5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Underated
This films one of those gems which seems to play second fiddle in a companies back catalogue. OK so it isn't as reveared as Toy Story 1 or 2 and it did come out just after DreamWorks Antz but it is Pixar at its best. Although with technology moving very fast in digital film-making it may lack some of the fine detail of Sullys hair in Monsters Inc. But take another...

3.0 out of 5 stars Classic Pixar
Good Pixar film. My only complaint really is that the ants only have 4 legs (i.e. 2 arms and 2 legs). Seeing as it is a film about ants, you'd have thought they could have at least given them the right amount of limbs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Underated, 19 Sep 2002
This films one of those gems which seems to play second fiddle in a companies back catalogue. OK so it isn't as reveared as Toy Story 1 or 2 and it did come out just after DreamWorks Antz but it is Pixar at its best. Although with technology moving very fast in digital film-making it may lack some of the fine detail of Sullys hair in Monsters Inc. But take another look.
The SE version has been available in the US for over a year and it has finally arrived in the UK. It is worth a good look, the packaging does let the promotion down somewhat as there is no mention of the informative commentary by the production team. The proof in this well formed pudding is the cast of Bugs and the spot on voice selections. From Kevin Spaceys fantastic bad guy Hopper to Dennis Leary as Francis the male ladybird. Each charater has its own identity which make for a good story.
But talking of Good Stories this is the classic Seven Samuri in Miniature. It you like classic stories then this is what you need. OK its been done before in Battle Beyond the Stars and The Three Amigos but it is a classic story.
The Animation is superb with the detail shining through - the rain sequence, Flick's Dandylion seed flight and the thriving Bug City complete with Gershwinesque music score.
This has the sentiment of Toy Story but with the Sentimentality and fortunately without any songs - HURRAH! Randy Newman please just songs at the end please no more in the middle.
A Hidden Gem in the Pixar Back Catalogue. Now please release the early Pixar Shorts! They are fantastic!

This review is from: A Bug's Life [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
I got this DVD for my 2 1/2 year old little boy it is a beautifully made film for little people and the story is easy to follow, he still gets a bit wary about the grasshoppers but he loves the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very intelligent and well done movie, very likeable hero, 5 Aug 2007

This review is from: A Bug's Life [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
Some people consider "Bug's Life" as not being on the same level of quality as other Pixar productions, but I really can not agree with them. My daughter clearly wouldn't agree either. This is a very funny movie, with a lot of interesting innovations (we will never look at bugs in the same way, me and my family) and a kind of surprising kindness - even the bad guys are shown with some understanding (having chosen the life of parasite racketeers, they are now trapped by it - as much as their ant victims). The principal hero is possibly one of the most likable characters I ever saw. A little warning - there is one scene at the end, of the final demise of the leader of grasshoppers, that can scare younger children (under 6) - otherwise this movie is just PERFECT! The missed outtakes chapter at the end of the movie is probably the best I ever saw in a kids movie. Really perfect for a rainy Sunday afternoon.

It's good but somehow hasn't caught on with my children (aged 3 and 5) as much as other similar films like a bees life finding nemo toy story shrek.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great animation, 30 Nov 2011
This review is from: A Bug's Life [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
As always with Disney-Pixar animations, is a great film that is not just for kids but for adults too. The story is set around a colony of ants and their struggle against the evil Grasshoppers who come back every year and steal their food. There is some wonderfull computer animation and the voices are great too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true Pixar classic, 29 April 2011
This review is from: A Bug's Life [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Firstly the picture quality, why most will be buying this Blu(e) ray version, is fantastic. The detail and crispness of the image is an example of how good the format should be. Sound quality too is an immersive experience.

I'm sure most already know the film so will merely add, for those that haven't, it holds all the values of classic Disney.
Friendship, loyalty and teamwork all feature highly. The underdog seeing the strength within and what happens when you group together to stand up to your bullies and evil.
It has bucket loads of comedy and 'aww' moments, but moves along at a decent pace without lingering too long on any given point.

If it's important, there are a couple of 'frights' but are surprise rather than graphic scene so it is suitable for all, and nothing so heavy that little minds will be upset.

The 'out-takes' are a brilliant touch and the package knits together perfectly.

'Ladies and gentlebugs! Larvae of all stages! Rub your legs together for the world's greatest bug circus!'
