Feeling insignificant in a conformity system, he accidentally meets beautiful Princess Bala, who has a similar problem on the other end of the social scale. In order to meet her again, Z switches sides with his soldier friend Weaver – only to become a hero in the course of events. By this he unwillingly crosses the sinister plans of ambitious General Mandible (Bala’s fiancé, by the way), who wants to divide the ant society into a superior, strong race (soldiers) and an inferior, to-be-eliminated race (the workers). But Z and Bala, both unaware of the dangerous situation, try to leave the oppressive system by heading for Insectopia, a place where food paves the streets.
Plot: A neurotic worker ant in love with a rebellious princess rises to unlikely stardom when he switches places with a soldier. Signing up to march in a parade, he ends up under the command of a bloodthirsty general. But he’s actually been enlisted to fight against a termite army.

Very underrated movie, this is one of Dreamworks’ best
Antz is an animated movie that wasn’t appreciated upon its initial release. After the family friendly movie Toy Story, I feel like people weren’t ready for something a little bit darker, and more intense. This movie has death (and a lot of it at that), it has violence, it has gore, it has humor, it has swearing, and it has alcohol in it… pretty epic huh (granted, just being edgy doesn’t necessarily equal good). The movie Antz which actually came out before A Bug’s Life by about a month takes the role of what ants do a lot more seriously and better captures an ant like atmosphere. The movie A Bug’s Life really doesn’t seem to understand what ants do or how their colonies work, but the movie Antz does it all. There are the miners, the warriors, the drones (the ones with wings) the queen and others. The voice acting itself is also pretty good and Woody Allen fits the role of Z perfectly. The animation was also pretty advanced for its time, because it did many things that were hard for that time: Water, large amounts of moving objects, realistic face movement, realistic body movement, lighting, and many others.
The nice thing about this movie is that it doesn’t pretend to be a kids movie. Ants swear in it (the word b****in is used once) and as mentioned there is a lot of violence. Like a very intense scene where the ants are trying to fight a termite colony and the ants are getting attacked by acid, are getting decapitated, and dying in other various barbaric ways. The thing is that this movie doesn’t cover up death. When someone dies, the movie won’t hide it.
The other cool thing in Antz is that the rest of the insects in the movie are as hideous and monstrous as they should be. Praying Mantis? It is infinitely larger than an Ant. Wasps? Like giants. It gives this overwhelming sense that Z is not only small in the ant world but also small in the insect world as well. There is nothing that can’t kill him (even the princess could if she wanted).
Honestly this movie was really good, it has a good story, it has good characters, it is realistic, and has nice action. One of Dreamkworks’ best.
Woody Allen Makes Antz.
Antz (1998): Dir: Eric Darnell, Tim Johnson / Voices: Woody Allen, Sharon Stone, Sylvester Stallone, Gene Hackman, Christopher Walken: Entertaining computer generated film about an ant with high hopes. The “z” in the title regards individuality as a worker ant convinces a soldier ant to switch places so that he may experience adventure in the outside world but he is thrown into the midst of a termite war. Z emerges from hiding and is celebrated as a hero until his worker title is revealed. To avoid punishment he flees with the reluctant Princess. While typical, co-directors Eric Darnell and Tim Johnson highlight with excellent detail particularly during a picnic sequence where the Princess is concealed in bubblegum on the bottom of a shoe that clothes in upon Z. Z is voiced by Woody Allen complete with posturing and personality. Sharon Stone voices the Princess who is at first seen as a hostage until she realizes what Z is. Sylvester Stallone voices the good-hearted soldier ant who switched places with Z. Gene Hackman voices the villain and despite his talent the role is standard issue and too familiar. Christopher Walken appropriately voices a sniper ant doing the obvious. We know how this will end but it is the celebrity personalities that prevail. Parents be warned of hinted sexual innuendo however triumphant images prove that more than just the colony put in hard work. Score: 7 ½ / 10
