Pixar’s new Dia de los Muer­tos­themed an­i­mated movie crams the first se­quences with ex­po­si­tion, and then takes a col­or­ful yet light spin through the Land of the Dead. But ev­ery­thing is lead­ing up to a pow­er­house fin­ish. The suc­cess of this fi­nal act, and the way it trans­forms the en­tire film, is re­mark­able. A strong sec­ond movie from “Toy Story 3” di­rec­tor Lee Unkrich is one of Pixar’s bet­ter pro­duc­tions. Rated PG. 105 min­utes.
