The Rescuers Reviews
even if most of the animation isn't superb the movie is still harmless for younger viewers
a heroic story of two mice helping to save a little girl from a greedy pawn woman
it's got some colorful characters from Orville to Evinrude to Madame Medusa
Penny though she might be sweet and innocent has a lot to be desired in terms of her acting, still, she is the focus of the picture always holding onto a glimmer of hope in any form
one of the shorter Disney films but still very pleasing
Made in a time when the old Disney animators were retiring and the new crop started to enter the field, (including master animator Glen Keane,) "The Rescuers" is a very special film in the history of the studio.
The key flaw in the film it seems to be pulled in two directions by conflicting creators. Not only do they alternate between some very sombre (and possibly powerful) moments and some unfocused silliness, they also never decided whether or not it's a musical. There are two short story pieces, the first of which feels like a big missed opportunity, and two non-diegetic vocal numbers sung by Shelby Flint that strengthen the overall sombre tone of the film.
