BOLT is the latest animated film from Disney and it's a delight to watch. You'll probably recognize some of the character's voices, particularly John Travolta as Bolt, but ultimately you are caught up in the story and action of the movie and it's now the characters themselves you are focused on. Bolt is the star of a television series about a little girl, Penny, and her dog who have to save her kidnapped dad, a scientist, from the clutches of the evil Green Eyed Man. The dad has altered Bolt to become a super dog with super speed, ray gun eyes, super strength and a sound wave producing bark. The series is a hit but as fate would have it, Bolt is accidently shipped across the country and he must start a quest to return to Hollywood and his human, Penny. Along the way he hooks up with a street wise cat, Mittens, and a hampster, Rhino and together they trek across America experiencing a series of mishaps along the way. The animation is great, the story is good and although there are some intense scenes of peril for the characters, it's an enjoyable film for almost all ages.
