Bolt to the Cinema

By  |  0 Comments

Disney’s latest animated film, Bolt, has been released in British cinemas. Having already been released in the US in time for its holiday season, Bolt has been nominated for an Oscar.

Bolt is a canine super-hero with special powers, such as, a bark that can blast away cars, laser-eyes and an ability jump high and far soaring through the air. At least that’s what Bolt thinks, in fact he’s the star of a fictional TV series.

Thinking the show is real, Bolt (John Travolta) escapes his trailer in an attempt to rescue the kidnapped Penny (Miley Cyrus). Bolt accidentally gets parceled off to New York, so he enlists help and learns to get by with his real abilities.

This is classic Disney: someone gets lost, there’s a long journey, the evil TV villain is reminiscent of Cruella D’Ville, there are pigeons that remind me of the crows in Dumbo and of course the hero is a popular choice of animal. A great film nonetheless for half-term.

Bolt is on general release now with a PG rating due to “…mild threat and scary moments.” A 3D version is being shown in selected cinemas.
