Critics Are Saying Soul Is Pixar’s Best Movie Yet

Critics Are Saying Soul Is Pixar’s Best Movie Yet

We love a good Pixar movie, so news that the studio's latest animation has done incredibly well with critics is music to our ears.

Soul has got a 100 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes

Soul follows Joe Gardner (Jamie Foxx) - a man who basically lives to play jazz music. It's all he talks about and all he thinks about.

While his dream is to be famous, until then he's working as a high school band teacher. However, on the day he finally gets his big break, he falls into a manhole and dies.

You can watch the trailer here:

Rather than cease to exist, Joe's soul is separated from his body, and with the help of fellow soul 22 (Tina Fey), he embarks on an epic journey to return to his physical being.

What follows, according to The Independent, is a film that not only "lives up to Pixar's own impossibly high standards, but it represents the very best the studio has to offer: beauty, humour, heart, and a gut-punch of an existential crisis".

The outlet adds: "The children will laugh and cheer; the adults will sob until their muscles ache."

Giving it an incredible five stars, The Guardian said: "It's all very headspinning, and there is real Yellow Submarine quality to the film's innocent urgency and idealism which take it to the very brink of incoherence.

"That can sometimes be exasperating but also really captivating, especially in that final visual cadenza in which Docter and Powers are really are going above and beyond the traditional Hollywood ending. It's a deeply sweet, happy, gentle film."

The Hollywood Reporter said: "This densely packed, exquisitely executed and just a teensy bit batshit film is peak Pixar. It's a vintage mix of the company's intricate storytelling, complex emotional intelligence, technical prowess and cerebral whimsy on dexamethasone."
