The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen
At every imaginative juncture, the filmmakers (the screenplay is credited to Pixar veteran Molina and Matthew Aldrich) create a richly woven tapestry of comprehensively researched storytelling, fully dimensional characters, clever touches both tender and amusingly macabre, and vivid, beautifully textured visuals.

The Playlist - Drew Taylor
Thankfully, Coco, Pixar’s latest original work and one of their very best, truly does transport you. The results are magical and feel somewhat rebellious given the current political climate, which makes the film feel even more special.

San Francisco Chronicle - Peter Hartlaub
Coco is the best-looking Pixar movie since the tonally uneven “The Good Dinosaur.” The colorful afterlife is the centerpiece, but excellence is found in unexpected places.

TheWrap - Robert Abele
If an animated movie is going to offer children a way to process death, it’s hard to envision a more spirited, touching and breezily entertaining example than Coco.

We Got This Covered - Matt Donato
This is a masterpiece of woven ancestral roots and the importance of “familia,” confident in song and poetic in vision.
