The opening to this movie is so cute and the second half is A journey trip back home. the animation is amazing and colorful as always and the characters are pretty damn enjoyable.

Saw this when it first came out since this reviewer is a self confessed dog lover. The story gets going and keeps you engeged. Voices of Bolt (John Travolta) and Penny (Miley Cyrus) were applicable and believable. Bolt is a fun, smart and wonderfully created family animation that can be enjoyed by anyone.

This is a very fun watch. It does not measure up to PIXAR, and doesn't deliver the comedy punches of the later Dreamworks films. The characters are very cute and are enjoyable to watch. A little cheesy at times, but that is alright. But this is still a must-see for families. If you are an adult with no kids to watch it with, you can skip this one, unlike some the better PIXAR titles

This is a well done kids movie. John Travolta is very well cast as Bolt the wonder dog. Complete with a hilarious hamster named rhino this movie is very entertaining. The only week points are in the beginning Bolt is shipped in a box from LA to New York with no real issues. Who would have thought you could mail a dog in a box of packing peanuts. The other problem is Miley Cyrus. She is very poorly cast in the part of Penny, Bolt's owner. Her voice does not match the age of the character and she is not a very good voice actress. Outside of these two issues the movie is absolutely great with a good story and good execution. A great movie for adults and kids.

One of the Best Animated Films of 2008

Im surprised how fun this movie was considering its not made by Pixar. From beginning to end, it was able to provide its audiences unabashed cuteness, genuine laughter, and heart. All of the components of the film seemed to fit together like an intricate but highly rewarding puzzle. The voices of Bolt (John Travolta) and Penny (Miley Cyrus) are recognizable but never distracting; the soundtrack in each momentous scene manages to touch the right emotions; the jokes are wide-ranging (considering it comments on the inner-workings of Hollywood) but never out-of-place; and the story offers something for kids, adults, and everything inbetween. Not to mention the supporting characters, Mittens (Susie Essman) and Rhino (Mark Walton), are as interesting as the main characters. What made this fil...
