Review by Christopher Coleman

Composer John Powell has, once again, been one of the busiest composers of the year. Following JUMPER, STOP/LOSS, HORTON HEARS A WHO, HANCOCK, and KUNG FU PANDA, comes his sixth project released in 2008 - Walt Disney Animation's BOLT. The animation studio was certainly in need of help with a seemingly endless number of previous releases, which were largely considered to be box-office-failures. With Disney's acquisition of Pixar in 2006, it was only a matter of time before the Pixar-expertise would have some positive impact on 3-D features produced and released at Walt Disney Animation Studios as well. In BOLT we can see, John Lasseter, now Chief Creative Officer of both Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, already having an effect. BOLT is easily the best from the studio to date, featuring decent voice-talent, en-par CG work, a well told story, and the music from the "Animation Score King," JOHN POWELL.
