A Bug's Life
An epic presentation of miniature proportions.
On behalf of "oppressed bugs everywhere," an inventive ant named Flik hires a troupe of warrior bugs to defend his bustling colony from a horde of freeloading grasshoppers led by the evil-minded Hopper.
niggas cant talk shit on a Bugs Life.
A really underrated Pixar film. Felt great to relive one of my childhood favorites. It has a solid story that feels a bit elongated at times, but overall is very entertaining. The voice cast is great and the animation looks amazing on this blu-ray copy. It's been such a long time since I've seen this and it really felt great to watch it.
I find it amazing that out of all the Seven Samurai remakes I've seen (this, Magnificent Seven, Dirty Dozen, etc) I've never actually seen the original Seven Samurai. If Seven Samurai is as outstanding as those remakes, I cannot wait to see it.
Ever since I was a kid, I have absolutely loved this film and I probably always will.
A Bug's Life is consistently entertaining, even if it's probably Pixar's most ignored film. The voice cast is great in their roles and the visuals showcase vibrant colors throughout, it's beautifully animated. Much of the humor is juvenile and the climax runs on too long for its own good, but the film is perfectly enjoyable. However, unlike many other Pixar movies, I feel that kids will probably like this more than adults.
After the critically and commercially successful ‘Toy Story’, also the film that proved high quality animations can be produced through computer imagery and at full film runtime, Pixar produced a second animated feature that not only raised the scope, the scale and storyline of the first but also their stand in the world of animation production. This film was ‘A Bugs Life’ and was released into direct competition with Dreamworks ‘Antz’ - a movie dealing with the same environment. However, through creating a much better result in the finished article, Pixar was able to distance themselves from what would lead to be their ultimate competitors.
Set in the undergrowth, ‘A Bugs Life’ centers on a colony of harvest ants who…

Probably some of the best animation I have ever seen but I'm surprised to find that the movie's overatted and stupid and made for babies.
With hilarious characters, a great premise and perhaps the best villain in the Pixar canon, A Bug's Life is one of animation's absolute best efforts.
Haven't seen this since I was a kid and the first thing I have to say is wow Hopper does not mess around. What an underrated Disney villain. The rest of the characters are fun and witty enough for an occasional laugh.
Every company has their failures, and I think it's kind of ironic that a company as successful as Pixar has been saw their first almost right off the bat. 'A Bug's Life' is one of the weaker efforts Pixar has produced. The animation feels kind of rushed despite the impressive landscape, but the primary issue is that the film lacks heart and that's where it falters. In some ways it's a modern take on Akira Kurosawa's 'Seven Samurai', but to compare the two films further would be undermining Kurosawa's work and I won't do that. A lot of the jokes don't really work, and that's a big problem when you don't find yourself really caring much about the characters or feeling pulled in by the nature of the plot. The film is clever at times, but that's about the most I can say for it. Also, didn't 'Antz' come out literally right before this?
"You let one ant stand up to us, and they all might stand up! Those 'puny little ants' outnumber us a hundred to one. And if they ever figure that out, there goes our way of life! It's not about food. It's about keeping those ants in line."
The leap in the animation from Toy Story to A Bug's Life is quite amazing. Gone are some clunky or awkward look and movement. Everything is detailed, smooth, and beautiful, which must be quite a challenge since they had to animate the nature in close-up. From the underground ant cave, to the cracked earth that separates the island from other places, to the potentially fatal rain, the movie never fails to be…
Fun Pixar movie with plenty of humor and entertaining story. The animation looks simple compared with subsequent movies.
