Not the same level as 'Antz' but worth seeing

Pixar's first feature movie 'Toy Story' was a critical and box office success. Pixar then decided to make a movie about bugs which is what DreamWorks was planning too. So it was a race to see who got there first and 'Antz' did. Personally I preferred 'Antz'. 'A Bug's Life' is not the same level as 'Antz' but I still think it is worth seeing!

A Bug’s Life

Not the most essential of the Pixar films for me, but proof that Pixar has provided smart and funny films that someone will love. While I find A Bug’s Life to be good but not great, I know people who love this one the most. And that is what makes Pixar the towering giant for our current animated landscape.

The story is a play off of Aesop’s fable about the ant and the grasshoppe... read more

Amazing loose remake of a masterpiece from Pixar.

After the giant success 3 years before which was Toy Story, expectations was incredibly high for A Bug's Life. Admittedly, no it didn't reach up to Toy Story's level but my oh my! It wasn't that far from it. I absolutely loved it when I first saw it as a child and I have grown up with this one and still love it now. This perhaps rivalled with Antz in 1998 seeing as they were both released in the s... read more

A Bug's Life is a frolicsome and funny family film about the virtues of individuality and imagination. A group of grasshoppers assaults every summer the ant colony where Flick lives, to seize the supplies they have collected during the winter. One day, Flick leaves the nest and goes in search of insect warriors to help them fend off the fearsome grasshoppers, but in the end, just recruiting a circus troupe.

Bml93's Film Experiences for 2017: Last Half (33 movies items)

" It's fine. There are a few funny moments in it and some of the characters are amusing. The story is quite familiar, even for an early Pixar outing, and the film turns out to be exactly what you expect it to be. There's not really that much to say about it. It's an okay watch, but not something I would really see again."

An average movie

“Unfortunately, it seems that Pixar has lost their magical touch as they nowadays focus mostly on sequels which might be profitable but also artistically rather boring. On the other hand, for about almost 15 years in a row, up until ‘Up’, those guys had an amazing track-record and they really spoiled us as they kept releasing one masterpiece after another. In this Golden Age, they still had a few misfires though and this movie was one of them. Indeed, to be honest, I never really cared about this flick even if I should probably re-watch it some day but I'm not really optimistic. Basically, back then, DreamWorks released their first CGI animated feature and it happened to be also about bugs so there was a big debate about which one would be the best. Apparently, Pixar's effort was slight” read more

30 From 98: My Favorite Films From 1998 (30 movies items)

"For it's time, A Bug's Life, along with it's sister computer-created crawlies cartoon Antz, was the next step in the advancing technology of 3D animation. The medium made good use of the physical aspects that make up the distinctions of the insect world to create the individual personalities that allow the main characters to come to life. This these types of movies during the late 90's were progressing examples that were revealing the extent of what computer graphics could to do within the visu"
