You know, there was a time in which we didn't candy coat stories for children. The Evil Queen in Snow White, for one, was forced to wear red-hot slippers and dance to her death. Even in older Disney films like "Bambi", the serious issue of death is broached.Now, no one dies. It's too serious.Horsehocky.One of the best moments I had watching "Antz" in a theater was listening to a mother explain why Barbatus died. Guess what? Death is a natural part of life -- and to refute it exists is plain wrong. Or, as in the recent Disney flick "Hercules", Hades, the <more>
God of Death is portrayed as evil. What, are people supposed to be immortal? While not appropriate for 4 year olds, I wouldn't think twice about showing it to an 8 year old. Why must movies be dumbed down -- PG means parental GUIDANCE. Any movie that forces you to talk to your kids after a movie is a good one. Don't treat your kids like little morons.
Top class intelligent entertainment (by BadWebDiver)
I loved this story. I thought is was a very intelligently entertaining movie:- a good combination of interesting ideas mixed with great visuals and broad comedy.All the the voice casting was top notch; especially Gene Hackman, Christopher Walken, Sylvester Stallone, Dan Aykroyd, and of course Woody Allen. There was also great version of Neil Finn singing "I Can See Clearly Now"; and the visual design and music score was breath-taking and dynamic. Plus the storyline is more gritty with a darker undercurrent, and would appeal to a more sophisticated audience, which it is good to have. <more>
I'm not saying that cute fun stories aren't OK too. In fact IMHO the wider the spectrum of stories we can get the better we'll all be.I personally think this is slightly ahead of the equally brilliant A BUG'S LIFE; even though both are really top class storytelling. This one wins by about half a feeler.
Fabulous performances by an all star cast with fabulous animation. (by smccrea-2)
Antz is a charming romantic comedy that is better appreciated by adults than children. In fact, there are some scenes that may be a bit too violent or gruesome for small children.All of the actors perform brilliantly with an excellent script even though the plot is a bit trite. All the actors excel in their roles even the usually bland Stallone and Lopez who are more animated in this film than in most of their other roles.I found the move to be appealing visually. Apart from some of the backgrounds that seem to be hand painted, the animation is superb.
Miles better than A Bug's Life (by R_O_U_S)
Miles better than A Bug's Life. The latter film was just bugs-in-peril...a bit like The Seven Samurai, yes, but essentially unimaginative if funny . This takes Woody Allen "the middle child in a family of 6 billion" , makes him best mates with Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Lopez, and sticks him on the run with Sharon Stone. At the same time, thousands of his fellows are massacred in a Starship Troopers-like attack by termites. Only in animation. It's exciting, it's clever, it's often hilarious, and it boasts one of the best ensemble casts ever put together.
Witty and charming... a must-see! (by TheLittleSongbird)
Antz is rock-solid entertainment, and while it isn't as funny as Bug's Life, it has a great social message that Bug's Life lacks. I thoroughly recommend this movie, and the only criticism I have is that there are some scenes that young children might find frightening, like the fight between the ants and the big green bugs. The visuals are a delight, as well as the tightly-structured script.The story, while simple, is well-told, and is sensibly revolved around the life of Z, brilliantly voiced by Woody Allen. Sharon Stone was suitably feisty as Princess Bala, and Sylvester Stallone <more>
was a huge surprise as Weaver. Christopher Walken was also good, but it's the villain who steals the show, like Bug's Life. Gene Hackman's General was deliciously sinister, and quite complex, very similar to Kevin Spacey in Bug's Life Hopper is SLIGHTLY better . All in all, a witty and charming film, that is recommended. 9/10. Bethany Cox
Like how Pixar started off strong with Toy Story, DreamWorks also has a film that cranked their engine up nicely, its called Antz. It is a film that not only has a great story, animation, and characters, but one that belongs with the legends of animated films. After this, DreamWorks would shortly become Disney's greatest competitor. And this would only be the first of many successes in DreamWorks' lineup. Now let talk about what made this so great. First the story is very realistic. And the way the ants work actually seem like what they would actually be. The ants all look different, <more>
making them all easily recognizable. And the animation although dated, looks impressive for a first time animated studio. I'd say the animation is on par with Toy Story. Of course no film is perfect. The negatives are that although the story is realistic it does have many similarities to A Bug's Life. I know the whole story involving Disney and Katzenburg but don't get me started on that. The film did come out before A Bug's Life meaning that maybe A Bug's Life is the least creative. So with that said, Antz is the more original film. There however isn't much else to gripe about and the animation is just a nitpick, in 1998 it does look very impressive. Luckily, unlike Don Bluth, Amblimation, and Fox Animation, DreamWorks managed to stay for a long time to come. Antz helped to kick off one of the best companies working today. Now to grade.

Antz isn't as perfect and smooth as a Disney film. Great! (by philip_vanderveken)
I'm probably a weird guy, but I really appreciate a good animated movie even though I'm no longer a kid I'm 26 years old . What I liked about this one is the great animation, the nice story, the humor... I haven't seen A Bug's Life yet, which makes it impossible for me to compare both of course, but I really liked the style used in Antz. Usually a Disney production gives me the feeling I'm watching a movie which was intended for kids only although A Bug's Life was created by the Pixar studio's, which gives me a bit of hope , while Dreamworks understood that <more>
adults too can appreciate this kind of movies, if only they take care of the style and the story. Most of Disney's animated movies are just too smooth, too perfect for me, and to be honest the songs almost make me sick. The style in Antz is much grittier. It isn't as perfect and smooth as a Disney production and the message is a lot stronger. The film is probably exciting for little children, thanks to the humor, fantastic images and action, but the underlying subtext and social commentary on humans make this movie different from Disney's moralizing films. However, the different message isn't the only difference between Disney and Dreamworks. I don't think Disney ever risked to use very well known scenes from other movies in their own films. In Antz you can find some excellent scenes which refer to movies like Metropolis, Starship Troopers,...Some people have some critics on this movie because it doesn't show how a real anthill is organized, how strong ants really are, that ants don't look for a partner, ... Let me tell this to these people: I respect you're way of thinking but I think you should have watched a documentary instead of an animated movie. I sure hope you understand there is still a big difference between a documentary, based on scientific research, meant to teach people and a movie like Antz, who's only purpose is to entertain people. Personally I liked the movie for what it was and I give it an 8/10.
It's probably the first time Woody Allen is so much like himself when he isn't at all. Ant Z, a neurotic, fatalistic, depressive, sorry ant with a record low level of self-esteem transforms into a part-time content, revolutionary hero of his utterly totalitarian and fascistic colony ever imaginable. Apart from the incredibly precise animation and "logical" fantasy, one feels a bit distracted with the subliminal messages the picture tries to impose. While it would be easy to reduce the moral to the frequently recited motto: "think for yourself once!", there are <more>
too many of them to ignore. This definitely is not a kid's flick, it is meant for and appreciated by adults, with many philosophical, psychological and social references and conflicts. One big "bravo!" to Dreamworks. I think they have achieved the point where adults can actually enjoy animation movies while believing the whole stuff. These insects are surely going to bite some Disney bugs.
Very underrated movie, this is one of Dreamworks' best (by FairlyAnonymous)
Antz is an animated movie that wasn't appreciated upon its initial release. After the family friendly movie Toy Story, I feel like people weren't ready for something a little bit darker, and more intense. This movie has death and a lot of it at that , it has violence, it has gore, it has humor, it has swearing, and it has alcohol in it... pretty epic huh granted, just being edgy doesn't necessarily equal good . The movie Antz which actually came out before A Bug's Life by about a month takes the role of what ants do a lot more seriously and better captures an ant like <more>
atmosphere. The movie A Bug's Life really doesn't seem to understand what ants do or how their colonies work, but the movie Antz does it all. There are the miners, the warriors, the drones the ones with wings the queen and others. The voice acting itself is also pretty good and Woody Allen fits the role of Z perfectly. The animation was also pretty advanced for its time, because it did many things that were hard for that time: Water, large amounts of moving objects, realistic face movement, realistic body movement, lighting, and many others.The nice thing about this movie is that it doesn't pretend to be a kids movie. Ants swear in it the word b****in is used once and as mentioned there is a lot of violence. Like a very intense scene where the ants are trying to fight a termite colony and the ants are getting attacked by acid, are getting decapitated, and dying in other various barbaric ways. The thing is that this movie doesn't cover up death. When someone dies, the movie won't hide it.The other cool thing in Antz is that the rest of the insects in the movie are as hideous and monstrous as they should be. Praying Mantis? It is infinitely larger than an Ant. Wasps? Like giants. It gives this overwhelming sense that Z is not only small in the ant world but also small in the insect world as well. There is nothing that can't kill him even the princess could if she wanted .Honestly this movie was really good, it has a good story, it has good characters, it is realistic, and has nice action. One of Dreamkworks' best.
