10 minutes of the film. After that who wouldn't be hooked? Pixar proves that good movies are not about how much was spent on SFX but rather that a solid story line wins out in drawing droves of spectators every single single time. Watch this movie with someone you care deeply about and bring some tissue just in case.
Poignant! And seriously LAUGH OUT LOUD Funny!!!!!!!! Excellent computer graphics. A Winner! Will keep you on your toes. What a fabulous film in every way!
This movie was just a piece of garbage. The action scenes were lame and the whole thing was too disgusting.
Though some may pan this movie for being "way too sad", having "too strange a plot", or "not being enough like other Pixar movies", disregard their statements. Up has such a uniquely captivating plot that you're instantly intrigued with the movie's premise, and the characters have such deep, rich backstories (as do all of Pete Docter's creations) that you feel as if you've known them for many years. The visuals are (in my opinion) some of the best that Pixar has ever done, and the soundtrack is extremely fitting for the movie. Yes, the beginning is sad, but only to set the movie in motion and establish a sense of context as to why Carl behaves the way he does. Along with Finding Nemo, Up is (in my opinion) the best movie from the best movie studio. I always like Docter as a director, and the similarities between the uniqueness of plot in Monsters Inc. and this movie are quite apparent. This is a very touching movie that still manages to keep you on the edge of your seat.
This movie was good. The soundtrack was good. So is the movie. Good job Pixar and Disney!
I love this film. Dug the dog is so hilarious (Winner of Funniest Animated Character, 2009). It's not Pixar's best work since the story is kind of weak, but it makes up with nice animation and very good characters. My #12 Pixar film. I give Up! a 8.5/10
Definitely worth watching. It wasn't overly amazing but it's a really heart warming story and a great watch
A great animated film to own and watch. Great storyline and great set of events in the film. One of the best Disney/Pixar movies of all time. Excellent. Brilliant. :)
Touching, funny, clever, wonderfully animated are just some of things about this movie. I cried watching it the first time and while i didn't the 3rd time it was still a brilliant film. The characters are original with an engaging story line. Pug, the dog, is a awesome character that is both honest but funny. The bird, Kevin, is amusing too. It's a different love stroy and a very different adventure. It's nice to watch something that isn't the same old disney movie. This, with Inside Out, is the best of Pixar and Disney combined. WATCH IT! :)
Definitely my favourite disney movie! It's so cute and funny, a movie not just for the kids all adults should watch it too!
They call me Russell because I look like him. It's my favourite movie buy it iff you have the money.
Made me laugh so hard LOL
Hey! iTunes what gives? You've got this one at $14.99 on SD but it's $24.99 a whopping $10 more in High Def!!! Unfair!!! Buy the BlueRay instead !!!! You get SD and HD for the same price.
First toy story now this?! Pixar are pure genius. I cried so much in this film it was so moving! :'( and yet so funny in parts aswell!
Kids will love the funny characters and jokes and older people will love the deeper story of a man trying to follow his wife's dream.
All of you who hated it are worse than critics! Could you just keep it to yourself?!you're depresing me!
I think it was rubbish including the story it was pointless and he should have sold the house for double price and gone lived at the other place
cute and sad :)
Great movie for kids, come on, what a simple story line. He finds a bird, he saves the bird, THE END. Nevertheless lots of funny moments. Good for kids under 10, after that if u watch it on your own then you have too much time on your hands; worth renting. 6.5/10 - The film lacked another twist .
Hated this film i thought it was absolute overrated trash including the story line. The old man is a needy old git and don't even get me started on the little chinese boy scout who is infectiously annoying to the point where you want him to fall out of the house and the talking dogs are just not funny but stereotypically stupid and damn right annoying!
but I went to see this at the cinema and was very funny with a great story line.
My 5 year old son absolutely loves this film - he keeps watching it over and over again. It is one for the whole family.
A very thoughtful film. It gets the message across without alot of words. Very original story.
This movie great from start to finish. Very touching moments throughout the movie and hilariously funny. Defiantly on my top 5 best movies ever (p.s it's #4 in the list)
Awesome, very enjoyable, fantastic graphics, very human story, and funny, one of the best films I have seen in a long time.
Totaly awesome movie, VERY well done, lots of colour, laugher and very touching 5 stars! ;) a very enjoyible movie. x
I went into watching this film thinking it was going to be complete Disney fueled spew but in fact I was blown away. I've always been a fan of Pixar and Dreamworks, this is by far their greatest creation! The storyline is magnificient and very inventive. Perhaps a reason for my liking of the film was the continually wonderful vibrant colour. The characters are all very unique, each of them all having special quirks to set them apart from a lot of the 'usual' childish garbage (Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel is a prime example if what I mean). Overall, in my opinion this film is a complete visual delight with an amazing storyline, plenty of comedy and the best animation I've ever seen. Would definitely recommend to all children, people my age (14), adults, grandparents, baby foetus', just anybody who wants something hilarious.
Thought this movie looked great from the trailer..... It was even better! loved the movie. recommend to anyone the loves animations or kids movies or even just comedy all together
I was expecting another cheap kids movie with no thought put into it. But i was very surprised, it was funny, entertaining and sad.
After reading in the paper that UP was given 5 stars I went along with high expectations. Although I found it slightly boring. But reading all the other reviews here maybe I just wasnt in the mood to watch a movie. I am usually a big fan of animated movies and having a younger sister i see a lot!! So i am giving UP 3 stars, I will be watching it again to see what I think.
Begins with one of the most touching opening sequences you're ever likely to see, this sets the tone for the emotional resonance of the film. Funny in places and enjoyable throughout I was pleasantly surprised to find that this lived up to the hype. Very worthy of its Golden Globe.
