Bolt - Movie Review

Bolt (PG) 96 minutes B
The Last Action Hero

Starring John Travolta, Miley Cyrus, Susie Essman, Mark Walton, Diedrich Bader, Malcolm McDowell, and Nick Swardson

I'm 36 years old, no children, and I don't have much desire to see Disney films. But Bolt is an entertaining film for all ages. Bolt is an adorable doggy who believes that he is the superhero he portrays on television, but when he finds himself off the set of his hit TV show for the first time he's introduced to the harsh reality that he's just an ordinary dog... or is he?

The film also features some excellent supporting roles by wise-cracking birds, Rhino the hamster, and the scene stealer - Mittens the cat. The film appears to break no new ground stylistically, but it effectively entertains and even tugs on the heart strings a little.
