Elemental (2023) review:very cute, take the kids to see it


Recently, I haven’t been a fan of many Pixar films, feeling they’ve lacked emotion and depth. However, Elemental (2023) changed my tune, providing both humor and genuine sentiment. The soundtrack enhanced my enjoyment, making it an all-around delightful experience. This film has rekindled my love for Pixar.

While Elemental(2023)follows a familiar, unoriginal narrative of opposites attracting and the challenges they face from their families and communities, it still offers a fresh take in its execution. The animation is outstanding, ranking among the best of Pixar’s recent work.

At first glance, Elemental(2023) shares similarities with Zootopia (2016) in its unique world-building and social commentary on immigration and multiculturalism. The character designs and animation are impressive; however, they don’t quite reach the “wow factor” of earlier Pixar films like Inside Out (2015).

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed watching Elemental(2023) and will certainly revisit it if it becomes available on Disney+. I highly recommend that animation enthusiasts experience this film on the big screen for the best viewing pleasure. It’s a light, family-friendly movie that flows seamlessly, touching on relevant themes without getting too heavy-handed. While it may not be the movie of the year, it’s undeniably an adorable film that kids will love. Don’t hesitate to take the whole family for a heartwarming and entertaining outing.
