4.0 out of 5 stars Monsters are back to school, 7 Mar. 2014

This review is from: Monsters University [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Monsters University is an absolute joy from start to finish. A genius move of Pixar to revisit some old characters by creating a totally plausible prequel story.

Colourful, energetic and full of funny and interesting characters the imagination of Pixar never ceases to amaze. Here we find Mike and Sulley before they were friends both with dreams of becoming the best scarers in Monstropolis. Of course the path to true friendship has many ups and downs so this forms the main crux of the story.

After trying to outdo each other in class and knocking over the Deans' prized capsule and smashing it into pieces they are promptly chucked out of the scaring school. Mike decides to enter a scaring competition to prove that he is worthy of such a position and ends up with the most unscary bunch of monsters you could imagine.

Cue some hilarious challenges. The pace is quick and the energy high. Admittedly some of the characters in Mike's group are nothing more than talking heads to make up numbers but on the whole they are a fun bunch to hang around with.

The usual Pixar standards are in place such as the superb animation and some well developed relationships and characters that you cannot help but root for.

Pixar have managed to take something that could well have been stale and turned it into something fresh and inventive. If any anything it is a delight to hang around with some old friends once again.
