Is Marlin a Hero?
Marlin- The Hero
Marlin follows the main steps of a hero's journey perfectly. However, some of the steps that are not in the main twelve are either not present or not in its ideal spot. All in all, Marlin both represent the hero in this story and follows the path to prove it.
Journey and Archetypes
Although the journey seemed out of order for some points, the film was still able to show Marlin's development clearly. Also, it was easy to see the archetype of each main character because of the format of the story.
Film's Strength
The movie is easily liked not only because of its kid friendly nature, but its ability to allow the viewer to connect to characters.
Journey and Character Impact
The viewers are unconsciously watching the same story in every movie. In order to grab the attention of the audience, the creators utilized amusing characters as well as opposing personalities that are shown throughout the film.
