A strange substance threatens a reef in ‘Go Fish’

There have been a few films based on ocean adventures. Finding Nemo took audiences on an amazing adventure. Finding Dory had them learn all about the past of a unique fish from the first movie. These films usually tell great stories and can be a blast to watch. So when I heard about Go Fish I had hopes I would enjoy it. I was able to get a review copy and this is my thoughts on this film.

You can read the plot for Go Fish here:

All his life, plucky parrotfish Alex has dreamed of being a superhero. He gets his chance when a mysterious flood of black goop erupts near his coral reef. As Alex and his pals — a sea horse, an eel, and a blowfish — swim off to confront the menace and save their home, they face a sunken ship with hidden treasure, an abandoned airplane, angry sharks, and an undersea volcano.

Go Fish was an okay movie. The animation was overall pretty good and did a nice job bringing many scenes to colorful life. Yet its biggest flaw was that there were too many boring moments. Maybe the story was a tad too predictable to me, but I found it hard to get through it. Towards the end it got better, but not enough to make me want to watch it again. Kids might enjoy this film, but it certainly won’t be for everyone.
