"Disney Has Some Serious Competition"
5 stars (Awesome)

Antz (****) - This is truly one of the most extraordinary visual achievements in films history. You can clearly see hints of it in the film's trailers - but just when you think the envelope can't be pushed any further during the movie - it goes to a place you'd never expect - piling detail upon detail - until it's almost suffocating.

To discuss all the complexities of the animation would be pointless since it is the greatest treat to discover it yourself as you watch the film - but it's amazingly enjoyable on a story level as well. Some of the lines provided by Woody Allen in this film are among the funniest I've heard all year and while it's quite obvious that young kids will like it - adults will love it. The social commentary mixed with hilarious dialogue and exciting action sequences make it one of the year's best films and provides a lot of the actors who lend their voices to the project, their best roles in years (i.e. Sylvester Stallone). x
