Animation has such an important job. The messages I was talking about earlier are not just intended to teach kids things – we learn from them too. I think that’s what made ‘Onward’ a little disappointing: I didn’t come out having learned something new in the context of my adult life. Nonetheless, it’s still a lovely allegorical tale that promotes brotherhood, adventure and generosity. Animation’s got a big duty of shaping up future generations from a young age, and they can’t always deliver the goods for all. With that, I sign off – eagerly awaiting Pixar’s next drop where, fingers crossed, I get to discover something new too… don’t forget the big kids, Pixar.

Unicorns, pixies, elves, and wizards have lost the magic of the past in “Onward,” a formulaic animated adventure from Pixar. Set in a suburban world of fantasy, the film tells the story of two teenage brothers who embark on a quest to find a magic gem that could hold the key to a little familial enchantment.
Ian (Tom Holland) and his older brother Barley (Chris Pratt) are still mourning the death of their father several years ago. Ian was just a baby when he died, and Barley barely has any memories of his dad. When mom (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) gives Ian a gift that his departed pop left for his 16th birthday, it turns out to be a wizard’s staff with instructions for a visitation spell that can bring the patriarch back for one day only. Something goes wrong, and the two siblings must set out on a danger-filled journey to find the missing piece of the puzzle before the sun sets.
Onscreen adventures are supposed to be exciting, but this one is considerably dull. The story feels very personal yet unfortunately sanitized for broader audience appeal. It works best when the story leans on the theme of reconnecting with your family, especially as the two brothers use their road trip as a way to bond over their differing ways of dealing with grief and regret. It’s poignant, and the film’s sincerity is a heartwarming reminder that we shouldn’t waste what precious time we have left.
The movie has a weird “Weekend at Bernie’s” vibe as the two teens drive around in a rock n’ roll van with the bottom half of their reanimated dad in tow. It’s not very funny, and the heavy themes of loss and the meaning of family will likely resonate with those who’ve lost a loved one and still yearn for one more day. It’s a strange film with and unsatisfying ending that doesn’t really pay off.
“Onward” doesn’t make the most of its solid premise, which is a real shame. The plot is repetitive and predictable; the story sentimental and drawn out. It’s one of the weakest films in the Pixar catalog, but it does meet the studio’s basic checklist for acceptable quality (great animation, good voice performances, mediocre story). It could benefit from a little extra sprinkling of magic.
I very much enjoyed this movie
WOW, Pixar is really moving onward with creativity and originality. While the story itself and plotting may suffer a few issues like predictibility at times, amazing animation and stunning visuals, along with beautifully designed characters and great chemistry beetween actors who voiced those characters perfectly, make this movie great, enjoyable and worth watching. The way they’ve used a mixture of real life elements and fantasy elements from Dungeons and Dragons universe is also great and worth mentioning. While, at first look it doesn’t feel like a Pixar movie, the more time you spend watching it, you will get all feelings and heart you expect from your average Pixar movie. Dan Scanlon did a great job this time.
Extremely underrated emotional road trip – Onward
This movie will give you laughs as well as leave you in sobs. Fun, action-packed and emotional, it’s a great watch.
Elven brothers Ian and Barley lost their father when they were too young to remember him. But on Ian’s 16th birthday, they receive a special gift – something that can help revive their father for one day. But as expected, they mess up the spell and their father is left only with legs.
I do not know why this film is so underrated, considering it’s full of that Pixar magic. Fantasy world? Ok, that’s pretty common. Suburban fantasy world? You don’t see that every day. It’s a burst of imagination, really.
Unlike most films that shy away from deep themes and stay on the ‘clear path’, Onward shows how hard it is to lose someone. If you haven’t seen it, watch today!
