Storyline Heading
Set in a suburban fantasy world, two teenage elf brothers embark on a quest to discover if there is still magic out there.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Animated Adventure Comedy - Like all Pixar animated features, this is a comedy aimed at kids and families with a strong dose of emotion and heart that gives it widespread appeal. Tom Holland and Chris Pratt fans will enjoy their lead voice performances, with other familiar names such as Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Octavia Spencer. There are some action sequences that may be intense for very young kids, but on the whole most parents will find this safe viewing for all.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average The pacing is so jarring that the emotional payoff doesn't develop as intended. And the overall irony, of course, is that this is a movie about the need for magic that could have used a little more of the stuff itself. But if it makes you think of your mom and dad fondly, even for a moment, well at least that's something.

USA Today Full Review
Good Dungeons, dragons and tugged heartstrings are on tap in the animated fantasy adventure "Onward," a Pixar movie that doesn't really feel like a Pixar movie. Is it fun? Yep. Does it have big stars? Sure, a pair of them in Marvel superheroes Chris Pratt and Tom Holland. Will it make you cry? Oh, heck yeah.

NY Post Full Review
Very Good The style and tone of writer-director Dan Scanlon's movie has elements of DreamWorks' "Shrek" and "How To Train Your Dragon" mixed with the siblings-with-secrets aspects of Disney's "Frozen." But "Onward" is better for the change-up. That stylistic and narrative departure gives us Pixar's most heartfelt story in years.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average Like the top tier of Pixar (Toy Story, WALL-E, Up, The Incredibles), its latest works best when it uses the modern machinery of animation to evoke the eternal wonder of being human. You'll laugh. You'll cry. But first you have to cut through the noise.

The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 70 moviegoers:
WOW! WHAT REVIEWS! It is extremely rare to see reviews this high for ANY movie, but for an animated kids movie to get these reviews is exceptional. I wasn't planning on seeing it, but I want to see it now.
