Bolt, an American white shepherd, has lived his whole life on the set of his action TV show, where he believes he has superpowers. When separated from the studio by accident, he meets a female alley cat named Mittens and a hamster named Rhino. He's trying to find the way home, to the studio. Along the way, he learns that he doesn't have superpowers and that the show is not real.Written by
(at around 10 mins) The director is upset because a boom microphone is visible in the frame and "the dog could have seen that." Regardless of what the camera captured, the microphone and its operator were out in the open on the set itself, where Bolt could have seen them during filming, even if they were edited out later.

In the French version, Bolt is called Volt and dubbed by Richard Anconina. The two actor cats and the various pigeons are voiced by comedic duo Omar Sy and Fred Testot. All French cinemas carrying the 3D version of the film showed it exclusively in its French dub. The film in its original English (with French subtitles) was only shown in 2D. A goof occurs when re-lettering the written name. The dog's tag and the billboards seen, read Volt during the first part of the movie, but read Bolt later on. See more »
Bolt follows a canine actor known for playing a super hero on a TV show, he is supported from his owner and must find his way back to her, all while believing he truly has super powers.
Bolt is loads of fun! There are lots of creative action scenes, plenty of funny jokes, and even some emotional scenes.
Bolt has the makings of a Disney classic, but it does come up a little short of the usual Disney magic.
Firstly, the story lacks depth, the story basically tells itself in the first 30 minutes, then fuels the rest with action, comedy and drama.
Secondly Miley Cyrus proved to be an annoying choice for voicing one of the main characters, not only is she an ear-sore, but she struggles to express different emotions vocally, her voice feels fake and just detracts from the overall film.
Luckily there's still plenty good in Bolt, it's definitely a great choice for a family friendly action comedy!
