Flawed jumble of a film, but a picture of immense artistic accomplishment and dedication to atypical faces of wickedness...there's still so much to admire about this red-headed stepchild of a film.

It may have cost five times the amount of any other Disney film in the preceding two decades, but by God that money ended up on screen.

A glorious return to the days at Disney when animation was full and detail was everything.

It's quite good, though by the impossible standards the film sets for itself it inevitably falls short.

A flawed, but ambitious film that was obviously aiming to draw as many adults into the theater as children.

By the end of The Black Cauldron I was remembering, with something of a shock of nostalgia, the strength and utter storytelling conviction of the early Disney animators. The Black Cauldron is a return to the tradition.

...it serves a purpose in reminding us that even today's animation can't compare to the brilliance that hand-drawn animation offers its audience.

With all of the talent and effort put into this, the movie only amounts to a bunch of premature ideas that are clumped together, making little sense.

It's not a good film, but for one with the reputation of being the studio's worst animated feature, it shows that interesting work is done in it.

Possibly not the worst animated feature the House Of Mouse has produced, but certainly stumbling around the darker recesses of the Disney vault.
