Overview

Thanks to his starring role on a hit television show, Bolt the pooch has become a household name. But Bolt has bought into his own heroic image, now believing that he really possesses the super-canine powers of his fictional television series. When he's accidentally shipped from Hollywood to New York City, he must rely on the help from his two newfound friends -- an abandoned house cat named Mittens voiced by Susie Essman and a television-addicted hamster named Rhino voice of Mark Walton -- as he embarks on a cross-country quest to get back to his owner and co-star, Penny voice of Miley Cyrus.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Sometimes a story is so beautifully simple that it's impossible to muck it up, and the animated 3-D Bolt is a perfect example. The premise: A cute little dog named Bolt John Travolta and his loving tween-girl owner, Penny Disney It Girl Miley Cyrus, are the stars of a hit action TV show about a small white German shepherd with superpowers. The producers of the show believe the program's success stems from Bolt's realistic "acting," so to that end, they never let the canine star in on the fact that he's on a TV show, hiding all the cameras and crew so that Bolt grows up thinking he really does have heat vision, a super bark, and the ability to stop trucks with his head. One day, thanks to a series of misunderstandings and misfortunes, Bolt accidentally gets mailed to New York City, sending him on an adventure-filled cross-country journey back to Penny in Hollywood. During his trek, Bolt learns the truth about himself, and makes new friends in the form of a streetwise alley cat and an overly enthusiastic hamster. The opening of the movie brilliantly establishes the TV show's fictional world -- the one Bolt thinks is real -- with a superb ten-minute action sequence straight out of a family-friendly Jerry Bruckheimer movie. Bolt, with his super speed, and Penny, atop her tricked-out scooter, evade helicopters, motorcyclists, and a ticking time bomb, all while speeding along a busy California freeway. There is a kinetic pop to the whole scene, especially when the occasional slow-mo shot lets you see exactly how much time is left before the bomb explodes. This opening does such a good job of setting the fun and snappy tone for the rest of the movie not to mention taking thrillingly full advantage of the 3-D format that the generic family-movie elements that come later on don't feel so tedious to grownups or boring to kids. And as the story unfolds, Bolt's slow acceptance that he doesn't have special powers provides twists on the old finding-your-way-back-home plot, so the movie amuses both those who make up the film's target audience and the parents along for the ride. This winning mix of exciting action, heart-tugging sentiment, and gentle character comedy makes Bolt yet another solid addition to Disney's history of family-friendly fare.

    You Become The Character

    The premise is great. Bolt plays a dog with super powers so long that he really believes he is the character. Lots of drama and fun with buddies in tow.

    Masterpiece! Highly underrated!

    This movie is so well done and entertaining it is easy to overlook that it is one of the deeper movies, philosophically, ever made. The central theme is deception -- and the effect that that can have on the indivdual. This is how propaganda works. This relates to the behavior of the peoples of Germany and Japan during World War II; your behavior is governed by what you believe to be true. It would be easy to do a Masters thesis on this movie, which shows ever greater depth and detail with each viewing -- IF you look for it. Walt Disney himself would have loved and been very proud of this movie, and the animation is the best I have ever seen. My wife and I have been buying the movie in quantity lately and giving copies to friends. Most had never heard of it. They all love it. Disney should consider a rerelease at a time when it would not be coming out directly opposite a Pixar feature -- this one was released at about the same time as "Wall-E". Interestingly, Bolt himself was modeled (very accurately) on the American white German Shepherd, as anyone who knows German Shepherds will probably figure out for themselves! -- Eric Norberg, Portland, Oregon

    My son loves this movie

    He had to watch it almost every night for a long time. He still asks for it a lot. I usually get into it as he watches it too.

    Energetic Entertainment

    Bolt was great, and endearing. The storyline was entertaining, plenty of action and adventure. The supporting cast of "characters" was funny, the pigeons were a riot. If you're looking for family fun for movie night get this one. John T. did well as Bolt. Grab your movie snacks and your family and enjoy neat animation.

    Bolt is the BEST!!

    This is an awesome movie. I'm 40 years old and don't have kids. I'm a huge animal lover though, so of course I had to get this movie. I cracked up the whole time! John Travolta made a great "Bolt". The cat and the hamster are great side kicks. The story line is great too. I have a 5 year old neice and we watched it together 3 times. She loved it too. And the inspirational part of the movie is never give up. And don't think that all people are bad. When you watch the movie, you'll understand that people commemt. On a scale of 1 to 10...I give it a 20!! Get it and you will definately watch it more then once. You will get such kick out of the hamster. The graphics are great too! AAA+++

    Had a nice time watching it

    A dog, BOLT, who is the star of a TV show where he has superpowers, doesn¿t know it¿s all make believe. <BR/><BR/>When Bolt is separated from his owner and shipped to New York, he slowly starts to realize that his powers are a fantasy, thinking that the powers of Styrofoam are responsible.<BR/><BR/>It must be hard to make a story like this work, while satisfying our logic. But the filmmakers allow us to put logic aside and enjoy.<BR/><BR/>Writer-directors, Chris Williams and Byron Howard deliver an entertaining movie. <BR/><BR/>Voices of John Travolta and Miley Cyrus give it much energy.
