Certainly not up to snuff with the old-time Disney classics, but quite entertaining all the same.

If the film fails to click on all the emotional levels that Disney might have wanted, at least it's a brightly-paced bit of comedy and fun.

...intended mainly for kids, most audiences, young and old, will get a kick out of it. ...the film is entertaining in its own low-key manner.

Small children may be afraid of some of the bad characters -- the Disney Studio's gift for creating really nasty bad guys means that they are scary -- but they will love the cute, brave mice and cheer their triumphs. Adults will enjoy the wit and style.

As usual with film noir, however, it is the villain who steals the heart and one is rooting for in the breathtaking showdown high up in the cogs and ratchets of Big Ben.
