Film Review: Monsters University 3D

File:Monsters university logo.jpg

Monsters University is a film full of humour, surprises and action that will entertain both adults and children alike. The prequel to Monsters Inc., the film follows the story of how Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) decides to become a scarer and how he forms an unlikely friendship with James P. Sullivan (John Goodman).

Another fantastic 3D film from Disney Pixar, it adds to the original movie as you begin to understand more about the characters from Monsters Inc., like why Randall (Steve Buscemi) has such a chip on his shoulder. You are also introduced to a whole host of new monsters, such as the cute Scott ‘Squishy’ Squibbles (Peter Sohn) and the funny acrobatic Art (Charlie Day).

The best part about the film is the way it grabs the children’s attention and keeps them enthralled for the entire film even though, at 110 minutes, I would consider it quite long for a children’s movie. The film has plenty of surprises and little life lessons along the way, and there are a couple of scary moments, with Dean Hardscrabble (Helen Mirren) definitely a monster of nightmarish proportions.

Similar to Monsters Inc., Monsters University has humour for both adults and children with laugh out loud moments. Disney Pixar films are a huge success among parents and children alike and this prequel does not disappoint.

Monsters University will be released In Ireland on July 12th and has already had huge success in the US. It’s a film that you will watch over and over again and is sure to be a big hit with kids during their summer holidays!
