TOUCHING MOMENTS, LOTS OF ACTION

Magnet High School.
“Finding Nemo” is the latest computer-animated film to hit movie
theaters from Disney/Pixar. The movie is about an overprotective
clownfish, Marlin, and the extreme lengths he ventures to rescue his
abducted son, Nemo. Along the way, Marlin comes across many zany
characters, ranging from the forgetful Dory, who accompanies him
through the whole quest, to surfer-like Crush, the sea turtle. The
movie takes place in the Great Barrier Reef and is full of amazing
and lifelike scenery.
I really liked this movie. It had just the right amount of
heart-touching moments, but was balanced by action and a lot of humor
as well. Children will enjoy watching all the different and colorful
fish and the predicaments Marlin and Dory get into on their rescue
Everyone can relate to the movie through either the bonds of
parenthood or more commonly those of friendship and trust. Parents
will probably enjoy all the remarkable backgrounds and will be able
to relate to Marlin and his ordeal. Teenagers like myself, will also
be satisfied with the wide range of entertainment the movie has to
offer. “Finding Nemo” is a nonstop, underwater adventure that will
succeed in delivering enjoyment to all.
BACKGROUNDS ARE VERY REALISTIC

Disney’s newest animated film, “Finding Nemo,” is about a young
clownfish, Nemo, who gets caught by a diver and ends up in a mean
dentist’s aquarium tank. Nemo’s father, Marlin, and his new forgetful
friend, Dory, go on an exciting journey to find Nemo.
I really liked this movie. It was much more than I had expected.
It had its funny and sad moments, just to please everyone. The bright
colors of the fish and the backgrounds were very well done and very
realistic. It felt like I was actually with Marlin traveling across
the ocean and trying to find Nemo.
My favorite parts were when Marlin and Dory came across the three
sharks and many of the other sea creatures throughout the movie. This
movie is very emotional, yet fun.
Overall, on a scale of one to 10, I would give it a 10. I would
strongly recommend “Finding Nemo” to any family with children who
wants to have a few laughs, and also gain a valuable lesson, which is
no matter how hard you try to protect your children, someday they all
have to grow up.
“Finding Nemo” is rated G.
