The Black Cauldron Reviews

August 31, 2020
Feels like only half of a story, as if audiences are thrust into the core chapters of an epic quest, with countless elements left undetailed, unexplained, and underdeveloped.

Definitely one of the worst Disney animated films and gets worse every time I watch it

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.

Disney's worst animated feature.

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

The characters, though cute and cuddly and sweet and mean and ugly and simply awful, don't really have much to do that would remain of interest to any but the youngest minds.

As usual it is technically excellent, but the charm, characterisation and sheer good humour that made features like Pinocchio and Jungle Book so enjoyable are sadly absent.

This is the 25th full-length animated feature from Walt Disney studios, and professionally put together as it is, many of the ingredients may seem programmed to those who have seen some of the others.

[The Black Cauldron is] too dark and scary for younger children, and it's too silly and childish for older viewers to embrace.

Easily digestible (and forgettable).
