Toy Story 4 basically rehashes all the best bits of its predecessors, which is still saying a lot, given how almost everything about those films screams classic.
One toy gets lost — check. One or more toys set out to rescue lost toy — check. Said toys encounters one or more new toys with nefarious intentions — check. A finale that tugs at your heartstrings — check.
However, that’s not to say the film doesn’t have its moments, of which there are quite a few due to how debutant Director Joshua Cooley , and writers Andrew Stanton and Stephany Folsom go about telling their subject. The narration has heart, the jokes are fresh, eliciting roars of laughter, and the denouement is pretty emotional.
If this is (and it should be) the conclusion to the Toy Story franchise, then it indeed is a worthy one.
