Barking madness...By PaulaWestwood (397 reviews) from Ashton-Under-Lyne , 19 Feb 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]Bolt is an all action screen superhero dog who believes the scripted on screen heorics he performs are real life, and he really is saving the little girl who owns him in each episode. Unfortunately the painful truth af his lack of real powers comes to light when outside the studio he believes his owner has been kidnapped, and embarks (em-BARKS - couldnt resist it !!!) on a cross country journey to rescue her. WQe watched this in 3D buth whether or not you do doesnt really mater as in any case this is superbly animated fun that has humour and interest for young and old alike, very entertaining.

Dog. Window. Price?By Rigamortis (102 reviews) from South London , 29 Apr 2012So, you know the deal. Dog plays super-hero mutt, thinks powers are real, gets propelled into real world, finds out powers are bogus. A typical premise for this kind of film. And as much as they keep on making this kind of CGI cartoon fare, they also keeping coming up with first class examples like Bolt. With my technical eye I always appreciate when the 'feel' of a CGI is right. Bolt feels right. The look matches the character of the film and the characters match the voices they are given. These two elements aren't always successfully provided in CGI. Sometimes it takes just one character whose too jarring (i. e. Jar Jarring Binks - personally got nothing against him, but a lot of people expressing H-ate!) to knock the whole film off balance. No such character exists here. And the additional parody of the world of make believe hits the mark as keenly as the ideologically similar Truman show. But, there are also elements that bring other CGI animations to mind. Despite the non-musical nature of the film there is one point when I half expected one of the characters to break away from their sob story and give us a new rendering of Toy Story's 'When somebody loved me' (you'll know it when you see it). However, as I've often said, well executed derivation is no theft. And just how many truly original ideas and scenarios are there? Sing me version 243 of Yesterday, but please do it well. That's all I ask. Where Bolt has to be similar to something, it at least has the courtesy to try and make it fresh. And you also get the essential funny side kick that outshines everyone else when they appear. I won't need to point out who that is. Some of the staging makes me wish I'd seen it in 3D. I just know this film would work that dimension like a catwalk diva - often tempermental with flashes of perfection. Please pick up this puppy (oh, the wit), take it for walkies (getting desperate now) and you'll find it a great companion (aaaah!). Okay, done!
