Average, the movie has its moments, but the story is chiché and predictable.
26 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

I really liked to love Coco a little more, however it's pretty obvious that Pixar as a creative flair for histories that feed the imagination of adults and children seems like it's not the same anymore. Coco has the story as any animated film. Young has talent, but prevented by the family from pursuing such a dream, the story is chiche and can be perceived from miles away and anyone can guess the unfolding of the story throughout the film. Stories were Pixar's strengths, they were simple for kids to understand, but interesting for adults to watch and have fun. In other words, the stories could serve both age groups. Coco has such a chiché and predictable history that it hardly needs other visualizations. Well, just seeing the movie once is more than enough. Still, the characters are interestingly written, I particularly like Hector, and the interactions with Miguel are excellent, Ernesto de la Cruz is the typical usurper of the animated films that has existed for decades. But still Pixar was professional enough to maintain interest in this drama between Ernesto de la Cruz and Hector, despite the chiche story between these two, it was well held the relations between them during the scenes of the film.
