They Are Similar Antz

In the movie "Antz" the ants posses very many qualities which are similar, and

some the same as humans. The first quality that is similar to humans, is that the

ants all try to work themselves to the top of the ant colony, this is one quality

that the character Z has more then the others. Another quality that the ants

have to live by which is they live, and follow instructions by one controller.

The ants also posses many similar human characteristics. They also show

similar emotions that us humans show. The ants in the movie also posses the

same actions, and there is great similarity to their interaction with each other,

as us humans have. These qualities are all clearly shown throughout the whole

movie, and are very much similar, and some are exactly the same as human

qualities. As we all know, a humans dream in general, it to get to the top of

their society somehow. Humans usually seem to think that what they do is

worthless, and that they have no choice but to do something that they don't

want to. Humans will always try to work as hard as possible until they are the

best at what they do. This quality is similar to that of Z's. Z is the average

working ant. He is depressed about how his life is going and he feels like he is

not going anywhere. He tries his hardest to not be the average working ant by

switching places with his soldier ant friend. He does this because he meets the

princess Bala in a bar one night, and he falls for her very quickly. He then

realizes that the soldiers have to go for the royal inspection where the princess

will also be. Z realizes that if he switches places with his soldier friend, then he

will be able to see the princess Bala again. This is a form of working himself to

the top because, in my opinion, he fell for the princess as badly as he did

because she was "the princess of the colony" and if they ever were a couple

then Z would eventually become the princesses mate. I think that this is some

what similar to humans ways of trying to work themselves to the top. In

general, humans try to find a mate who is a successful, and high to the top. If a

person unsucceeds in finding a successful mate, he or she will find another

person to fall in love with. If that person turns out to be a highly successful

person, his or her mate will fall deeper in love because of the fact that the

person is more successful than they thought. This is similar to Z and the

princess Bala, because Z met a beautiful ant, and once he found out that she

was the princess, he fell for her more strongly. I think that this is a way of

working to the top because you find a highly successful person, and they will

bring you up with them, just as Z did in the movie, and most humans attempt

to do. In the movie "Antz", another aspect which is similar to the way that

humans live, is by living, and obeying by one controller or the government. We

humans live by the rules of the government in charge, we follow rules, we pay

our taxes, and we basically do whatever it is that the government in charge

wants us to do. In the movie "Antz" every ant that lives is controlled by one

ant. It is not made very clear in this movie who is the controller. Mandible

makes all of the rules, and does all of the speeches, but it is usually the queen

ant that is the leader of the whole ant colony, but in this movie, it doesn't really

show the queen making many decisions. I would suspect that sergeant

Mandible is the leader, or the "government" of the ant colony. Every ant has

to obey his rules, or else they get into trouble with him, and they have to face

Mandible's consequences. The ant colony in this movie is sort of run like a

socialist society. At birth, the ants are places as either a worker, or as a

soldier, and they grow up with no choice but to be what they were names as.

The rich, which is the queen,...
