"I agree with Paul in that this is definitelly below standard Pixar. I do not understand all the hype about it when it came right after "Wall-E" which is a true masterpiece and should have been enough to make good a comparison. These are two very different films, surely, but when Wall-E had magic and moments of pure brilliance, "Up" can only give provide with a vague sense of nostalgia for the life of the protagonist. the premise is strong enough i.e. The will to make dreams and promises come true even after someone's death...but once the baloons have taken off the film goes into B-series territory with no purpose, barren and simplistic. Shame on you Disney"
