Bluth and his animators, bless them, chose to revive an endangered art form -- classically detailed animation. They drew their characters exquisitely and gave them individual personalities.

The animation is lovingly rendered and there's a pedigree cast (Dom DeLuise, Derek Jacobi, John Carradine) providing voices.

The award-winning book had a pretty crackerjack story to begin with, but in some respects, I think Bluth and his co-writers have bettered it.

Not enthralling, but worth seeing for anyone interested in the mechanics of this arcane art.

Every character moves fluidly and imaginatively against an extravaganza of detailed background and dazzling effects, all emboldened by fascinating colored textures.

The animation was, as Bluth and company had promised, a spectacular return to old-school craftsmanship.

It's a spectacular return to the shimmering, mesmerising deep-focus animation associated with Disney's classic period...

Never mind the G rating, this is scary stuff which sent my little one fleeing to another room inside of 10 minutes.

The story manages to be sentimental without being especially moving.

It took years before Disney would match the quality of this first film from expatriate Don Bluth.

It remains the best entry in Bluth's hugely inconsistent filmography.
