Movie Info

For super-dog "Bolt", every day is filled with adventure, danger and intrigue - at least until the cameras stop rolling. When the star of a hit TV show is accidentally shipped from his Hollywood soundstage to New York City, he begins his biggest adventure yet - a cross-country journey through the real world to get back to his owner and co-star, Penny. Armed only with the delusions that all his amazing feats and powers are real, and the help of two unlikely traveling companions -- a jaded, abandoned housecat named Mittens and a TV-obsessed hamster named Rhino -- Bolt discovers he doesn't need superpowers to be a hero.

    From Walt Disney Animation comes the hilarious family comedy Bolt. After being separated from his co-star/owner, a dog named Bolt (who's been tricked into believing that his television series is real) embarks upon a journey to find her, but the real world proves to be full of dangers and perilous unlike anything that he's ever had to face before. The voice casting is especially good, and the characters are incredibly fun and entertaining. Additionally, the animation is extraordinarily vivid and colorful, creating a rich, textured look for the film. And, the comedy is especially funny, particularly the satire. Bolt is an amazing film that proves that Walt Disney Animation still has the magic.

    Would be better without Miley Cyrus. It's a animal version of the truman show that focuses more on the adventure, it has a well written script and voice acting (Not from Miley) It's funny and fun, definitely a family favourite

    not that it is a bad film it just hasn't got the spark that pixar and dreamworks have.

    Funny and cute, but doesnt live up to other classics. John Travolta and Miley Cyrus have great voice roles. The music is great, and the plot is just okay. The animation was pretty good, but doesnt live up to Pixar and Dreamworks. But whats great about this is that its funny, and in the end this movie rocks.
