Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Pixar continued its run of superb computer-generated animated features with this jaw-dropping underwater adventure. It's a rainbow-hued delight, overflowing with innovation and vitality. Australia's Great Barrier Reef provides a stunning starting point for this aquatic fable, as single-parent clownfish Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) sees his beloved only son, Nemo, netted by a scuba diver. From then on, it's a nonstop journey of visual excitement and wonder, as the distraught father sets off to rescue his offspring, encountering a host of colourful characters along the way. As is mandatory for a family film, there are plenty of life lessons for youngsters to learn, but they come agreeably sugar-coated with humour and fun. Meanwhile, a more adult undercurrent offers grown-up laughs, and there's even some old-fashioned tear-jerking to complete the emotional rollercoaster ride. The voice casting is inspired too, with Ellen DeGeneres, Willem Dafoe, Geoffrey Rush and Eric Bana among those contributing supplementary texture to a marvellous sensory experience.
