this was one of the first movies i ever saw and even as a 2 year old kid i didnt like it, the only redeemable factor is eric idle as the bad guy, hes just so delightful to watch in the movie
This is a movie where the sequel did not measure up to the original Secret of NIMH. The Original was dark, freaky, and the story quite compelling. This movie is what we get when we try to let film makers and parents guide our decisions into what movies we should see. This movie is about Timmy and how he moved away from his family and went to NIMH and Justin and Mr. Ages request to live off his father's destiny (That's literally what it looks like, no other explanation is given). But as Timmy grows he only wants to be a hero where Justin and Mr. Ages just wants him to learn and be cautious for his own good. One day another young girl mouse comes to NIMH and tells the rats of NIMH that their other families at NIMH survived and are being tortured there. The rats of NIMH think it is to dangerous to venture there only to get captured once again. So, what naturally happens is that Timmy and the young girl mouse venture to NIMH with a little help from old friend Jeremy(Where he and a catipillar are schemeing other forest creatures out of there food because they are pretending to be the great owl; who left the tree he was at years ago). One Timmy and the girl mouse get there they find out that NIMH plans to send in army to the rats of NIMH to destroy it. Can Timmy stop this henous plot? As you can see that is the overall plot to this film and yes, it is corny. There are things that our good about this movie like having Arthur Mallet, Dom DeLuise, William H. Macy, and Eric Idle involved. The story is pretty good too, until the corny ending and also it is hilarious to hear Ralph Macchio singing and acting as Timmy. Overall this film has it's moments but for true fans it leaves you wanting more. 5 out of 10 I give it.
Ugh. 1990, the time when the cartoon world went into 4kids mode. When I was a child I always preferred the first movie over this...poor excuse of a sequel, not like any of them are as good as the first movie. But this...ugh...full of corny lines, the characters are cheaply animated. The list goes on.
