Watership Down Reviews

...lovely to look at and fun to listen to, but dull and lethargic in spots, too, and sometimes brutally savage.

A rare movie that keeps kids on the edge of their chairs without inducing in their parents an overwhelming desire to escape theirs for a smoke in the lobby.

A beautifully realised animation, Watership Down ultimately works because it doesn't dilute the violence and drama of Adams' book with a rose-tinted lens.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Expertly and realistically animated, this version of the popular novel didn't seem to have an audience.

A brief spark of imagination survives in a prologue sequence, designed by the great John Hubley before he was fired from the film. The rest is blandness.

The rabbits' interactions mirror those of human behavior, and so too does the film possess a startlingly tangible sense of death.

Artful, pretty forgotten (and it should not be) animation of best seller.

Time Out

The 'camera' takes a conventionally objective viewpoint, perpetually rolling over rolling countryside, which effectively robs the plot of all its terror and tension.

Classic non-children's animated film.

Cuts so deep on so many ethereal levels that you can flip to nearly any page in the history book and see a parallel.

Looking Closer

Don't listen to anybody who writes it off as a 'cartoon about bunnies.' Stunning beauty, smart scripting, a splendid score ... this is a serious film for serious moviegoers.

Richard Adams's unforgettable, much-loved tale is honorably brought to life in a low-key, realistic animated style well suited to the naturalism and mature tone of the book.

For a kid, it's great. Kids can't normally smell extremely episodic, fractured narratives.
