Antz product reviews

Life is no picnic for Z, a small worker ant with some very big ideas whose chances of landing the beautiful Princess Bala are literally one in a billion. But when Z convinces his soldier ant buddy Weaver to switch places with him, his simple life takes a wild turn. From his battles in the termite war to his search for "Insectopia," Z's adventures land him in a final confrontation with the ruthless General Mandible who has planned to liquidate the colony.

Once the most insignificant of workers, Z may just turn out to be the biggest hero of them all!

Of all the Disney Pixar movies we own or I have seen, this is possibly one of my least favourites. Not least favourite as in did not enjoy it, would not watch it again, just least favourite in terms of all the ones I have seenlol A great little animated movie about a little ant whom is not quite happy with his lot in life and wants to experience more.

Antz has great animation, it is very well made and presented with a neat enough story line. But even my kids were not overly impressed with this one. Of all the movies we own this one would be our least watched, which confuses me as to why we actually have two copies of it lol one of which has never even been opened. The movie is still an enjoyable watch, just not a favourite.

I did however enjoy the commentaries and the part that showed how the antz movements and features were made. I always enjoys these extra features with movies, as I am interested in how these movies all come together to be the final product. Anyone interested in animation will be interested in these extra features as they are always informative and interesting.

Ever wondered if every ant out there is the same? Well Antz proves to us that not all ants are exactly the same.

Z doesn't like the job that he was given, being a worker ant. He falls for the princess and on an attempt to meet her gets sent into war. When he's the only one to return he is treated like a hero and thinks things are going better when he discovers a hideous plot to destroy half the colony. With some big names who bring this story to life and give the characters real life, this is a really fun movie for all ages.

The characters are really well done, full of life and very believable which is always a good thing, especially in an animated movie. The storyline is done really well, it has plenty of range from the odd ant out, war, treachery, romance, drama, action, basically all the right stuff to make a fun movie and keep the adults entertained as well. I enjoy watching this with my kids as there is plenty to keep them entertained whilst being a fun movie for me and my husband as well.

Antz is a well done, for all the family movie.
