Now we are getting into the second ‘golden’ period of Disney animated films. This is fully CGI animation with an extraordinary amount of detail. The films starts with a fantastic chase sequence before slowing down and getting into explaining the situation and plot.
From there, it’s a road trip with Bolt, Mittens and Rhino. The three work well together, thanks to some great script writing. And in the final act Bolt has to perform a heroic act for real.
Everything just works in this movie.
