Finding Dory

Animation Adventure Comedy


 

The continuing under the ocean adventures of Dory the forgetful fish who sings.

"Finding Dory" is a colourful and visually stimulating marine adventure with stunning underwater vistas. Unfortunately, there's not much to delight audiences beyond those vivid splashy elements. The storyline is uncannily similar to its precursor, with one fish searching for another fish. There are some laugh out loud moments along with a low tide period where we're becalmed when neither the action nor the characters manage to hold viewer attention. It's disappointing that bullying sea-loins are portrayed as comic rather than offensive - poor role models. Go fish.
