A crazy psychedelic cartoon straight out of the 60s with a great beatles soundtrack. The film stars the fab four on voyage to pepperland in a yellow submarine to rescue the locals from the evil blue meanies. This was a stunning piece of colourful animation that has stood the test of time, a great trippy film. The beatles did not provide the voices, however they did have a certain cameo at one point.
Yellow Submarine has often garish, but still very good and artistic animation, some scenes are very intriguing, the songs are pretty good and the world building in particular is its strongest asset, but the plot is not that great, the characters aren't that well developed and the film is too pretentious and frankly boring to be enjoyed more.
Whimsy, Beatles songs, light comedy, a mishmashed variety of colorful animation, child-like wonderment, Blue Meanies, a touch of melancholy, and kaleidoscope eyes for all ages. There may be some underlying meanings and possible political statements, but its a Beatles cartoon movie that's entertaining and dazzling to watch.
Its a psychedelic acid trip through weird animation starring the Beatles, but it doesn't mean its good. They don't even pick some of the best songs to perform, and the story just goes nowhere at the end. Its a neat experimental film, but I'd never watch it again.
Because of the combined love for and brilliance of The Beatles, this is a joy. But it's incredibly difficult to sit through. It features occasional moments of Python-esque greatness, particularly present in Help and Hard Days Night, but overall the action is hard to follow. The songs save it, as does the final appearance of all four lads in the flesh at the end.
