It's a fun adventure fantasy, and I was never bored...

While the animation, particularly in the action set pieces, is indeed well done, it's nothing revolutionary nor imaginative that stands out from the rest in this CG-feature-a-week marketplace.

Isn't clever or inventive enough to make up for its repetitive and lackluster storytelling.

One of those animated features you can enjoy even without a kid by your side.

It's imaginative and amusing with its engaging characters and nicely crafted animation, even though the ants themselves are visually the least interesting ... Uplifting and bright.

Ten year old Lucas Nickle ( the voice of Zach Tyler Eisen) stomps an anthill after an encounter with neighborhood bullies. With the help of a magic potion, the ants shrink the boy down to their size. The insects are about to get even and Lucas will learn

...this visually arresting story of a young geek's friendship with some enterprising ants isn't as compelling in the script department.

The film acknowledges that faith is an important part of our social fabric, and if the film has any moral lessons to pass on, it implicitly roots them in a spiritual foundation.

Bangor Daily News (Maine)

The new computer-animated movie, "The Ant Bully," knows a few things about bullies, most of which we already know--all of which bear repeating.

Sci-Fi Weekly

Even without too much sentimentality, and without any musical numbers, this is a fun-filled animated masterpiece that should only be seen in 3-D and on a 70-foot screen.

Kiddie-friendly toilet humour, a whiff of suspense and familiar voice actors make it passably entertaining, but there's little warmth or emotional satisfaction to be had from its cynical characters.

Besides keeping us entertained and occasionally thrilled, there's a nice sense that the film is actually saying something.

Enjoyable, brightly animated adventure with strong characters, superb gags and a script that isn't afraid to throw in a spot of political subtext.

Writer-director John A Davis has one or two nice touches, but the film is disposable.

As kiddie entertainment it works well, with simple humour and lots of action. But there's not a lot to appeal to any accompanying adults.

It does have a spunky pace and the clever humor Davis' team brought to the Jimmy Neutron movie and TV series.
