From Amazon.co.uk

Ostensibly a funny animated film about a dog who thinks he has superpowers, Bolt is also a movie about friendship, perseverance, and the power of believing in oneself. Everyone knows that superheroes on television are not real, but TV star super dog Bolt (John Travolta) is a canine star who was carefully raised to believe that he really possesses superpowers. In true loyal canine style, Bolt is completely devoted to his human co-star Penny (Miley Cyrus). When Penny is captured by the evil Dr. Calico (Malcolm McDowell) in their latest television episode and Bolt gets accidentally let loose in the real world, he sets off on a journey to save her. Bolt is confounded when his super powers are suddenly ineffective, but inspiration strikes and Bolt quickly discovers the mysterious, power-stealing effects of Styrofoam packing peanuts. An encounter with alley cat Mittens (Susie Essman) gives Bolt some eye-opening lessons about being a real dog in the real world, while star-struck, ball-enclosed hamster Rhino (Mark Walton) revels in the opportunity to serve as Bolt's sidekick in the quest to rescue Penny. The trio traverses the United States from waffle house to waffle house on a hysterical quest to find Penny and prove that the relationship between Penny and Bolt is real. In the end, Bolt, Mittens, and Rhino learn that everyone is special in their own way and they discover the true power of believing in oneself and one's friends. Selected cinemas showed Bolt in 3-D, but the film is probably equally enjoyable in the traditional format. A fun film with a nice message and a huge dose of cute, Bolt is good entertainment for the entire family. --Tami Horiuchi

Synopsis

In this 2008 computer-animated Disney film, an adorable dog named Bolt (voiced by John Travolta) has been trained to believe that he has superpowers, and that his young owner, Penny (Miley Cyrus), is in perpetual peril, thanks to the schemes of the dastardly Dr. Calico (Malcolm McDowell). However, the loving and protective Bolt and his human companion are really actors in a popular TV show, a production that goes to great lengths to make sure its star pooch remains in the dark about his fictitious life. When Bolt is accidentally transported off of his show's Hollywood lot, he must find his way back home and contend with his not-so-super reality, aided by a scrappy alley cat (Susie Essman) and a very enthusiastic hamster (Mark Walton).

Helmed by animation vets and first-time feature directors Byron Howard and Chris Williams, BOLT benefits from executive producer John Lasseter's sterling Pixar touch, often echoing themes of that beloved company's canon, particularly 1995's groundbreaking TOY STORY. A fun movie that will delight children, BOLT is excellent family fare and easily one of the finest dog-themed films in cinema history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top dog :) 7 Feb 2009
Format:DVD
Sorry 'Sera69' but I have to disagree. I've just come back from watching this film at the cinema with my 7 year old daughter and we thoroughly loved it. As we left the cinema there were families already telling their children they would buy it when it came out on dvd, and I would too.

If you go to watch it with the same over critical eye as 'Sera69' then I guess you too would be disappointed, but hey come on it's just a bit of fun. Lets not get all 'Barry Norman' and serious on what is just some light hearted entertainment, which lets face it, is aimed at kids. As for the laughs, I laughed out loud, as did so many others sat around me.

So, in summary, if you want to watch something with more of an adult theme then watch something aimed at an older audience, if not go and watch this film, you and your children won't be disappointed!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Awesome! 25 Aug 2009
Format:Blu-ray
This is sad but true - I am 27 (and female) and think this film is brilliant. The hamster is the star of the show and it's worth a look for adults and children. It's a nice change from all the animated cheese we get and has some great lines that the kids probably won't get. Go for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bolt! 13 Jun 2009
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
The 1st time i went to see it with my mum i thought it was absolutly wicked! I cried twice where most people cry once. Oh its so cute! Then i went to see it with my friends and it was even better. I love Rhino the hamster, he's my favorite. Mylie C is brill as Penny even though i hate her singing and 'Hannah Montana' is the most awfull thing and not funny. But it really dousn't sound like her and she releases her inner self. My friend said it was a bit boring, but she does prefer old movies and she also suggested going to see 'The curious case of Benjamen Button'! The small but exiting adventure really shows that you should never give up on what you believe you can do. I'm 11 and thought it was awsome so i'm sure all ages and genders would love it. Disney Pixar do the most amazing job seeing as it takes 3-5 years to create a pixar movie, and they have to get the trend right seeing as trend is moving quickly through the ages, and they have to get it right other wise it looks really old.

So I think you should definitely buy this movie but if you haven't seen it, watch it on rental first. Thank you for reading this and hope it comes in useful. By Olivia May

5.0 out of 5 stars A return to form for children's CGI genre.... 26 Sep 2010
By The Truth TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
When 'Toy Story' & 'Shrek' came out, adults loved them as much as kids, but sadly an onslaught of CGI animated kids films failed to maintain the standard - until 'Bolt'...

OK, 'Finding Nemo' and 'Over the Hedge' were excellent too, but others such as 'Barnyard' were not. I'm happy to say 'Bolt' is a true return to form for the CGI kids animation genre. The voice talents are excellent, the jokes laugh out loud funny, and the Characters great. I can thoroughly recommend this to any one - with or without kids. I watched it with my mates (not a child in site!) and we were all in hysterics.

The story of Bolt is as follows: Bolt, is a Super-dog... or at least he thinks he is. He's the star of his own TV show and in each episode he rescues his owner ( a little girl) from the clutches of an evil villain, using his 'Sonic Bark' and various other super powers. The thing is he believes he really has these powers and one day becomes seperated from his owner and lost. Cue a rude awakening, a coming to terms with real life, and road trip across America to find his owner, and a whole bunch of new and hysterical friends (particularly a hamster called Rhino).

9/10... a classic. I watched 'UP' too the other week and in my opinion this was far, far superior on every level.

If you found this review helpful please give it the thumbs up and if not, comment on why so I can do a better job for you next time. Thanks :-)

This 3D Blu Ray of Bolt really pops...! The depth conveyed is staggeringly good. This is my first 3D blu-ray purchase and I am not disappointed by any aspect of the film. Also comes with 2D version as well. Excellent value and a fun (& funny) movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars An accidentally watched piece of hilarity... 26 Jun 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I flicked channels just as this was starting and was only waiting for the kettle to boil, but I was quickly hooked on this tale of a movie star dog who believes he is the superpup character he portrays.

A fabulously funny tale, charting a journey and the friendships made along the way. It sounds like a classic disney tale, but it's much, much funnier than usual.

So much so I bought it very shortly after watching it.
