A Bug's Life Reviews
January 25, 2015
To me this was just an average movie. It wasn't great, but it wasn't horrible... it was just average.
I gave this film more credit for originality than it's rival "Antz" even though it came out after the latter. I do this to these ridiculously similar films because there is proof that DreamWorks stole Pixar's plan and made it there own.
Everything else was average to me, but it's still mildly entertaining. So if you want to watch something that won't amaze but won't disappoint you, watch this.

Although somewhat lost in the success of numerous other Pixar films, A Bug's Life focuses on the life of those little creatures that walk around in our back gardens. Telling the tale of Flik, an ambitious and adventurous ant who must venture out of his land to recruit a team of 'superheroes' to defeat the evil that plagues his colony, A Bug's Life will let your imagination run wild with its superb characters, wonderfully vibrant animation, and emotive storytelling.

This movie is as funny and timely now than it was when I first saw it at when I was five years old. Kids can relate to the theme of being little and feeling powerless and it teaches kids to stand up for yourself against bullies. Adults might see this as a metaphor for income inequality, as the top 1% grasshoppers abuse their power to scare the working class ants. The witty dialogue, the visual humor, and the all-star voice cast of comedic actors make this not only one of my favorite animated films of all time, but one of my favorite comedies as well.

This movie is borderline unentertaining. I had to force myself to sit through it. The graphics are distracting from the infantile plot, which had my attention hanging by a thread.

Marking as Pixar's second feature film, A Bug's Life is another magnificent piece of groundbreaking animation and storytelling, with pure creative charm, and imagination. An advancement in computer animation, with stunning visuals, the films lives up to expectations and wows audience like an animated movie should. I watched the film over and over, and it is still as good as watching it for the first time, and it immediately puts a smile on my face, as it is exciting, hilarious, intense, and no matter what, timeless. The story and premise is entirely simple to its advantage, making it easier to add more creativity, and effort on the script, with a great amount of witty humor and comedy that excels in many ways. The story is about a inventive ant named Flik, who must team up with a group of circus bugs, in order to stop and defeat the grasshoppers from terrorizing the ant colony. Features a stellar cast such as Dave Foley, Kevin Spacey, Julia-Louise Dreyfuss, and Dennis Leary, who all fit perfectly each characters in a memorable and remarkable new way. A Bugs Life is another Pixar masterpiece that will live among the hearts of millions, and proved that Pixar is no one-hit-wonder.

This movie is ride of a lifetime. The animation is top notch and the characters have been blended together to work like a prefect cocktail. Using brains instead of brawns in the need is the highlight of the movie.

One of the original Pixar films, 'A Bug's Life' is a classic in every sense with amazing animated sequences. Featuring impressive voice-overs from Dave Foley, Kevin Spacey and Hayden Panettiere, the film displays vivid colours, witty dialogue and stunning animation. A film not to be missed.

A fun, creative film to enjoy from the techs of "Toy Story." (A-)
(Full review coming soon - with better wording probably)

With hilarious characters, a great premise and perhaps the best villain in the Pixar canon, A Bug's Life is one of animation's absolute best efforts.

It's a far cry from most other Pixar movies, but it's still a movie worth watching for sure and better than its counterpart Antz.

You may think you've forgotten this film, having watched it more than once I can say it only gets better and better, and there's not much about the film that doesn't shout "classic"

A Bug's Life is another wonderfully creative Disney movie. It's well written and well voice acted. However, it does fall far from the list of GREAT pixar movies. Unfortunately, A Bug's Life does not move you like, the Toy Stories do, or like Up, or Walle, or even Finding Nemo. It attempts to pull at your heart strings with the rejection of Flik, but even that fails to work, because you know the whole time that it's never going to end on a sad note. Even so, A Bug's Life entertains. And let's be honest, that's the purpose of the movie. So because of that I say "Watch Away". It's Pixar anyways, you can't go wrong.

I have stayed away from this, and its counterpart "Antz" for many years, because I thought (and still do) that I had the ant cartoon idea first :P
Other than that, it's a pretty solid effort, with Lasseter's signature all over it.
