This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. In 1995, the very first computer-animated film came out: Toy Story. It got universal acclaim, and was the highest-grossing film of the year. Worldwide. Then in 1998, there's this. In terms of style, Antz is a huge departure from Toy Story. There is an astounding amount of profanity for a CGI film, there's a lot of violence, and it is implied that one of the soilder ants r**** another ant (so says imdb). Toy Story is a fun film for the whole family. This is not.
This idea is not original. A former Disney employee, during production of A Bug's Life, left and took the story with him. His name was Jeff Katzenburg. I think that's the guy who almost led Toy Story into ruins. See the Black Friday Reel of Toy Story. Then you'll know what I'm talking about . So the guy who I THINK almost made Toy Story a horrible film went to Dreamworks and created "Antz" a more violent, less family-friendly "A Bug's Life" with termites instead of grasshoppers. And I really think kids should not be hearing the swear words said in the movie , especially the b word. Well, at least the producers knew better then to put the f-bomb. There are good things about this movie. It made CGI water possible. And Woody Allen's in it. That's a good thing. And the ants look more realistic than they do in "A Bug's Life". There are several other good things about this movie, but I don't feel like saying them. This movie is uneven yet watchable. Luckily, Dreamworks redeemed itself in 2001, with the hilarious film called "Shrek".

I cannot say I preferred it to A Bug's Life at all, but it does have something special to it--perhaps it is rooted in the incredible voice cast and pop standards.

This isn't a children's film; nor is it much of an adult's film either. You'll snicker, you might be mildly entertained, but, in the end, you won't know what to make of it.

Swearing in a children's film is frowned upon by most parents. The movie was nothing special, just another misfit bug with a hopeless crush on the colony's princess, resembling "A Bug's Life" slightly.

Althought Antz is sweet and funny, it unfortunately lacks that depth and remarkable sense of warmth that makes the Pixar films so wonderful and rewatchable.

The film just only clocks about an hour and a half. But its plot, scenes and characters are as not as good as A Bug's Life but still, probably good after all.

A good movie, but very forgettable. The characters had great voice actors, so that was a plus. The story started good, and ended good, but the middle wasn't.
