Kids may be puzzled by rebellious worker ants chanting Marxist slogans, but their parental guides may welcome the relief from the prevailing blandness of family films.
Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine  full review
 
Visually striking and dynamically shot, this has strong characters and no shortage of incident.
Geoff Andrew, Time Out  full review
 
The filmmakers seem to have deliberately snubbed the traditional audience for animated features.
Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
It's a perfect picnic, without the pesky human interference.
Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail  full review
 
Antz is refreshingly naughty and nice.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
 
Antz is brief enough, clocking in at 83 minutes, but its story is too predictable to make an impact even in such a short space.
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
The computer animation is first rate and filled with the kind of "Wow! Look at that!" wizardry that is eventually going to make Toy Story look about as technically sophisticated as South Park.
Naomi Ryerson, Mr. Showbiz
 
Antz is about the relief felt by star actors freed from the constraints of their physical selves and the egos that go with them.
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly  full review
 
It's a well-written, witty tale, expertly executed!
Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune
 
An excellent piece of work!
Peter Brunette, Film.com
 
Visually, it's more impressive than Disney's Toy Story. On a script level, it was developed as much with a mature audience in mind as with the usual pre-pubescent crowd.
James Berardinelli, ReelViews  full review
 
Distinctive, delightful!
Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune
 
Antz works best just showing off its prodigious voice talent and playing lightheartedly with the curious possibilities of a buggy world.
Janet Maslin, New York Times  full review
 
It's fresh, exhilarating, funny, able to tell an old story in a beguiling new way!
Jay Carr, Boston Globe
 
It enters into a microscopic world and makes it into a world so vast and threatening that comparisons with Star Wars are not unjustified!
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
 
The kids will like it. You'll laugh.
Janelle Brown, Salon.com  full review
 
A dazzling delight!
Todd McCarthy, Variety  full review
 
Antz takes a huge step forward for computer animation!
Susan Stark, Detroit News  full review
 
Allen provides plenty of comic relief, and the computer-generated animation is pretty impressive.
Paul Tatara, CNN.com  full review
