Critic Reviews for Anastasia

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (11)

An ambitious, serious but not particularly stimulating musical feature that unconvincingly attempts to graft warm and cuddly family-film motifs onto turbulent aspects of modern history and mythology.

Any film that echoes the landscape of Doctor Zhivago is hard to dislike for too long.

It's Bluth and company's skill as artists, as well as some of the better celebrity voice casting in an animated movie of the 1990s, that give Anastasia its merit.

Beautiful, not factual depiction of missing Russian duchess.

Audience Reviews for Anastasia

Not Disney but Don Bluth puts together a nice fresh movie with a solid voice cast!

Though the pacing may be off at times--and some moments may feel like Disney-rip-offs--Anastasia is a very well-done animated film, and may arguably be the most stunning film of its genre to grace the silver screen. It also contains one of the most beautiful songs ever written for film: "Journey to the Past," and manages to brilliantly blur the line between animation and real-life. With mostly strong dialogue, thrilling sequences, and a powerful, moving story, Anastasia is a triumph.

Disney adapts yet another old story, this time from Russia. Like all of these movies, they're not entirely accurate, but still they're fun and well made. This is a good one too, I liked it.
