Critic Reviews of "AntZ"
TIME MagazineSeptember 04, 2008
Kids may be puzzled by rebellious worker ants chanting Marxist slogans, but their parental guides may welcome the relief from the prevailing blandness of family films.
Time OutJune 24, 2006
Visually striking and dynamically shot, this has strong characters and no shortage of incident.
San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
The filmmakers seem to have deliberately snubbed the traditional audience for animated features.
Globe and MailApril 12, 2002
It's a perfect picnic, without the pesky human interference.
Rolling StoneMay 11, 2001
Antz is refreshingly naughty and nice.
Los Angeles TimesFebruary 14, 2001
Antz is brief enough, clocking in at 83 minutes, but its story is too predictable to make an impact even in such a short space.
Common Sense MediaDecember 22, 2010
Great effects, but surprisingly violent. Lacks kid appeal.
Boxoffice MagazineOctober 18, 2008
A Engaging and awe-inspiring animation once again elevates Shrek's world to fantastic heights, and the laughs are just as freewheeling as we have come to expect.
TV GuideSeptember 04, 2008
By any standard, the film is a remarkable technical achievement.
Film4September 04, 2008
The artwork is spectacular, vocal performances uniformly capable and the jokes appealing to both adults and children.
eFilmCritic.comJuly 23, 2007
Appeals to your daydreams when you were a kid and you wondered about the daily physical hassles of an ant.
Combustible CelluloidMay 26, 2006
Though the story is standard formula kids' fare, the Allen presence brings an adult swing to it, making it more than passable for both.
