Finding Nemo 3D
Ten years after it was first released, Pixar’s hugely entertaining comedy swims back into cinemas in the 3D format – and it is still the cinematic catch of the day…
Eye-popping visuals and a superb script, crammed to the gills with laugh-out-loud gags, combine to stunning effect in this hugely entertaining and wildly inventive fable set beneath the ocean waves. The conversion to 3D has been lovingly overseen by Pixar supremo John Lasseter and the underwater environments look stunning with the added depth of vision. You can almost feel fish swimming around you as the camera glides along coral reefs or sinks into the blue beyond and a forest of deadly jellyfish.
Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) is a neurotic clownfish who has never recovered emotionally from a barracuda attack, which claimed the lives of his wife and all but one of his unborn children. When his one surviving son, Nemo (Alexander Gould), is plucked from the Great Barrier Reef by a diver and re-housed in a fish tank in a dentist’s waiting room, Marlin embarks on an epic adventure to bring the youngster home. The clownfish is aided by a friendly blue tang called Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), who suffers from short-term memory loss, travelling through shark-infested waters to be reunited with his boy. Meanwhile, Nemo hatches a daring escape from the crowded aquarium with the help of the other residents, including a Moorish Idol called Gill (Willem Dafoe), a hygiene-obsessed shrimp called Jacques (Joe Ranft) and a starfish called Peach (Allison Janney).
