FernGully - The Last Rainforest Reviews
Hands-down, the best aspect of it is the antagonist - some sort of sentient pollution entity appearing to be constituted of crude oil and exhaust smoke. It's just a pity the rest of the film wasn't as inspired, relying far too much on the usual structure of storytelling for animation, making it pretty dull in latter parts (especially in the overly magical deus ex machina aspects).
A group of fairies live in a portion of the rainforest known as Fern Gully. A group of humans are cutting their way through the forest threatening Fern Gully. A curious fairy encounters a human and accidentally shrinks him to her level. The two learn more and more about each other and quickly discovering some educating needs to happen on both sides quick or Fern Gully may be done for.
"Humans can't feel anything; they're numb from the brain down."
Bill Kroyer, director of three short films, delivers Fern Gully in his lone directorial feature film. The storyline for this picture is interesting and well done. I thought the plot was interesting. The animation style is nothing special and two dimensional. The voices fit the characters well and include Christain Slater, Robin Williams, Tim Curry, Cheech Marin, Tommy Chong, Tone Loc, and Samantha Mathis.
"Am I dead?"
"We could fix that for you."
Fern Gully is a film I came across on Netflix and added to my wish list to watch with my daughter. We both loved it and were glued to it from beginning to end. I thought the fairies were well done and the plot unfolds well. This is a worthwhile addition to the genre.
