Restores some faith that there are some creative minds left in animated films that Pixar hasn't added to its talent pool.

It's sophisticated look is rich with details that are easy to take for granted, but which add immeasurably to the texture and dimension of the scenes.

The latest generation of animated flicks is a sort of latter-day vaudeville revue. Kiddies who take Bolt to heart may conclude not only that dogs really do have superpowers, but also that everybody's in showbiz.

Wait... an all-star voice cast for a computer-animated story we've never heard of before, and it's watchable, too?

A touch slight by Disney standards, but even if it's not high art, it's still warm-and-fuzzy fun.

Bolt marks Disney's long awaited re-emergence as a top-dog in the world of animation.

Unmistakably bears the conflicting influence of Pixar and Disney's old ideals.

Are your kids ready for an existential movie? Turns out they are: Disney's CGI-animated action comedy Bolt is, at its core, a story of one individual's discovery that his sense of reality...has been seriously skewed. [Blu-ray]

Focused, fun and action-packed, Disney's Bolt proves that it doesn't need the Pixar banner to make an excellent CG animated film.

John Travolta's earnest, gentle voice performance as the title character goes a long way in making this Disney animated feature a winner.

So much fun, you might be tempted to conclude that Disney's acquisition of the amazing Pixar team has inspired the already in-house Disney team to new heights.

I had a lot more fun at Bolt than I initially thought I would.

The jokes aren't a match for Pixar's best, and there's too much sentimentality (as if Lasseter were determined to keep Disney's cartoons just that little bit less cool than Pixar's), but this is still an above-average children's film.

It's funny and inventive, though not greatly helped by 3D.

The plot is sentimental fluff. But this has energy and invention enough to keep Lasseter top of the heap.

The wonderfully expressive features on Bolt make him feel almost real and the movie has enough charm and humour to please both adults and children.

The latest Disney animation has everything going for it, from a cast including John Travolta and Miley Cyrus to a truly brilliant premise.
