Word Count: 1867In the movie Antz the ants posses very many qualities which are similar, andsome the same as humans. The first quality that is similar to humans, is that theants all try to work themselves to the top of the ant colony, this is one qualitythat the character Z has more then the others. Another quality that the antshave to live by which is they live, and follow instructions by one controller.
The ants also posses many similar human characteristics. They also showsimilar emotions that us humans show. The ants in the movie also posses thesame actions, and there is great similarity to their interaction with each other,as us humans have. These qualities are all clearly shown throughout the wholemovie, and are very much similar, and some are exactly the same as humanqualities. As we all know, a humans dream in general, it to get to the top oftheir society somehow. Humans usually seem to think that what they do isworthless, and that they have no choice but to do something that they dontwant to. Humans will always try to work as hard as possible until they are thebest at what they do.
This quality is similar to that of Zs. Z is the averageworking ant. He is depressed about how his life is going and he feels like he isnot going anywhere. He tries his hardest to not be the average working ant byswitching places with his soldier ant friend.
He does this because he meets theprincess Bala in a bar one night, and he falls for her very quickly. He thenrealizes that the soldiers have to go for the royal inspection where the princesswill also be. Z realizes that if he switches places with his soldier friend, then hewill be able to see the princess Bala again.
This is a form of working himself tothe top because, in my opinion, he fell for the princess as badly as he didbecause she was the princess of the colony and if they ever were a couplethen Z would eventually become the princesses mate. I think that this is somewhat similar to humans ways of trying to work themselves to the top. Ingeneral, humans try to find a mate who is a successful, and high to the top. If aperson unsucceeds in finding a successful mate, he or she will find anotherperson to fall in love with. If that person turns out to be a highly successfulperson, his or her mate will fall deeper in love because of the fact that theperson is more successful than they thought. This is similar to Z and theprincess Bala, because Z met a beautiful ant, and once he found out that shewas the princess, he fell for her more strongly. I think that this is a way ofworking to the top because you find a highly successful person, and they willbring you up with them, just as Z did in the movie, and most humans attemptto do. In the movie Antz, another aspect which is similar to the way thathumans live, is by living, and obeying by one controller or the government.
Wehumans live by the rules of the government in charge, we follow rules, we payour taxes, and we basically do whatever it is that the government in chargewants us to do. In the movie Antz every ant that lives is controlled by oneant. It is not made very clear in this movie who is the controller. Mandiblemakes all of the rules, and does all of the speeches, but it is usually the queenant that is the leader of the whole ant colony, but in this movie, it doesnt reallyshow the queen making many decisions.
I would suspect that sergeantMandible is the leader, or the government of the ant colony. Every ant hasto obey his rules, or else they get into trouble with him, and they have to faceMandibles consequences. The ant colony in this movie is sort of run like asocialist society. At birth, the ants are places as either a worker, or as asoldier, and they grow up with no choice but to be what they were names as.The rich, which is the queen, the princess, and every other ant that lives
