[Warning: Spoilers]



I just watched it today. The animation was wonderful but I thought, for a kids movie, it could have been funnier. The hamster was annoying and unnecessary, in my opinion.



I'm glad Disney decided to expose how even animals in entertainment get abused; maybe it'll get through to some kids. I wish they would have put more focus on the declawed cat, though. People really need to understand what they're putting their "beloved pet" through. That part really made me sick...



Anyway, who's seen it and what are your thoughts?

I really liked it. I even got a little teary which never happens to me with movies. I thought it was sweet and well done.

I got teary twice in that film and that rarely happens to me, too! Glad I saw it in a cinema with the lights dimmed



I thought the film was very good on many levels. Good writing, good story, some very very funny moments and I really connected with the characters, which is odd in a kids film. My 9 year old nephew really liked it a lot, too.

I think I was in a snarky mood when I first posted... haha, sorry.



I know I complained but I really did enjoy it. The animation alone made it worth watching, for me.

Better than Wall-E, in my humble, yet probably controversial, opinion. I would put this up there with the best Pixar movies and Lilo and Stitch.

My mom loved the hamster....I didn't really care much for him. Rhino was too annoying for my tastes.



But I admit, I even got teary near the end. And that's one of the few movies I have.



I love the soundtrack for the movie (mainly the music when Bolt saves Penny at the end).
