A Movie Reel

Bolt: 4 out of 10.

I caught Bolt in 3D before it hit theatres and wrote about the 3D experience here. The 3D aspect, although a bit much, was distracting enough to make the first third of this film tolerable.

I brought my daughter along and she was thrilled to learn Miley Cyrus was one of the voice actors, but I sensed even she started getting bored as it dragged mid-way through.  Elongated drags in animated features have this magic ability to make 90 minutes feel closer to four hours.

The pigeons are sort of interesting and the hamster is practically funny, but everything else gives weight to the old adage "there's Pixar and there's Pixaren't."
