    I know this was only Pixar's second full-length movie, but after the height of Toy Story (their greatest film), A Bug's Life is, well, a bit unimpressive.

    Honestly, average animation, the only original part of the movie it's that it is based in ants, not that animated ants didn't exist before this movie. But it's a perfect choice for children 2-5 to watch.

    A bugs life has never been considered one of Pixar's best films, but has also never been considered one of the worst. To begin, a bugs life Is a fun movie and the animation quality gets doubles the quality of toy story. However despite this, a bugs life is not one of Pixar's original ideas. It is also considered a copy of the DreamWorks film: Antz. To add to the problems, the characters inA bugs life has never been considered one of Pixar's best films, but has also never been considered one of the worst.

Altogether, a bugs life is not an original Pixar idea and it may be a enjoyable movie but its problems and unlikableness bring it down to a mixed rating. Expand

    The story, about an ant colony that frees itself from slavery to grasshoppers, is similar in some ways to the autumn's other big animated release, "Antz," but it's aimed at a broader audience and lacks the in-jokes.
  2. The story is amusing and the animation is first-rate, but there's less sparkling originality than in "Toy Story."
  3. Lasseter and Stanton and the rest of the animators and gagsmiths use the computer with staggering imaginative freedom.
