Finding Nemo UGLY and SAD rip-off, 19 October 2012
Author: rubengomezradioboy-913-561910 from Alicante, Spain

Nuff said.

All the scenes are a cheap copy of the excellent movie of the Studio Pixar, but worse. When something has been reinvented and creates a reboot, that it is supposed to improve a bad product, or one that it has become obsolete for new generations. But in this case Finding Nemo is a film for which have not passed the years, and for which I believe will not pass. It is simply classic animated film without following aggressive tendencies that may remain in disposal.

This film is a lack of respect and I hope that the team pay the consequences, since stealing intellectual property is an offense.
