Sometimes great things come in little packages – like Minuscule: Valley Of The Lost Ants. Kaboom! Entertainment’s latest release in theatres, On Demand, and on DVD May 26th, Minuscule: Valley Of The Lost Ants is a beautifully animated movie, set in the French Alps, and follows the adventures of a group of, you guessed it, ants…and one ladybug.
“After a couple leaves their picnic in a hurry, a gang of hungry ants moves in to steal what could be their most coveted treasure: a tin box filled with sugar cubes. But before they can get away with the loot, a newly-born ladybug strays from its own family and gets trapped inside the box! The ladybug is soon spirited away by the ants as they try to transport their prize across the woods toward their colony. Together, the insects embark on an epic journey to protect their sugar.”
I’m always a sucker for animated movies such as this one, and Minuscule: Valley Of The Lost Ants did not disappoint. I would love to have seen this movie in 3D since it is a movie that likely lends itself very well to 3D visuals. Would I call this my favourite animated movie of all time? No. But it was charming, cute, and definitely a movie the little ones will likely want to watch over and over. I could have done with fewer insect battle scenes, but who am I to critique that. Kids love battle scenes, and, yes, they’ll love Minuscule: Valley Of The Lost Ants!
