Since the word "bolt" can be used as a vulgar word meaning a male organ in Russian, the film was released as "Volt" in Russia, with the hero called Volt. The film is also called "Volt" in Hungary, France and for the French-language release in Canada. Also, the name of the film is "Lightning" in Croatia, Slovakia, Estonia and Poland; and "Thunder" in Bulgaria. See more »
(at around 20 mins) In the "Cliffhanger" scene, Penny rolls a penny to distract the guards. The close-up of the back of the penny is missing Abraham Lincoln sitting in his chair. This happens frequently in cartoons. Since there are laws against depicting currency too realistically in reference books etc., the animators are being overly cautious to avoid accusations of counterfeiting. See more »

This film is about a dog that believes his friend is in grave danger. What he does not know is that he is the star of a reality TV show.
Who would have thought "Bolt" would be so thrilling and entertaining! The opening action sequence is rushed with adrenaline, it excites me even though it is an animation! The plot is intelligent, interesting and fun, the great thing is that it entertains without the need of any toilet or gross out humour. The super-bark and laser eye scenes are so hilarious, in a cute and mesmerising way. In addition, the transition of Bolt from being a super dog to realising he he has no powers is very well presented, that it makes me feel sad for Bolt. The animation is flawless, and all the characters in the animation are super cute. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of "Bolt", I think it makes perfect family entertainment.
