Finding Dory: Movie Review

By: Matt Suzara

Set one year after the first film, Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), who is still suffering from a short-term memory loss, suddenly remembered that she has a family which she got separated from when she was a little girl. She enlists help with her loyal friends Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) and his son Nemo (voiced by Hayden Rolence) to travel to the California coastline and find them. Their adventure leads them to the Marine Life Institute, where-in memories from the past slowly makes her remember things about her mom and dad.   

After 13 years of the release of Finding Nemo, Pixar is back with maybe an unnecessary sequel in Finding Dory. Its predecessor really doesn't need a part two but if there is any studio that can make a good story out of it - well the great minds on Pixar will definitely answer that for you. It is such a delight to see our beloved characters back in a whole new adventure under the sea, and they all make sure that everything delightfully entertaining once you find your comfort seat inside the cinema. 

The film introduces us to fresh new characters that are easy to love. They are all charming and a colorful addition to make the entire film more fun to watch. It also doesn't run out with gags, wherein youngster and kids at heart can easily relate to. As for the story, it is another vibrant escapade and the same thing that made the popular predecessor a classic with lively animation and gorgeous visuals throughout.  They may have done a bit too much with its finale but with Dory still having that short term memory loss, we might as well forget that since it is an animated film where everything is possible.

The joyful voice of Ellen DeGeneres is the heart and soul of this film. She simply had that ability to make Dory so likable and a terrific job in lending her voice in bringing life to the animated blue tang. Her supporting cast also serves as an energy booster to the picture with the like of Albert Brooks, Ed O'Neill, Ty Burrell and Kaitlin Olson making a huge impact and a tremendous effort.

Overall, Finding Dory may not surpass the greatness of its predecessor, but it assures you to experience the same level of entertainment you felt when you watched the first one. It has a complete package that will surely leave a smile on your faces when you leave the cinema. It is a perfect treat for the whole family and another masterpiece from the brilliant people from Pixar.
