ANTZ (Theatrical Release USA 1998)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

does not play down its storyline to children. While some language moves it into the adult world, this animated movie performs for everyone. Antz, inspiring, funny, heartfelt, and just plain fun, starts well and holds its good start throughout the movie.
