Great effects, but surprisingly violent. Lacks kid appeal.

A Engaging and awe-inspiring animation once again elevates Shrek's world to fantastic heights, and the laughs are just as freewheeling as we have come to expect.

Kids may be puzzled by rebellious worker ants chanting Marxist slogans, but their parental guides may welcome the relief from the prevailing blandness of family films.

Visually striking and dynamically shot, this has strong characters and no shortage of incident.

Though the story is standard formula kids' fare, the Allen presence brings an adult swing to it, making it more than passable for both.

...the message of Antz is this: Freedom of choice is important, but one should use their freedom to be decent, responsible, humble, and helpful.

A few chuckles here and there, and a semi-interesting story line, but nothing too outstanding.

Has enough of a story to keep a child engaged and a script clever enough to keep an adult amused.

exciting, often hilarious and frequently wondrous film... Adults who live in fear of seeing non-Disney animated movies would be well-advised to overcome their prejudices.

Star-studded, gloriously animated, beautifully written, this cartoon will appeal just as much, if not more, to adults as to children.

How often have you been happy to find ants marching in your own back yard? This may mark the one and only time.

There's plenty of action in this computer-animated comedy, but it's no match for Toy Story in humor and originality.

...A spectacular computer-animated cartoon that is sure to give Disney's upcoming A Bug's Life a run for its sugar grains.
