"Its Pacific Ocean setting is majestic, immersive, not intrusive, in evoking the vast sweep of the water and bringing us into the world of the tiny fish characters," Nell Minow of the The Chicago Sun Times describes the 3d enhancements of the movie.
"It makes interesting use of underwater darkness and light, different aspects of aquatic physics, and provides a spirited answer to the question of how a tiny little clownfish will cross hundreds of miles to get from the Great Barrier Reef to downtown Sydney," Jaime N. Christley of Slant said.
"Enhanced by its new 3-D conversion, every visual detail amazes in the gorgeous underwater world (though, frustratingly, the 3-D glasses also make the vivid colors darker)," Elizabeth Weitzman from the New York Daily News added.
But the critics aren't the only ones gushing over the newest installation of "Finding Nemo," Twitter's "Finding Nemo" fans took to the mini-blog to post how excited they were for the film to be re-released in theaters on Friday.
