Bolt is a heartwarming tale from Disney about a sheltered movie star dog learning the ups and downs of reality after a mishap puts him across the country with no easy way home.
One of the earlier hits of the Disney Animation Studios, Bolt has the look and feel of the better-known Pixar Studios films. However, it proves once again that DAS has the chops to compete with the likes of Pixar. When Pixar lost it's edge and was only making sequels, DAS was creating movies like this. In the years that followed, only a couple of Pixar movies have grabbed me, but every DAS release is a winner.
Bolt is animated in a beautiful 'water-color' background look and is a sight to behold. It's not as beautiful as say, 'The Good Dinosaur', but it holds it's own. All of the characters are well-developed, and range from hilarious (Rhino the hamster) to despicable (Penny's agent guy) to a character that you hate at first to one you learn to love (Mittens). There is lots of action in this movie, befitting of the action-hero roles that Bolt and Penny play.
My entire family LOVES this movie, and we rewatch it all the time. It has lots to keep little ones and grownups alike completely entertained. It is one of the best 'hidden gems' from DAS, and certainly worthy of your collection.
