Product Description

From Amazon.co.uk

Brian Jacques' has a dedicated following of young readers across the globe who are totally enthralled by his Tales of Redwall books.

Fans of the series will be pleased to hear that the atmosphere of the bestselling books is captured perfectly in this stunning full-length feature, which follows the story of a young Matthias, a heroic mouse in search of his destiny, and the beautiful and brave mousemaid Cornflour. Together, they begin their quest to find the lost sword of the legendary Martin the Warrior so they can save Redwall Abbey from the evil Cluny the Scourge--a wicked one-eyed rat intent on bringing Redwall to its knees.

Adapting such a popular book for the screen could so easily have detracted from the essence of the original story, with its battle of good versus evil interspersed with warmth and humour, and its ability to truly capture a child's imagination. But this team have pulled it off with aplomb: the animation is spot on, the atmosphere is highly charged, the characters are true to Jacques' originals and, although those who know the book well will spot that some detail is missing, the important, magical, elements of the story are all there.

This is exciting stuff, filled with heroism and humour, and packaged into 85 minutes of pure, unadulterated pleasure for lovers of fantasy and adventure. Age range: 7 and over. --Susan Harrison.

Product Description

Three more animated adventures for daring mouse Matthias. In 'Sparra's Kingdom', Matthias follows a series of clues to the kingdom of the mad King Bull Sparra, where he discovers an end to his quest. 'Cluny's Clown' sees Cluny attempting to infiltrate the Abbey disguised as a clown when a travelling circus comes to town. In 'High Standard', it seems that Basil and Jess the Squirrel have deserted Redwall when Cluny tries to starve the Abbey occupants out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent abridgement of multi-episode series 12 Mar 2001
By R. A. Caton TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
I bought this video in a shop near London Bridge some while ago; being a fan of the Redwall series of books and an admirer of Nelvana production values I was curious to see how the excellent prose would translate into film. I was not disappointed; but imagine my surprise when I found the same animation being broadcast on C5 early Saturday mornings! This film has evidently been expertly edited from the 14 episodes broadcast - but I recommend anyone who likes the movie to catch the full serialisation if they can, and would suggest to Nelvana that the whole series be put out on tape/DVD for completionists.

4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining abridgment of the series 17 Aug 2001
Being a big fan of Redwall, i just had to get the video. It is a lovely film with english actors (hooray!) such as Tyrone Savage and Alison Pill as the hero Matthias and heroine, Cornflower. Any Redwall fan should have it as it is an exceptional video that I throughly enjoyed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Further adventures from the beseiged abbey. 24 Mar 2001
Format:VHS Tape
What can I say? Redwall continues to be the best children's adventure series for a long time. This is the second volume of the television series, comprising episodes 4-6, including the excellent "Cluny's Clown" (my favourite episode so far). Even if one already has the single-tape feature-length Redwall (also available form Amazon), I still recommend getting the series- the feature leaves a lot out. Buy and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Battle Reaches its End 19 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The final conflict is at hand. Matthias is far from Redwall and the Abbey is within the evil Cluny's grasp. Tings look desperate for the defenders..
This is the last installment of the Redwall saga and it does not disappoint. The story is excellent and fills many of the "holes" left in the feature-length "Redwall- Into Every Child's Life..." The final assault will take your breath away, and we even see a side to Cluny the Scourge we could never have expected. Wonderful from start to finish, "Final Conflict" makes one wish that the next series will be released soon!

1.0 out of 5 stars Redwall the Movie - What a Disappointment 20 May 2004
Format:DVD
As a long-time teenage fan of the redwall series, I really had high hopes for the feature film of my favourite book ever. However, I was in for a surprise. This film is a travesty to the Redwall book and name. It detracts from the actual story, uses shoddy animation and awful voice acting. The target audience for the Redwall series was teenage children, and surely this film could have been made for them, not completely watered down to appease American infants. In the book there is actually some violence and bloodshed, which highlights the fact that this is a war between the peaceful mice and villanious rats. If you are a true Redwall fan like me, you will shun this video and pray for a true interpretation one day.
