From Amazon.co.uk

This zany, eye-popping, knee-slapping landmark in combining animation with live-action ingeniously makes that uneasy combination itself (and the history of Hollywood) its subject. Who Framed Roger Rabbit is based on classic Los Angeles private-eye movies (and, specifically, Chinatown), with detective Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) investigating a case involving adultery, blackmail, murder, and a fiendish plot to replace LA's once-famous Red Car public transportation system with the automobiles and freeways that would later make it the nation's smog capital. Of course, his sleuthing takes him back to the place he dreads: Toontown, the ghetto for cartoons that abuts Hollywood and that was the site of a tragic incident in Eddie's past. In addition to intermingling cartoon characters with live actors and locations, Roger Rabbit also brings together the greatest array of cartoon stars in the history of motion pictures, from a variety of studios (Disney, Warner Bros, MGM, Fleischer, Universal, and elsewhere): Betty Boop, Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse, Woody Woodpecker, Droopy Dog, and more! And, of course, there's Maroon Cartoon's greatest star, Roger Rabbit (voice by Charles Fleischer), who suspects his ultra-curvaceous wife, Jessica Rabbit (voice by Kathleen Turner: "I'm not bad; I'm just drawn that way"), of infidelity. Directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future, Forrest Gump, Contact), not since the early Looney Tunes' "You Oughtta Be in Pictures" has there been anything like Roger Rabbit. --Jim Emerson

By Picard TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
When you see Bob Hoskins drive into Toon-Town and seamlessly enter a new world of crazed toons and never ending skyscrapers, your hairs will suddenly stand on end. It's a realisation that over 40,000 hand-drawn animation cells, hours and hours of endless acting to imaginary characters, and the back-up of real special effects props have been combined to create one of the greatest cinematic achievements ever, that would inevitably set the benchmark for other acting/technology hybrid films, such as Terminator 2 in 1992.

The basis of this film shouldn't be over-looked though; it's a classic case of 1940's detective work, hosted by a moody and slightly alcoholic Bob Hoskins who has never been a complete man since his brother was killed by a Toon... Thats right - Toons and Humans both live together in society. But further weight is put on Hoskins shoulders as he's put into a trap, and is left with having to protect an eccentric Toon called Roger Rabbit, who like all great toons, has an over-whelming sense of humour!

Once a mysterious murder is uncovered down at the ACME (The film is endorsed by Warner Brothers and Disney amazingly!) factory, it's up to Hoskins to discover why Roger is being put in the frame for the murder... And who the murderer 'really' is...

Prior to buying this DVD, I had a rather worn out TV-Copy of this film that simply needed replacing. Low and behold, the DVD is sitting their at my local Oxfam shop for a mere two quid! So I got it and was amazed at the picture quality. The colours have really been brought out, and although it hasn't been "stated" to have been remastered, the transfer to digital is crisp enough, with very few speckles/white spots.

Their are also some extras, though I was put off by the annoying and long menu system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Wonderful 14 Nov 2005
Format:DVD
Brilliant film and at an amazing price. My children (ages 8,6 and 3) absolutely adore this film. Bob Hoskins is amazing and the cartoons just look so real!
There's lots in this film for adults to see- over and over again.
One word of warning my children had previously only seen this film on video recorded from T.V. and that had had 2 or three bits cut out. Beware the 'dipping of the shoe' is in this version and they might get a bit upset.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roger Rabbit. See it! 26 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Who framed Roger Rabbit was hailed as a giant leap for animation. It blended the world of live action and cartoon seamlessly. It is a film that has never been bettered even though some have tried. But more than this it is one of the funniest animated films ever created. It has very engaging characters, superb plot and a plethora of cartoon cameos. All in all a fantastic cinematic treat!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Blu ray For a Great Movie 9 Oct 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
25 years ago Roger Rabbit dazzled with it's groundbreaking mash up of live action and animation and while, by todays standards, the technology can look a little dated it's still a great film for all ages. Though, I must note, having viewed the movie again today for the first time since I was a nipper I was struck by just how far it goes in the violence stakes. Obviously, being a Disney movie, Im not talking gore here but there are a couple of scenes where I thought, 'Wow, I doubt you'd get away with that today'. Of course this never occurred to my 12 year old self when I saw the film. I loved it. And I still do. However it maybe worth considering for very young uns.

So, I love the film and, again, watching it now I much more fully appreciate the film noir-ishness which makes it an even better experience from my adult viewpoint. Indeed it reminds me very much of 'Chinatown' by Roman Polanski. A noir masterpiece.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit has been given a 21st century makeover in this new 25th anniversary Blu ray and its a little beauty.
The image stands up very well to scrutiny in HD and any lingering niggles are purely down to the source material and visual effects techniques. And remember we're talking live action mixed with animation on film here from 1988. Regardless, this is a nice looking Blu and seeing 'through' some of the animation techniques thanks to HD is surely all part of the charm.
The sound too is more than adequate to my ears.

As for extras, well, again this is a nice little package with some very worthwhile extra material. We get a very busy audio commentary track which is a great listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Groundbreaking and unsurpassed 7 Nov 2008
Format:DVD
The plot has been well-summarised in other reviews, but hats off first to animator Richard Williams, the man who not only created the cartoon characters but made them interact so convincingly with the humans. Nowadays we take computer animation so much for granted it would be easy to underestimate the complexity and painstaking detail involved in not only reproducing so many well-loved cartoon characters but integrating them, and the original toon characters of the movie, frame by frame, 14 to the second, for the full 99 minutes. You only have to compare this with previous attempts like Gene Kelly's dance with Jerry the Mouse in "Anchors Aweigh" Anchors Aweigh [1945] (REGION 1) (NTSC)], or the Sinbad sequence in "Invitation to the Dance" (currently unavailable), or Disney efforts like "The Three Caballeros" [[ASIN:B00005U1XY The Three Caballeros [1944] to see that this is in another class altogether. For all our gadgetry now, it's never been equalled.

Thanks too to Gary Wolf, who came up with the concept in the original novel. The film butchers the novel, but in a good way, because concepts only work if they are worked out down to the last frame and line of dialogue.

That's down to Jeffery Price and Peter Seaman, who wrote such a brilliant parody of film noir that operated on all levels, for children and adults, creating both a plot which would do credit to Raymond Chandler and dozens of references for movie buffs, while throwing in a hard left hook at the contemporary concrete squalor that is Los Angeles. Best line in the movie is Jessica Rabbit's: "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way."

Hats off too to Bob Hoskins who has to carry most of the movie.
