A BUG’S LIFE (1998) 7MATE, 6.30PM, G, AN­I­MA­TION

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Made around the same time as Dreamworks’ Antz, this Toy Story fol­low-up from dig­i­tal an­i­ma­tion pi­o­neers Pixar is the in­fe­rior of the two in­sect-- world ad­ven­tures. Voice tal­ent in­cludes the usual big-name ac­tors (Kevin Spacey, Ju­lia Louis-Drey­fus and Dave Fo­ley among them), and they wring much en­ter­tain­ment from the script. While it stands up to the stan­dard of tech­ni­cal bril­liance set by Toy Story, what lets it down is the tale it­self, about an ant who de­fends his colony against in­vad­ing bugs. It’s a won­der to look at, but not as clever and whimsical as Mon­sters Inc. ★★★
