The Bee Movie: A Review

The Bee movie is a 3D-animated Film by DreamWorks Animation, directed by Simon J. Smith and voiced by famous artists Jerry Seignfeld and Renee Zellweger. The film introduced the character of a bee who just finished his days as a students and to be introduced in the world of Honey-making. As a bee, Barry B Benson and his colleagues has to make the decision of their life, to choose a job for eternity. When he heard about this, Barry was surprised and dismayed. He learned how to be a nectar collector and discovered the outside world. At the middle of their trip, Barry's life is saved by Vanessa, a florist in New York City. As their relationship blossoms, he discovers humans actually eat honey, and subsequently decides to sue the human race.

The movie's plot was common and lacks originality. Like the previous movies of DreamWorks, Antz and Sharktale, the Bee Movie features a character that deviates with the norms of the society and lands in a conflict and again, saves the day. Along the story, there are unrealistic instances like a bee falling in love with a lady, bees carrying a huge airplane, etc. This makes the story entertaining but less interesting.

The look and feel of the movie gives the viewers an insects point of view with a mixture of the human world. The cinematography was undoubtedly good as well as the audio visual elements. It was a little short (90 minutes) and some scenes are forgettable.

There are moral lessons in the story that was expressed in the movie. In the community, even though we only play a minor role, if we do it good, it will make a difference. Everyone deserves to be treated equally with no discrimination. Tiny creatures also have the gift of life and they deserve to enjoy the short time that God has given them. We should not be a hindrance to other's enjoyment but we should support them. The world has a balanced system and everyone benefits to one another. If the system is altered or if one does not do their parts, the system would not work. There will be a disaster. Every creation, great or small, has dignity and each one of them deserves respect and love...
