4.0 out of 5 stars One of Dreamworks' few good ones October 3, 2008
By T. Gadd
Format:DVD
It's ironic, but 'Antz' may be remembered as the last great Woody Allen comedy. Like Robin Williams in 'Alladin', Z's dialog is so quintessentially Woody Allen that it's hard to believe he didn't write or ad-lib some of it. It's also a damn sight funnier than anything Woody has made himself since I can't remember when, or anything Dreamworks made, up til 'Over the Hedge'.

Some of Z's lines to the ant psychiatrist in the opening scene alone are priceless. The world might be slightly tired of Allen playing the whiny, neurotic wimp, but in 'Antz' the character who, back in 1967, tried to hold up a bank with a stick-up note which nobody could read ("I have a Gub?") is absolutely perfect.

What's more, Allen is cast alongside Sylvester Stallone (who, incidentally, was voted worst actor of the century in the Razzie awards in 2000), and even HE comes across well. This is easily the most bizarre pairing since Mickey Rooney and Kurt Russell in 'The Fox and the Hound'. No, wait... I forgot about Ernest Borgnine and Sheena Easton... well it just goes to show that in animation, miracles can happen.

It's been said before, but it bears repeating: Antz, despite the ostensible similarity of subject matter, and similar release dates, is nothing like 'A Bug's Life'. Put simply, 'Bug's Life' is a kid's film this is an adult's film which kids will like.

The story, I suppose, is nothing remarkable: male nobody gets princess... another parallel with 'Alladin' - but there is a social and political undercurrent to 'Antz'. If it owes a little to Disney, perhaps it owes a little to George Orwell, too.

There's something else about 'Antz': it's one of the few CGI movies where the CGI just didn't bother me at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't find these Antz in yer Pantz! May 8, 2000
Format:DVD
The Film: [Rating: 84%] Dreamworks challenger to the Disney ant favourite A Bug's Life arrives on a feature packed DVD complete with a truly sumptuous transfer. Ok, so it's a cartoon - but don't be put off since this one is loaded with far more wit and style than your average kiddie flick (isn't he in a A Bug's Life?) and features the vocal talents of Woody Allen, Sharon Stone, Dan Aykroyd, Gene Hackman, Danny Glover, Jennifer Lopez, Sylvester Stallone, Christopher Walken, Anne Bancroft and a shed load more fine actors. Imagine this many actors in a live-action film, the fees, the makeup, the trailer size contests - I guess doing animation must be a welcome bit of fun, allowing dress-down days too!
The story follows loner ant Z (pronounced zee, not zed!) who feels there should be more to life than his lot as a worker ant. Allen plays the lead, supported well be his best friend and soldier ant Weaver (Stallone). Z's path crosses that of the bored Princess Bala (Stone) whom he desperately wants to see again. Following a little persuasion, Z manages to trade places with Weaver for a place in the soldier's parade - held in front of the royalty! I don't want to give too much of the plot away since you're better off watching but Z's adventures to win the heart of the Princess, battle fierce termites Starship Troopers style, and his all round save-the-day antics are a treat for young and old alike. Kids will love this great cartoon but only adults will catch all of the humour and admire the truly stunning computer animation.
It's a pity this was released only one month before Disney's ant based film and the subsequent press scrutiny they both received in the 'Ant Wars'. They are very different films, just both animated and about ants.

4.0 out of 5 stars NO ANT IS AN ISLAND January 19, 2005
Format:DVD
One has to admire the technical wizardry of this CGI animated film. While ANTZ is not classic material, it still has a moralistic theme: individuality as opposed to conformity. The movie employs some great actors to give voice to the ants and other assorted creatures. Woody Allen as Z is typical Woody, but he propels the story nicely; Sharon Stone gives a droll life to the haughty princess; Anne Bancroft is regal as the Queen; Gene Hackman is stiff, abrasive and effective as General Mandible; Sylvester Stallone gives muscle to his role as the soldier ant Weaver; Jennifer Lopez is slyly sultry as Azteca, a worker ant who falls for Weaver; Dan Ackyroyd and Jane Curtin are briefly seen as a couple of bees; and Danny Glover is a crusty old soldier ant who takes Z under his wings.

The movie is a little violent and has some strong language, so I wouldn't recommend it for younger kidz, but for teens and discriminating adults, ANTZ is an entertaining and extremely well done film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie but is it really for kids? March 16, 2007
Format:DVD
I like the idea of being one person (or ant in this case) and positively impacting a whole community (or ant colony). It is inspiring and hopeful but there is swearing in this. I'm not sure how it is kid friendly when Weaver says "quit your bitching" to Z. Of all the words they could have replaced it with like stop complaining/ stop being irritable, difficult, unreasonable.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is clearly the superior film August 30, 2002
Format:DVD
I had the chance to watch "A bugs life" and "Antz" at the same day, and so I was able to compare the two films, the CG but also the story.
First of, when seeing the two films in cinema back when they were released, I thought that "A bugs life" was a little better from a CG (computer graphics) point of view.
But now that I've seen the two DVDs, I'm absolutely sure that PDI has created a film that looks a lot better than Pixar's "A bugs life". First of, look carefully at how the facial features and the mouth of the antz and other insects are animated. It's just amazing and very life-like. The fact that the ants have teeth (which is pretty funny by the way) also adds a lot to the quality of their facial expressions (the ants in "A bugs life have teeth, too).
Then, the ants in "Antz" are brown while the ants in "A bugs life" are blue (???). Also, everything in Antz has a lot more detail than it has in "A bugs life".
Anyway, CG might be one part, but the story is clearly more important...
AntZ has a very unique story, which is funny but also very clever. "A bugs life" on the other hand has a very ordinary story, very typical for a kids movie but it comes nowhere near the quality of other Disney movies like Mulan. It is funny at times, but the story is neither deep nor is it especially smart.
And last but not least, when I watched AntZ in the cinema back when it was released, there was a little kid and his mum sitting next to me. During the battle scene, the kid asked his mum "are they dead" (pointing at the dead ant bodies) and the mum said "no, they're just sleeping".
SO: This is definitely not a kids movie. It has been rated PG for obvious reasons.
