Critic Reviews for A Bug's Life
A Bug's Life may be the single most amazing film I've ever seen that I couldn't fall in love with.
This animated fable teems with vivid creatures standing on their own countless feet.
No excerpt available.
The plot matures handsomely; the characters neatly converge and combust; the gags pay off with emotional resonance.
Full of adventure, spectacle, light romance, and the kind of suspense that doesn't require an unpredictable outcome to make your spine tingle.
Audience Reviews for A Bug's Life
for one of the earliest Pixar films it really doesn't show because the art is still fantastic, and the drama and comedy of this movie was fantastic and as a little kid this was my favorite movie its definitely not anymore but it still is fun to watch
It may not be the best Pixar film out there, without the feel-good story that most of the films in the Disney/Pixar universe have, but "A Bug's Life" is a real treat visually and character-wise. It is a very simple story about how one ant, mistreated and misunderstood, becomes the life of his colony, when a bunch of mistakes take him on an adventure to find Warrior bugs, in order to stop an infestation of Grasshoppers on their island. It is basic, and kind of ridiculous, but the heart is all there and you can feel for the characters by the end. I highly enjoy this film and I will continue watching it for years to come.
A Bug's Life is a fantastic piece of animation and storytelling, and is just pure imagination for any kid. Pixar has lived up to the fantastic Toy Story with their second film and it truly lives up to the expectations. I remember when I was a kid and I watched this film non-stop, I mean its hilarious, intense, and overall is just great storytelling. The characters stay in you head with the variety of bugs, and each one has a different personality that the writers all creatively give. I have always loved Flik, he was hilarious when I was a kid and his laugh (the laugh of Dave Foley) always put a smile on my face. The ants represent oppression and Flik the one who wants to defend them, and this makes him quite the hero. Dave Foley, Kevin Spacey, Julia-Louise Dreyfuss, Dennis Leary, and everyone else provides their voices and perfectly fit each memorable and cool character. The animation is also still fun to this day, all the colors and environment really live up to the standards of Pixar. This had competition with the Dreamworks film Antz, and in my opinion, this film kicks Antz right in the buttocks. A Bug's Life is a childhood favorite of mine, and is one of the films that live in the hearts of hundreds of imaginative adults and kids.
