A review of the movie, Bolt from a Christian perspective.
Movie Title: Bolt
Director: Byron Howard and Chris Williams
Staring: the voices of John Travolta; Miley Cyrus; Mark Walton; and Susie Essman
Christian Perspective Rating: 5 out of 5 stars – AWESOME!
Intro: I had not really paid that much attention to the trailer for Bolt, so I was really “out of the loop” when the movie began. When you see it, you will know what I mean. Very exciting. I thought it was “real.” LOL!
Review: Bolt was a great movie. I loved it and so did both of my girls. We saw it right after The Tale of Despereaux and we thought Bolt was a MUCH better movie and WAY more kid friendly! No dark weird stuff.
The humor in Bolt is fantastic. Kids and parents were laughing. Very funny. Bolt was clueless, which made him funny to watch. Mittens was witty and sarcastic (my fav), and Rhino the hamster was hysterical. All together, it was a priceless cast!
There was some action violence that you would want to discuss with little ones. However, nothing very dark and nothing outrageous. The usual hero v/s bad guys stuff.
The only scene that I thought was not necessary was about how they gave Bolt (imaginary movie land Bolt) a dose of “science” to enhance his abilities. Basically making Bolt a super dog. It gave the aura of drugs…sort of. The kids will probably miss that though. I have to notice everything since I’m reviewing. LOL!
Conclusion: All in all, Bolt is a great movie of courage, loyalty, friendship and the power of love. The message is positive and the hero comes out on top. Great family movie!
