For super-dog "Bolt", every day is filled with adventure, danger and intrigue - at least until the cameras stop rolling. When the star of a hit TV show is accidentally shipped from his Hollywood soundstage to New York City, he begins his biggest adventure yet - a cross-country journey through the real world to get back to his owner and co-star, Penny. Armed only with the delusions that all his amazing feats and powers are real, and the help of two unlikely traveling companions -- a jaded, abandoned housecat named Mittens and a TV-obsessed hamster named Rhino -- Bolt discovers he… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Disney's first 3D animation, made under new head John Lasseter, is a likeable, dynamic and seductively characterised family entertainment."
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"Belief may be in question for much of the movie -- only for the perturbed pooch -- but fortunately, enjoyment is never a problem."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Restores some faith that there are some creative minds left in animated films that Pixar hasn't added to its talent pool."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"Wait... an all-star voice cast for a computer-animated story we've never heard of before, and it's watchable, too?"
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"...a fairly winning animated endeavor."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"That it falls short of Pixar's lofty heights doesn't mean the attempt isn't worthwhile; indeed, Bolt is the most entertaining and well-crafted Disney Animation movie in years."
‑ Dan Kois, Washington Post
"In the pre-Thanksgiving lull, parents can take their young'uns to Bolt, drop their 10-to-14-year-olds off at Twilight, and the whole family will have survived the weekend."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"It's sophisticated look is rich with details that are easy to take for granted, but which add immeasurably to the texture and dimension of the scenes."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
"A touch slight by Disney standards, but even if it's not high art, it's still warm-and-fuzzy fun."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"What Bolt lacks in originality it makes up for in execution."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"The 3-D process is an enhancement, even though it's used with little verve or ingenuity. But the movie's terms are severely limited too."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Although it doesn't reach the heights of Finding Nemo or The Incredibles, it's a masterpiece compared with Disney's 2002 Treasure Island."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"The latest generation of animated flicks is a sort of latter-day vaudeville revue. Kiddies who take Bolt to heart may conclude not only that dogs really do have superpowers, but also that everybody's in showbiz."
‑ Mark Jenkins,
"Bolt marks Disney's long awaited re-emergence as a top-dog in the world of animation."
‑ Anders Wotzke, Moviedex
"Unmistakably bears the conflicting influence of Pixar and Disney's old ideals."
‑ Jeffrey Bloomer, Paste Magazine
