My Movie Review on A Bug’s Life · 2:09pm Sep 11th, 2019

Greetings and salutations, my friends.

This is your friendly film, TV show, and episode reporter here with another review.

And today, following my previous review on Dreamworks's "Antz", I'll be giving an analysis on Pixar's "A Bug's Life".

Here's the summary of this movie:

Flik is an ant who makes many inventions and is willing to help his colony any way he can, but his efforts always end with bad results.

When one of his inventions causes the offering the colony made for a gang of grasshoppers, lead by the tyrannical Hopper, to be destroyed, Flik makes it his mission to find warrior bugs capable of standing up to the grasshoppers and protecting the colony.

Meanwhile, though, a group of circus performers, who similarly mess things up no matter how much they try, were recently fired by their employer, P.T. Flea, following a performance gone wrong.

When Flik and the circus group come across one another, it's one misunderstanding after another for everyone as the clock ticks until Hopper and his gang return.

Will Flik and the performers come up with a way to drive the grasshoppers away for good? Better yet, how long can they keep up the act that Flik did something right for once and that the circus troupe are warriors?

Having watched this movie while having a very relaxing Labor Day, I really must say that this film is better than "Antz" in every way!

For instance, the comedy aspect of this film was downright hilarious! Every gag that was executed was so funny and well-worked, I laughed every step of the way.

The story by John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, and Joe Ranft, and the screenplay by Stanton, Donald McEnery, and Bob Shaw, was marvelously accomplished too. The same with the direction by Lasseter and Stanton.

Each person was not only able to make this movie extraordinarily funny, they were also able to make it something heartfelt, meaningful, and emotionally compelling. They additionally did a great job at making everything so marvelously character-driven, that you can't help but wonder where the story will be taken next.

The voice-acting, casting, characters, and character development were all extraordinary too. The performers and characters were even accompanied by some fantastic dialogue.

When it comes to singling out whom I think gave the best performances, I've been finding that to be hard to decide because everyone was so amazing. However, I definitely thought that Denis Leary's outstanding performance and comedic-timings gave his character of Francis the Ladybug a lot of the best moments, and Kevin Spacey's portrayal of Hopper made his character quite an intimidating force to be reckoned with. Along with that, Dave Foley, Julia-Louis Dreyfus, and Richard Kind brought such astounding emotion, heart, personality, and life to their characters of Flik, Princess Atta, and Molt, with a side of perfect comedic-timings. Might I also add that Michael McShane's performance as both Tuck and Roll Pillbug brothers was absolutely hilarious.

The developments of each and every character in the film was likewise awesome, the most powerful of them coming from that of Flik, Princess Atta, and the Circus bugs.

The animation that Pixar created for this film was groundbreakingly amazing, just like their previous work in Toy Story. If their mission was to push themselves to where viewers can immediately feel like they're in the world of the film, I would love to one day say to them in person "Mission Accomplished!", with a thumbs up. It's much more than I can say in contrast to Dreamworks's "Antz". Nothing personal, I just think Pixar's effort with "A Bug's Life" was better.

Finally, it all comes down to the music composed by Randy Newman. I really must say, Newman was able to really kill it with composing for this film. He didn't restrain himself from making his work on "Toy Story" his only acclaimed effort. He pushed himself to go bigger and deeper than before, and he did a marvelous job at doing so. He did a great job at making his work on the film unique and different from "Toy Story" too.

In conclusion, "A Bug's Life" proves itself to be another absolute joy from Pixar, thanks to its astounding cast and characters, funny and heartfelt story, etc. If it was put in a boxing match with "Antz", it would beat the latter by a knockout.

So, I rate Pixar's "A Bug's Life" a solid five out of five stars.

Pretend this movie is a seed. And from this seed, a mighty tree will grow. That tree turned out to be Pixar.

You know, at one point I wanted them to make a sequel to this film when I was a kid. But now I realize that this film doesn't need a sequel.

And then it got chopped down and turned into paper for Disney offices. :derpytongue2:

I saw this a really long time ago, so I don’t remember it particular well, but it’s really good! I will probably watch it again eventually, though. :twilightsmile:

This was a great movie when I finally got around to seeing it.

I'm gonna miss you, Heimlich 🐛
