Coco (PG)

Coco (PG)

Animation, Adventure, Comedy

Aspiring musician Miguel, confronted with his family's ancestral ban on music, enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer.

The critical consensus

Pixar has raised the animation bar again, with its most musical — and arguably most magical — film yet. If this is the afterlife we’re all headed to, don’t fear the reaper.

*****Helen O'Hara, Empire Online, 12/01/2018

It may lack the ingenuity of their finest outings, but this is Pixar’s best film in ages. Visually splendid, frequently emotional and culturally nourishing.

****(*)Jordan Farley, Total Film, 15/01/2018

Gorgeous, heartfelt animation from Pixar, resplendent in its love for Mexican traditions.

****(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 15/01/2018

Not top-tier Pixar. But decent enough.

***(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 16/01/2018

Deals with death and memory in a way that is both graceful and profound.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 17/01/2018

This is a charming and very memorable film.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 18/01/2018

A sumptuous, expressively animated film, as dazzling as fireworks.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 19/01/2018

It’s certainly a substantial improvement on recent misfires like The Good Dinosaur and last year’s barrel-scraping Cars 3.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 19/01/2018

An aspiring musician looks for his ancestor in the Land of the Dead in a Pixar film that makes light work of complex ideas.
