Coco Review

Coco is the latest animated adventure produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney. The idea for this movie comes from the Mexican holiday Day of the dead. The film’s voice cast stars Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal & Benjamin Bratt who really do an excellent job making this one a gripping, emotion and very entertaining movie that also has a feel good sound track that will go down well with audiences both young and old alike.Coco is the tale of a young Mexican child named Miguel who has grown up in a family who have banned him from music as they want Miguel to continue in the family business of shoe making. Coco has always dreamed of following in the footsteps of his musical hero Ernesto de la Cruz. After stealing the guitar of his hero Coco becomes invisible to everyone in the village. The only people that can see Coco are his dead relatives. Coco quickly finds out that he has been cursed for stealing the guitar and must find his way out of the land of the dead before sunrise or remain there forever.Movie goers will be treated to a wide spectrum of emotions in this one as it is both funny and sad and everything in between. Pixar really did do a good job putting this all together and have ended up with a well-polished finished product that is sure to entertain.

Rating 4/5
