Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
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.
The filmmakers seem to have deliberately snubbed the traditional audience for animated features.
| Original Score: 3/4
It's a perfect picnic, without the pesky human interference.
Antz is refreshingly naughty and nice.
Antz is brief enough, clocking in at 83 minutes, but its story is too predictable to make an impact even in such a short space.
It's a well-written, witty tale, expertly executed!
Antz is about the relief felt by star actors freed from the constraints of their physical selves and the egos that go with them.
| Original Score: A
The film breaks new ground in its dazzling re-creation of life from an ant's-eye view!
A film of small, transient pleasures, diminished slightly by the clunkiness with which it wields it pat, Disney-esque self-determination moral.
Antz crawling with detail, humor, Woody Allen style.
The kids will like it. You'll laugh.
A dazzling delight!
Allen provides plenty of comic relief, and the computer-generated animation is pretty impressive.
A kids' movie that will leave grown-ups quoting the best lines to one another.
The computer animation is first rate and filled with the kind of "Wow! Look at that!" wizardry that is eventually going to make Toy Story look about as technically sophisticated as South Park.
An excellent piece of work!
Visually, it's more impressive than Disney's Toy Story. On a script level, it was developed as much with a mature audience in mind as with the usual pre-pubescent crowd.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
| Original Score: 3/4
Antz works best just showing off its prodigious voice talent and playing lightheartedly with the curious possibilities of a buggy world.
It's fresh, exhilarating, funny, able to tell an old story in a beguiling new way!
It enters into a microscopic world and makes it into a world so vast and threatening that comparisons with Star Wars are not unjustified!
Antz takes a huge step forward for computer animation!
