The very best animated films have stories that stand up to repeated viewings, over long periods of time. Already, Monsters Inc falls into that category, courtesy of excellent characters, lots of warm laughs, and brilliant execution. It's a treat of a movie, and one that has already stood up time and time again to repeated viewings.

The film itself follows two of the best characters that the geniuses of Pixar have put on screen to date, Sulley and Mike. They're a team of scarers whose ability to generate screams from children helps generate more electrical power than any of their near rivals. It takes the introduction of a young girl named Boo to start turning things around.

Bursting with interesting supporting characters, and visuals that burst off the screen, the decision to give Monsters Inc a 3D upgrade has also been fully vindicated. It's a film that lends itself to the format well, without the need for gimmickry, and it makes an already stunning Blu-ray transfer just that little bit more essential. The Blu-ray is also loaded with plenty of extras to explore, which round off a quality package, for a very strong and much loved film.

Monsters Inc may not be Pixar's very best film. But it was and is something just that little bit special. And truthfully, who wouldn't want to give Sulley a big hug? --Jon Foster --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

This film is just a visual and audio treat. We have watched this blu-ray numerous times and each time is as funny as the last. It just seems to keep getting better with each viewing as we see more and more details in the picture, more and more subtle hints, jokes and producer tricks.

The story is moving, about monsters that work in a factory and scare children, collecting their screams for electricity to run their world. It has adult humor about the 9-5 grind, lots of laughs for the children, and of course, the bad guy. There is something for everyone in this film, and the characters are realistic, well portrayed, and you forget that you are watching a cartoon after a while. I don't post spoiler reviews, but the story is excellent here and one of their finest to date.

The DTS-HD MA sound delivers thumping bass and very realistic and believable surround sound perfectly balanced on all channels. The Subwoofer is well integrated into the sound effects for a nice deep addition to regular sound effects however, when it should thump, it really does. All channels get a good workout and really throw you into the movie. TEN stars for sound.

This cartoon may be a bit dated in terms of technical aspects but it is still an awesome display of cartoon. The picture is 1080P and just crystal clear and unbelievably cool to watch. Ten stars for video too.

After such an awesome sound/video quality, the story could be mediocre and it would still get five stars. However, the story is also very cool and entertaining to watch. This is one of the best blu-rays I have bought, and even better than some of the newer cartoons.
You can't go wrong with this Blu-Ray. A big thumbs up!

I know Monsters Inc is popular, but I've always thought of it as living in the shadow of the other Pixar films; it came nestled between the more successful and considerably more famous Toy Story 2 and Finding Nemo, it's not one of the 'Brad Bird masterpieces'; it's even outshined by the comparatively duller Cars, a film that coasted into kids' hearts despite being missing something perhaps only we older Pixar afficionados can see.

This is a shame, as Monsters Inc is one of the studio's very best films, and indeed one of Disney's very best by default. First time director Pete Docter knows his stuff- the film is filled to the brim with background detail, and after the discovery of the child the pace is frantic 'til the thoroughly satisfying conclusion. Following three films directed by studio head John Lasseter, Docter paved the way for the other directors to tackle their own ideas, and ironically Lasseter's return to directing (with Cars) fell far short of the bar set by Andrew Stanton with Nemo, Bird's The Incredibles, and this sterling effort.

The Blu Ray is a stunning transfer. While it's arguable that the film's groundbreaking fur rendering looks dated now, it still looks amazing compared with lesser offerings from Dreamworks. EVERYTHING in this film, in fact, looks amazing, from the subtle hues and colours of the sky to the photorealistic blizzard and underground halls. The animation on token child Boo is so human its impossible not to fall in love with her, share her fears and her delights. Background detail is too presented with astounding visual clarity- see the combination locks in the locker room or cars in the exterior shot of the building for proof.

... that there IS an art to film-making, and that Disney and Pixar are masters of this art.

Toy Story broke new ground, Toy Story 2 took the ideas there into new territory, and Monsters Inc takes the game onto a whole new level again.

Graphics, effects, lighting, sound, story, characters, voices - all are outstanding and all combine to make this a thoroughly enjoyable film. Want a challenge? Try to find any real flaws...

Also, unlike many 'suitable for all ages' films, this genuinely fits the bill. Like Shrek before it, there's plenty for adults to laugh at as well as the kids. This genre seems to have a monopoly just now on films that anybody can enjoy. Why's that so rare in live-action films these days...?

Anyway, if you enjoyed Shrek, or Toy Story, you will absolutely love this. If you haven't seen any of them, jump in! You'll love 'em!

From the creators of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 comes Monster's Inc. A heart-warming adventure story about the epic adventures of Sulley and Mike (two very funny monsters from Monstropolis). Monstropolis relies on children's screams to power their world and without it, just like us human's, we can't survive( no TV, Internet), the lot! So it is down to the incredible duo of Sulley and Mike to scare children whilst sleeping to help power their world. On the way Sulley makes a new friend called Boo and without spoiling the film they go on some brilliant adventures with a lot of laughs on the way. Overall this film is another brilliant creation from Pixar and just like Toy Story it is a film for the whole family to enjoy, a must for the collection.
