    'BOLT' - MiceChat reviews



    I just returned from an advance screening of the film.

    Congratulations to all at Walt Disney Animation Studios!

    'Bolt' is a hero worthy of adopting and very easy to take the journey with.

    The look of the film from the animals' fur to the unique colors and textures of locations ranging from Silver Lake to New York, rural Ohio, sun-bleached Las Vegas to Hollywood's backlots is dazzling. The work of Art Director Paul Felix and his team is fully realized here and lives up to the next great steps forward in the Studio's storied history.



    Walt Disney Animation Studios

    The cast delivers simply fun performances. John Travolta as Bolt and Susie Essman's (of hilariously profane 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' fame) Mittens have a ball, Mark Walton's Rhino is in one and Miley Cyrus gives heartfelt, heartstrings life to Penny, Bolt's person.

    The Gillian Welch song is terrific and the Miley/John end-credits duet set to a very cute, completely different, almost childlike, style of animation sets the right bouncy exit tone.

    The script (co-written by Chris Williams and Dan Fogelman) is truly funny, warm, exciting and will surprise you. Calling cats "degenerate creatures of evil" (to big laughs from the kids in the theatre) gives you a sense as to the playfulness of it all. And wonderful Pixar-esque details are sprinkled throughout, particularly on a certain dog's tag, on through the Production Babies credits!

    Expect box-office business (and hamster sales) to be swift.

    And yes, Rhino is BeAwesome!

    'Bolt' opens in theatres November 21

    definitely a worthwhile movie, its getting closer to pixar quality and what disney used to be not quite 100 percent yet but i would put it at 85 percent!

    It is a great film i really hope that the large online Disney community backs the Walt Disney animation studio this time around and really make this movie a success.

    I really hope we could push this movie way way ahead of anything that the madasgascar sequal does.

    Re: 'BOLT' - MiceChat reviews

    I forwarded a copy of the review in the OP here to one of the filmmakers at Walt Disney Animation Studios that worked on 'BOLT'.
    Here is his response:

    That's a great review and it was really exciting to read it! I can't wait to forward it along to some of the other guys that worked on the film. We just had the wrap party this weekend and we're all really proud of this film. So much work went into this film and we're all really happy with the way it turned out. Thank you so much for your kind words!
    FYI - A number of Special Sneak Previews of 'BOLT' are scheduled for this weekend, check your local listings for theatres (they'll list which offer Disney Digital 3D) and showtimes.

    The film has it's World Premiere at The El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood Monday night and opens in theatres on November 21st.

    Re: 'BOLT' - MiceChat reviews

    I'll be seeing it tonight, but it doesn't look like it will be shown in 3D at my theater for this preview. Which is very odd, seeing as how they do have 3DX equipped theaters in it.

    But, I can wait for that aspect of it, when it is fully released, and in one of the bigger theaters that have the 3DX projectors.

    I may I just say: I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED THAT I GET TO SEE BOLT TONIGHT!!!!!!! *squee*

    NNL and I are seeing it tonight also. We're both excited and can't wait!

    EDIT: We both saw it and loved it! Rhino was indeed a wonderful character and now we both want Rhino plushes!

    Great job, WDAS!

    Saw it tonight. Thought it was cute and pretty funny. I cried at the end (but I'm a sap).
    Rhino was funny but not my fave part... I really liked Mittens and Bolt was freaking adorable. Miley Cyrus drives me nuts! That is all
