When I saw this one there was no surprise there it was not up to my standards not a very good story line so I was not impressed

The backstory of Ariel's mother was good, and there were a few decent parts. However, I felt like this could have definitely been reduced to a short TV episode because as a movie it got slightly long and boring at times. Also, what the hell is that strange manatee thing?

Personally I liked it better than the first one, not that I don't like the first one, but Ariel's more likeable here, not so whiny and less of an airhead. :P

had the best 2D animation for a third movie or a prequel movie, but a lack of story that kinda ruined the connection between the first, second and the film series...

While it explains Ariel's childhood quite well, the fact that it doesn't have the good qualities of a Disney film is really disheartening. A boring, stale, unexciting diatribe that will leave you wanting to watch the original instead.

A cute, charming prequel to the lovable original classic that still lives on with magic and heart. (A)

(Full review coming soon)

Pretty much stole the plot from the Sound of Music, but not even close to as good.

Footloose underwater? Kill me now. At least it's slightly more interesting than the second one but that's not saying much either.
