What You Need To Know:

In the beautiful animated movie, ANTZ, lone ant Z is tired of the daily grind of conformity. Striving for individuality, he tries to find help. Therapy does not supply a solution, but a beautiful princess certainly does. They are both accidentally ejected from the colony and encounter a myriad of obstacles in the outside world. When the princess is kidnapped, Z returns to the Colony just in time to save everyone from the evil plans of a corrupt general. Valor, courage and love ultimately win the day.

ANTZ is a superb piece of computer animation. The voices and matching caricatures of Woody Allen and the rest of the cast render a convincing, enticing invitation to an unexplored yet familiar domain. Although it has some violence, scary moments and mild foul language, good defeats evil in ANTZ. The movie’s moral, anti-Communist worldview takes a Christian stance in its solution to Z’s internal battle whether to serve the community or his own individual desires and needs. Z learns the individual has obligations toward the community, and the community has obligations toward the individual. This is a biblical viewpoint founded on the nature of the Holy Trinity, three persons in one God, the divine foundation for both the Many and the One
