Bolt, an American White Shepherd, has lived his whole life on the set of his action TV show, where he believes he has superpowers. In Bolt's last taping, Penny, his person, is captured by the evil Green-Eyed Man. When separated from the studio by accident, Bolt lands in New York City and he must find his way back to Penny to save her. On the way he meets a female alley cat named Mittens and a hamster named Rhino. Together, the trio tries to make their way back to Hollywood, discovering that everyone can be a superhero, even if they don't have powers.
John Travolta as Bolt
Miley Cyrus as Penny
To be honest, it's no Finding Nemo or Cars, but Bolt is a very charming story with interesting characters and a great message. There is enough adult-targeted humor and situations to keep us happy and kids will certainly enjoy this movie from beginning to end. Pixar has definitely hit the mark with this one. They have been dealing out hit after hit ever since '95 with Toy Story. I hope it keeps up with their next movies, Up (2009) and Toy Story 3 (2010).
4 out of 5 stars
