I really expected a similarity with respect to our usual animated flicks. Surprisingly this movie 'Uped' the scale in my book.
The story opened with a shy Carl Fredricksen who I initially took for Russell (Right) the annoying wilderness explorer seeking his merit badge. Surprisingly Carl was the old man when he was younger. Carl is represented for having a love for adventure and an admiration for a famed explorer Charles Muntz who journeyed to South America in order to bring back a large bird species and up his reputation.
