The overall story is less poignant than in the previous film, but the main characters still have charm and several new supporting roles are undeniably creative.

They were clearly going for an Indiana Jones vibe with Rescuers Down Under and in every way they succeeded.

Better than its predecessor.

Tweaks the formula with a brisker pace, and development of leading characters...and action sequences... [Blu-ray]

A rare sequel that improves on the original.

There's only the one thing it does flat-out wrong: this otherwise delightful adventure-comedy has a completely meandering, aimless story.

The villain is far too malignant, the young vigilante hero seems to be a kiddie Rambo, and some of the action is quite violent, if not tasteless.

The Rescuers' identification/memorableness factor remains second division.

This sort-of sequel to the 1977 hit The Rescuers boasts reasonably solid production values and fine character voices. Too bad they're set against such a mediocre story that adults may duck.

As for the animation, computer technology invests contemporary features with sometimes breathtaking dynamism, but outback flora being what it is, this isn't the most colourful Disney movie.

I had my first epileptic seizure while watching this film. It was more exciting than this tepid sequel.

Passable Disney sequel.

The film's direction, by Hendel Butoy and Mike Gabriel, is spectacularly inventive even when not fully appropriate to either the film's subject or the very young viewers it can be expected to attract.

Watchable and family-friendly, but don't expect the moon.
