Finding Nemo 3D

Clownfish Marlin is widowed when a shark kills his wife and all but one of her eggs. Naturally he becomes incredibly protective of his surviving son Nemo, and his entire world falls apart when Nemo is taken by divers. Marlin sets off on an enormous quest down the Great Barrier Reef to Sydney where, unbeknownst to him, Nemo is being kept in a fish tank at a dentist's office.

Finding Nemo is beautiful storytelling. Marlin is a real hero, overcoming all kinds of personal demons to find what is the most important thing to him – his son. While the search might seem like a fun adventure, death, pain and loss are all central themes of this film. This really is a feast for your eyes, with every colourful fish in the sea making an appearance. There are countless familiar voices from Albert Brooks as the film's protagonist and Ellen DeGeneres as his faithful sidekick, to Willem Dafoe, Brad Garrett, Eric Bana and Geoffrey Rush.

It seems as though Pixar can do very little wrong. Finding Nemo 3D is simply spectacular. The colour is fantastic and the 3D really packs a punch. Like always there's a lot for the children, but so much for the adults too. Regardless of age, everyone will enjoy revisiting this experience in a visually sumptuous movie perfect for the 3D upgrade.
