Toy Story 3 3D

Toy Story 3 3D

(2010)

Woody, Buzz and all the gang are back for Disney/Pixar's third (and probably final) Toy Story adventure – this time in glorious 3D.... More

The toys are dumped in a daycare centre after their owner, Andy, departs for college. There they meet a bunch of new pals, not including Ken (as in Barbie & Ken). Voiced by Michael Keaton, Ken isn't the simple-minded, fun-loving guy you might imagine but rather a vain narcissist.

This installment is written by Michael Arndt, the scribe of Little Miss Sunshine.Hide

Flicks Review

In 1999, the first Toy Story sequel wowed audiences by expanding upon 1995’s original to become something even more thrilling, funny and involving. Eleven years later, the third, and likely final, instalment caps off a remarkably strong trilogy. With great relief, the much-anticipated Toy Story 3 truly is top-shelf family entertainment.... More

Broad enough to please a wide age-bracket (from current kids to adults who have grown up with the characters), the third adventure nonetheless touches on unsettling themes – mortality, regret and moving forward with life. It makes sense that the film was penned by Michael Arndt, whose Little Miss Sunshine provided a similar balance of mirth and melancholy. There’s a new character, in particular, whose desperate bitterness would feel right at home in a Coen brothers flick.

Taking the guise of a prison-escape scenario, the plot offers plenty of opportunity for miniaturised hijinks, chugging along with momentum until a genuinely surprising climax (not yet revealed in any advertising). This takes the characters into unsettling, armrest-gripping territory that might upset the very young.

A trilogy that has spanned 15 years understandably wraps up in a moving way (bring tissues) but let’s not suggest that this movie is anything but a riot. A highlight is Michael Keaton voicing Ken (the glittered yin to Barbie’s yang) – his every line and gesture is pure gold.

As to where this one places in Pixar’s repertoire, well, it might not be as ambitious as WALL-E or Up but it builds on a strong base and reaches new heights. Clever animation, inventive direction, and canny comic timing means Toy Story 3 is hugely satisfying.Hide

Highly entertaining. I attended a late session and was amused by a cinema FULL of teens and adults in stitches at this soon-to-be classic. 3d graphics just added to the delight. As with the earlier two in the franchise this will appeal to all ages.

  • This is a jolly, slapstick comedy, lacking the almost eerie humanity that infused the earlier “Toy Story” sagas, and happier with action and jokes than with characters and emotions. Full Review

  • This terrific trilogy topper does all the things you want it to, with laughs, danger and action, starting off with a neat introduction of a Wild West adventure taking place in Andy's youthful imagination. Full Review

  • A kids’ movie for grown-ups. A grown-up movie for kids. Exactly what you’d expect — and hope for — from the latest, and we’re guessing final, Woody and Buzz adventure. Full Review

  • Woody, Buzz and playmates make a thoroughly engaging, emotionally satisfying return. Full Review

  • This film becomes the kind of love note to movies we want and need. Full Review

  • One of the best films of the year, Pixar’s long-awaited latest scores in every department. Funny, affecting and dramatically fearless, it’s as fine a threequel as you could hope for. Bring tissues – lots of tissues. Full Review

  • This tertiary adventure delivers welcome yet nonessential fun, landing well after its creators have grown up and succeeded toying with more sophisticated stories. Full Review
