Mini-Review: Bolt

Directed by Byron Howard & Chris Williams
Released November 21, 2008

A dog who stars in a popular television series escapes from the confines of the set and takes on the whole world without his superpowers in one of this year’s biggest animated films. John Travolta and Miley Cyrus provide voices for dog Bolt and his real-life costar Penny, and it’s a surprisingly entertaining film that should decently satisfy children and adults alike. Scenes from the show-within-a-movie itself are particularly exciting and engaging while the rest of the movie is better than might be expected. The story is appropriately childish but it’s far more fun than perhaps it should have been, and that’s a huge credit to the film.
