Critic Reviews for Antboy
Take off your thinking cap and simply enjoy the mini-pleasures of "Antboy."
You gotta love a movie that calls itself "Antboy." Unless, alas, you also have to sit through this Danish, dubbed-in-English kiddie movie.
Wow, talk about creepy! "Antboy" is a live-action film from Denmark about a 12-year-old wallflower bitten by a super-ant and given prepubescent super powers.
Hardly a great children's movie, but the young actors are a pleasant enough bunch that at least you don't feel like squashing it.
Audience Reviews for Antboy
Fun and charming - and honest enough to wear its references on its sleeve.
Proving that not everything based on a comic book should be made into a live action feature, comes “Antboy,” a film about a boy who is bitten by an ant and has to face a villain after acquiring the powers of an ant. Beat for beat like Sam Raimi’s original “Spider-Man,” this film was both hard to watch, and some of the most fun I have ever had laughing at a film. With the poorly dubbed english version of this film, you can’t help but chuckle and have fun with it, while enjoying this ridiculously stale and tired story. By the end of this very short film, I had loved, hated, and laughed at this film. “Antboy” knows exactly what it is, but that is the biggest issue here, because it is a little too self-aware, to the point that almost every single scene gives you DeJaVu. I enjoyed watching a few scenes of this picture, but by the end, it felt like a children’s rental at best. In the end, I laughed a few times and the main actor was enjoyable in the lead, but the movie around those aspects it pretty bland. I’d recommend it if you have a bunch of people with you to laugh at it with.
Have you ever longed to be something else? Pelle is an ordinary boy, neither popular or a nerd, not overly athletic, and doesn't get noticed by girls. Pelle just wants to be noticed. One inauspicious day he is bitten by an ant, and turned into a super hero. He now gets the notoriety he deserves, but can he resist blowing his cover for popularity? "Here's your magazine." "Magazine? Are you insane? It's Spider-man." Ask Hasselbalch, director of Antboy: Revenge of the Red Fury, delivers Antboy in his directorial debut. The storyline for this picture is essentially Spider-man with kids; however, the characters and circumstances are interesting and I enjoyed watching it unfold. The acting is as you'd expect from a children's movie. "Pain is your mind telling you you're alive." I grabbed this off Netflix as a movie my daughter and I could watch together. I actually watched it the other day without her and was surprised that it was a little better than anticipated. This isn't a complete waste of time and a nice movie for kids in elementary school to view. Overall, this is nothing special but a movie that may keep kids occupied. "I'm sending you away with a flea in your ear." Grade: C
