Critic reviews of Onward
“The strength of Onward, and what moved me so much, was how it balances both themes – not sacrificing its message for the jokes. Instead, it expertly displays an equal brilliance of humour and emotional impact.”
- New Zealand Herald
“Personal experience is the heart beating at the center of Onward. No matter what you're bringing to the table, it's going to find a way to stick with you. Onward is a treasure that will stick with Pixar fans for quite a long time.”
“Wisely settles into being a largely straightforward mismatched brothers road-trip movie that happens to take place in this bizarre setting, with the magical lore business kicking into higher gear as the stakes require in Act 3.”
