Coco Movie Review:
The story continues with a boy Miguel who lives in a small town with his extended family, including his ancient great-grandmother Coco. Further the story states something about Coco’s father. He happened to be a musician who ran out to chase his musical dreams. After this the family has sworn never to have anything to do with music and has even torn this man’s image from the family photograph.
His spectacular and thrilling journey takes him to the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead. And here starts the spectacular animation which follows a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector whose body has a habit of collapsing and reforming with a xylophone clatter. Together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
Like any other movie COCO is well in the end. It comes out to be dark and sad, especially for those who’ve lost beloved relatives. Actually, it engages up the audience with nice narration, with sweet musical numbers and with on-point stuff about the national borders permeability.
But it encourages audiences to love and appreciate their family and always follow their dreams COCO also has powerful themes of perseverance, teamwork, and gratitude. COCO is ultimately a moving story about family connections and the complicated ways we love one another. While this film packs in adventure it desperately have colourful characters. And the appealing hero ultimately has to find peace in the land of the living with the help of the dead.
