REVIEWS

 

Los Angeles Times says, “”Antboy” is peppered with fun, cleverly shot and edited action bits as well as apropos comic-book style visuals. But it’s the film’s well-wrought themes of friendship, self-esteem and responsibility that give this little adventure its ultimate power.”

The Seattle Times notes, “A few unfamiliar touches suggest where the movie might have gone.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is “Mostly winning kids’ fare, but flat-footed dubbing keeps the fantasy earthbound.”

One Guy’s Opinion writes, “It’s hardly a great children’s movie, but the young actors are a pleasant enough bunch that at least you don’t feel like squashing it.”

Nerdist thinks, “It’s this kind of schlock that contains the true spirit of what film is. Antboy, oh Antboy, you’re keeping something alive.”

Film Journal International says, “Hey there, there goes a mostly bland but very kid-friendly Spider-Man clone.”
