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!!

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

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.

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 :-)

I can only think that those that wrote negative reviews for 'Bolt' are not generally entertained by 'Disney' movies ?
For as long as i can remember 'Disney' have been producing family films that have and still entertain kids of all ages, from 'Snow White' to 'Peter Pan' -'Lady and the Tramp'- 'The Lion King' -'Monster's Inc'-'Wall-E' and so more recently 'Frozen'
For me the 'computer-animation' standards being produced are improving all the time.....and this production does not 'buck' the trend.
The film has all the usual charm that has kept 'Dsney' ahead of the game for more than '70' years.
'Bolt' believes he and his owner 'Penny' ( Hollywood stars ) are real hero's...until he is accidentally packed away to 'New York' ...when there still believing he has super-powers, 'Bolt' knows he has to get back to 'Hollywood' to rejoin his best friend 'Penny' and also save her from capture by the 'evil' 'One' Green-Eye 'villain'
Along the way he meets up with a street-wise cat 'Mittens' and the brilliantly funny 'Rhino' ( when i purchased this it came with a cute Rhino toy) 'Bolt' soon learns his 'powers' aren't real, but he still believes he must with the help of his new friends 'save' 'Penny'
This is a really nice, funny and charming 'Disney' movie and a must for the kids ( of all ages ) forget the critic's and enjoy the film.
