7/10
Comedy . Adventure . Family . Animation
 

Bolt is the star of the biggest show in Hollywood. The only problem is, he thinks the whole thing is real. When the super dog is accidentally shipped to New York City and separated from Penny, his beloved co-star and owner, Bolt springs into action to find his way home. Together with hilarious new sidekick Rhino, Bolt's #1 fan, and a street-smart cat named Mittens, Bolt sets off on an amazing journey where he discovers he doesn't need super powers to be a hero.

  • Robert Koehler

    There's something both simple and sweet about Bolt, yet epic, that's entirely surprising.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Bolt breaks no great new stylistic ground -- and yet it's a sturdy beaut.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    Bolt proves a refreshing throwback to the animated classics of yore.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Bolt has the magical quality of great animation, the ability to touch us without the hint of preachiness or manipulation.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    For the first time in years, it feels like Disney has done its namesake proud.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    As Bolt, John Travolta is inspired: His voice still cracks like an adolescent’s, and he has the perfect dopey innocence.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    Bolt carries two tales for the price of one, both handled by Disney veterans and first-time directors Chris Williams and Byron Howard with wit, grace, and the dazzling craftsmanship we've come to expect from the studio that's hitched its wagon to Pixar.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    What keeps Bolt fresh is an unaffected exuberance, a genuine sense of fun, that is expressed above all through obsessive attention to craft.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    This is a Disney film, so there's never any real question regarding Bolt and his friends' ultimate success or failure, but the writing team of Dan Fogelman (Cars) and co-director Williams (Mulan) have concocted one of the most witty and often hilarious Disney outings in years.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    While this charmer about a canine James Bond does not pack the emotional punch of "WALL-E," it's frisky fun to see the white shepherd get a new leash on life.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ruthe Stein

    It's doubtful that audiences go to animated features to hear movie stars talk. They go because a film sounds like fun and something their kids and maybe they themselves might enjoy. Bolt is all that and more.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Perry Seibert

    This winning mix of exciting action, heart-tugging sentiment, and gentle character comedy makes Bolt yet another solid addition to Disney's history of family-friendly fare.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    This stuff is clever, in the reflexively satirical, self-aware way that many animated films are. It's not until the dog is accidentally shipped off to New York City that the movie lets you in on an altogether more interesting idea: It doesn't want to be that cool.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    There's a terrific tenderness in Travolta's performance, while Cyrus and company are similarly effective.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    At the end of the day, Bolt is a sweet Disney family film.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Bears some telltale signs of Pixar's trademark smarts, but still looks like a mutt compared to the younger company's customary purebreds.

    Variety Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    Travolta does a nice job, but Bolt is of course the most boring, blandly cute character in the movie.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Andy Spletzer

    As the voice of Bolt, John Travolta does a fine job and Disney star Miley Cyrus is fine as well, but neither one can overcome the lack of personality in their scripted characters.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Has that formulaic, cookie-cutter feel typical of many Disney toons. The premise is inspired, but the follow-through is merely adequate.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Bolt borrows amiably from a host of sources, including "The Incredible Journey," "Lilo and Stitch" and "Toy Story 2."

    USA Today Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Though every frame is great to look at, Bolt's script - by the co-writers of "Mulan" and "Cars" - lacks the wit of its closest Pixar relative, "The Incredibles." Rhino and some goofy pigeons provide the few laughs once the tale goes cross-country.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Damon Wise

    The unlikely superhero of this film is the hamster, who brings the funny amid a flurry of weaker gags. But Bolt still has charm -- it just won't hit with the adults the way the best animated films can.

    Empire Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Taken on its own terms, Bolt the movie certainly makes the cut.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Dan Kois

    As sprightly and determined as its fuzzy, yappy lead, the new Disney animated film Bolt works hard to be all things to all people, with mixed results.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Sporadically entertaining, occasionally quite funny.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Both original and good; the problem is the original parts aren't good and the good parts aren't original.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Bolt is just too knowing; it keeps reminding us, loud and clear, of how culturally savvy it is.

    Salon.com Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Adults won't find much to enjoy here, though the dog's high-octane action series serves as a perverse parody of Jerry Bruckheimer-style summer blockbusters.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It's a seriously withholding action comedy, stingy on the wit, charm, jokes, narrative satisfactions and animals with personalities sharp enough for the big screen, either in 2-D or 3-D.
