Slick 3D monsters far from frightful.

MONSTERS,INC (3D) 91mins U IN between the masterpieces of Toy Story and Finding Nemo, film company Pixar delivered a slick animation about creatures hired to haunt the world's children.

Monsters, Inc, released in 2001, may not have been Pixar's piece de resistance but it earned decent reviews and took half-a-billion bucks. Today, it's back in cinemas in souped-up 3D.

The story revolves around the creepy residents of the parallel world of Monstropolis, who are sent into bedrooms to scare the living daylights out of children across the globe.

Featuring the voices of John Goodman, Billy Crystal, Steve Buscemi and James Coburn in one of his last roles, it's every inch a Pixar film, from its colourful appearance, surfeit of in-jokes and sheer inventiveness.
