Toy Story 4 movie review - Aussieboyreviews


The finale to the Toy Story movie series is touching, entertaining, charming, but ends very unevenly with a mixed message. Toy Story 4 is suitable and loveable for all ages, but expect jump-scares in this instalment!


When a new toy made from trash named Forky joins Woody and the rest of the gang on a road trip with their new owner Bonnie, troubles arise as they seperate from each other and meet new and old friends along the way.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Despite another charming adventure and uproarious new characters, the actual ending of the Toy Story finale is an unforgivable tragedy to fans. But alike the previous instalments, Toy Story 4 is entertaining, funny and involves plenty of emotion.

With the original Toy Story releasing during the 90s, the animation here within the year 2019 is much more compelling and striking itself. The classical and constantly memorable cast of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and Joan Cusack also return to this new adventure, alongside more voice acting by Annie Potts as the relocated Bo-Peep.

The entire adventure and plot make a great addition to the Toy Story series. Absolutely no time is misused, but it’s not what would be considered a great finale. Children, teens, adults and even grandparents who have adored these tales since their childhood with likely be broken and left in denial after the ending. Toy Story 3 should’ve been announced as the touching finale, but if that was way too emotional and you couldn’t stand how events transpired there, the fourth instalment probably isn’t worth visiting.
