A Bug's Life

A small ant colony has been virtually enslaved by the tyranny of a grasshopper gang. led by an egomaniac who demands that the ants spend their free time gathering food for the grasshoppers to eat during their frequent stopovers. Despite outnumbering the grasshoppers, most of the ants never question the relationship between nature's creations. One, however, questions everything. Deeply individualistic, inventive and clever, he is forever urging the rest of the ants to think progressively, with overzealous admonishments that serve to annoy more than inspire. And so they start a revolution...

Rudy de Sousa: Excellent computer graphics and great storyline.

Graeme Smith: Great entertainment for the young and old. Great animation. Funny dialogue and great voice talents. In the end it is good, but not as good as 'Antz'.

Leigh Pingo: Brilliant graphics.

Leon Potgieter: Best Animated ever. It's excellent.

Carlize Griezel: Exellent.

Vanessa Govender: Excellent animation.

Vicki Bruce: Excellent movie. Can't wait for it to come out on video. My children (including 13 month old) loved it. Very enjoyable.

Ina Van Molendorff: Great!!

Ryan Ambrose: Brilliant storyline accentuated by phenomenal animation. The realism in Antz was superior, but the story for Bug's Life definately overuled. Excellent entertainment for all ages.

Lindsay LaLonde: Great movie! Beats Antz by a mile! The plot is great, the characters are adorable, and it's just a great movie! Definitely one of Disney's best!

Inge Schmidt: Very entertaining!
