Elemental (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Clarisse Loughrey Independent (UK) Gentle and humane but never raw or vulnerable. Rated: 3/5 Jul 13, 2023 Full Review Elemental (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Wendy Ide Observer (UK) There are tonal parallels with Pixar’s Inside Out and Zootropolis, but while it has a peppy visual energy, Elemental lacks the wildly inventive storytelling of the former and the laughs of the latter. Rated: 3/5 Jul 9, 2023 Full Review Elemental (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Larushka Ivan-Zadeh metro.co.uk A bit like Inside Out meets Zootropolis – but not as fully worked out as either – it’s a movie of lovely, radiant moments. Rated: 3/5 Jul 7, 2023 Full Review Elemental (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Cory Woodroof For the Win (USA Today) It’s not often you get an original concept from Pixar that doesn’t work. Mar 1, 2024 Full Review Elemental (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Sharanya Kumar Film Companion Elemental manages to be pleasantly heart-warming, if not nearly as profound or affecting as some of the studios’ previous projects. Jan 12, 2024 Full Review Elemental (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed Probably one of the worst Pixar outings in a very long time. Dec 14, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

This movie is legitimately one of the most entertaining of the year. The Character development throughout the movie is incredible. Watching Ember(the main female character) go from being hot headed and indecisive, to this strong and tranquil character who is willing to follow her destiny. It was very entertaining to watch, and I would recommend Elemental to any family who wants to have a funny, enjoyable experience at the movie theater! Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 09/08/23 Full Review Jahsoulay W. Omgosh!! AMAZING!! Pixar has done it again, I feel like since all the movies since 2020 have been mid, but THIS ONE!
