Good, not great.
17 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Coco is about a family that was defined by a moment in their history. We follow Miguel, a young boy who aspires to be something that his family is against. This movie was directed by Lee Unkrich and is a original movie presented by Disney and developed by Pixar, this means that you can expect great animation, music and at least decent writing. Lee Unkrich has co-directed a lot of Pixar classics like Finding Nemo (2003) and Monsters, Inc (2001), neither of them perfected but deservedly have the pronoun of classics. Other than being co-director, he also directed Toy Story 3 (2010), which in my opinion is a bit underwhelming, I would never call it a bad movie, because it has the same production quality as the other Toy Story movies, but I believe it has a lot of problems in its script and story, not gonna delve to deep about, just have in mind that I didn't love it, and would consider it a decent movie, not good. Coco follows a lot of plot lines and ideas from other movies, but I wouldn't consider it a down for this movie in terms of quality, just makes it less original and more of a retread of another movies like The Book of Life (2014). Unfortunately this isn't the big problem of Coco. The big problem of Coco it's mediocrity when it comes to the script and the finality of the ideas, not only it is incredibly obvious where the story goes, it also does unnecessary plot twists that are obvious and lack of sense, which I won't spoil for obvious reasons, and because of this the emotional scenes are less effective at least when it comes to the story, because the score is so effective and well made, most people melt and forget the inconsistencies of the story, which didn't work for me, mostly because I am not a target audience of this movie, being in my twenties and having no children. Other problem I had is that the story had a big potential which fell through, by going through obvious and overdone paths, basically it decided to end as a perfect knot instead of a little more realist. With this point I meant to show why I didn't think the story and script are tight and perfect. Other than this problems it follows the great productions of other Pixar/Disney collaborations, having great music and animation with little and complex details, so I would recommend this movie as a fun movie for the whole family, but don't expect, at least if you are like me, a masterpiece. I would rate it a 6-7/10.
