I sat there in stone silent disbelief, wondering what the studio thought they were doing.

Without a doubt, the animation is vibrant and electrifying; it's only the story that lacks.

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 enters into a microscopic world and makes it into a world so vast and threatening that comparisons with Star Wars are not unjustified!

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.

In some ways this is Starship Troopers, as seen from the other side.

Appeals to your daydreams when you were a kid and you wondered about the daily physical hassles of an ant.

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

More story, less silly antics. Maybe then I'll be inclined to put down my can of Raid.

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

It is truly a film for the entire family and a portend of the road the new Dreamworks studio is creating.

The philosophical debates that centre the film are rather complex for little ones, but give us older ones something to talk about.
