Movie Review Criteria

Roger Ebert’s review of Toy Story paints an overwhelmingly positive picture of the film, calling it a “visionary roller-coaster ride of a movie.” He explains the effect of the visuals in the next paragraph: “‘Toy Story’ … achieves a three-dimensional reality and freedom of movement that is liberating and new.” In essence, his principal criterion is visual realism. However, he also notes several other high points of the film, such as fun, humor and excitement for the kiddies, as well as clever gags, endearing characters, and even poignant scenes which appeal to the more mature viewers.
