Very much like the story in its first launching of Finding Nemo, Finding Dory has almost similar patterns of story, although other characters and settings are displayed. This time, the purpose of Dory is going to find her family in California, while in Finding Nemo, her purpose is to go to Sydney. What a long journey, isn’t it?
In Finding Nemo, we were given many challenging scenes. From facing sharks to having a psychological dilemma when Marlin and Dory were in the stomach of a huge whale, this is what distinguishes this Dory’s journey from Nemo’s one. The strong character of Dory is that she never bothers to ask for help, even from a stranger fish in the ocean. She liked to make friends and the way she talked is one thing that makes its character stands out.
Surprisingly, tentacles have an undeniably important character as well. And, if I could say, this character is as important as Dory herself. Also, the way the tentacles jump and move, sometimes like the ninja, has made its character has a unique role. The same thing goes for Destiny and her friend, the Beluga fish. All characters have made the story possible!
Well, short-term memory lost? I guess that the phrase is the easiest way for Dory to recognize herself. From that long-distance, Dory finally could find her parents by following tiny clues to get to her parents, from that shells! Interesting, right?
For me, though, what I like the most in the part of this movie is when Dory finally could find the place where she lived with her parents. In the time where she met her parents, for me, the time moved so slow (which is great!). Too bad, in the movie, it was too quick. The story should be made a bit longer at that point. If only Dory got inside the “house” and tried to think for a while in there, and there the parents showed up. However, so touchy!
Worth watching by children and families, but with one thing for sure though: Real animals like the fishes in the movie are not exactly the same as in the movie. They are wilder in their own ways. I didn’t see the sharks, by the way. Where are they? Hm… Watched it on July 1, 2016.
