Deep within the sea, Marlin and his wife Coral admire their little clutch of eggs within the Great Barrier Reef. As they protect them, a barracuda comes and eats Coral and almost all of the eggs. The very last egg was named Nemo and as he grew, Marlin kept worrying over him and trying to protect him. Because of his over perfectiveness, Nemo tries to swim out to a boat above the reef and ends up getting captured by a scuba diver who takes him to his home. Can Marlin save his last remaining child or will he be too scared to go on?
My Thoughts: This is actually a rather nice looking show. The story line is cute and actually rather funny in places. The whole cast of characters are fun and entertaining, starting with Marlin. Marlin is the overprotective father figure that goes out on a search to find his young boy. In a sense, this show is not just about Nemo’s self discovery but Marlin’s as well. He learns to ease up a bit, and how to have fun with the help of a Pacific Regal Blue Tang, Dory. Dory is one of the most interesting characters they have in the show and her childish way of looking at the world is rather refreshing and somewhat therapeutic in a way. She helps Marlin a lot though she doesn’t remember much.
The characters within the fish tank aren’t really any better. All of them have problems with being in a fish tank, pretty much, they all went crazy including one that came from the sea as well. There are so many characters in this show that they do get a little overwhelming but not all the characters actually stay for very long.
The animation is really well done. The colors are bright and wonderful just like the reef. You can even sometimes see the details in the scales as well as the colors of all the different types of fish. Most of them look real and then some look a little cartoonier, probably to have them stick out. This show was created for children but the love and attention they put into this makes it feel like it’s the real ocean. The only problem I see is that some of the ways the human’s are done look very hap hazard. It’s not really all that flattering.
The music and voices are pretty perfect. The music fits the mood that is happening and they don’t just brake out in song like a lot of other movies I have watched. When they do, it’s not that bothersome. It’s normally done like if someone just wanted to sing at that point, the really obnoxious type of song.
