ANTZ (Theatrical Release USA 1998)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Antz does not play down its storyline to children. While some language moves it into the adult world, this is a great animated movie for everyone. Antz is inspiring, funny, heartfelt, and just plain fun. The story starts out well and holds its own throughout the movie.


Z (voice of Woody Allen), a worker ant, falls in love with Bala (voice of Sharon Stone), a princess ant. He joins the army in hopes of seeing her again.
