5.0 out of 5 stars The Incredible Journey 21 Feb 2007
I often watch films that i saw as a kid, and i find that they are never as good the second time around. But this film is a true classic, and one that i definately recommend that you buy. It is a great family film, that will make you shed a tear if you love animals. No CGI used here, just great camera work which gives you the feeling that you are right there with them on their incredible journey. A feel good film for children and adults. Buy it now !

5.0 out of 5 stars Give your eyes a workout 28 Feb 2007
I was taken to see this film every time that it was on at the local cinema as a child. It was so enthralling that I cried with relief at the end every time. Still the only film to do that without fail. Watch it with your children.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Family Classic!!!! 6 Nov 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I used to watch this film when I was a young boy, on a dodgy tape recorded off of the telly, finally they have released it on Dvd. This film is the only film that has ever made me shed a tear, & thats saying something as I am a Big butch rugby player. I watched it again recently & the ending still makes the hairs on my arms stand on end.

This is a must for any loving family (especially those of you with dogs & Cats).

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated, but still delightful 12 May 2011
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
The original and best version of the story of two dogs and a cat who go it alone and cross hundreds of miles to be reunited with their owners, although this has dated very noticeably, it's still a delight and head and shoulders above the recent remake. This one doesn't need stars to do comic voice-overs for the trio, making do with a narrator instead, another link to Disney's True-Life (but partially faked) Adventures, of which this seems a logical extension.

The animals' ingenuity is partially counter-balanced by their stupidity - if they'd hung around a couple of hours longer, they could have saved themselves an awful lot of trouble. Nonetheless, their adventures en route provide plenty of memorable vignettes, although at times you do wonder how many cats they got through: attacked by a lynx, chucked in a raging river, he gets the worst of it. That said, the animals are infinitely better actors than the humans, who seem to have been cast for their visual likeness to a Norman Rockwell family and quickly make you appreciate the subtle nuances of the average Patsy Kensit performance. Star of the show is Bodger the bull terrier, who would undoubtedly be deemed a dangerous dog in Britain and immediately put down!

It's still entertaining stuff with an ending that ensures there won't be a dry eye in the house, but it's a pity Disney have put so little effort into this DVD: with such a short running time, it seems miserly not to include any extras.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and simple family film 19 Feb 2008
Disney is not just responsible for some of the most popular animated children's films of all time, it was responsible for this 1963 family classic, too.

It's a wonderfully simple and sweet story; three animals have been left with one of the relatives of the family who look after them. One day, that man goes out, and thinking that they've been left for good, the three animals set out to find their way home - over a whopping 200 miles.

Amazingly this is actually based on a true story. The three animals in this film are an adorable Pitbull Terrier, Golden Retriever and Siamese cat, who have all been fantastically trained. There actually seems to be genuine affection between the three animals, in adorable moments when the three of them curl up together, asleep, or the cat, believe it or not, defends the ageing Pitbull against a rowdy bear.

There are many other perilous moments along the way, and several times the animals are either separated or hurt, but against all odds, and some severely harsh terrain, the animals manage to successfully complete their dangerous journey, making this a feelgood classic for people of all ages. They don't make them like this any more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Gets Me Right Here! 14 Feb 2010
Ah, childhood memories of the Christmas I was given the original book by Sheila Burnford as a present. While my family played cards downstairs (never something I was any good at or fond of) I sat in my bedroom and devoured it cover to cover. A cover that had a still photo from this very film.
This wonderful film version from Disney was a very good attempt to capture the magic so skillfully woven in the words of the book. Yes it has that sometimes too twee narration, typical of many of the Disney "true life" adventures, but this does not spoil the film at all. You cannot help being captivated by the adventures of the three animal friends. A tendancy to "anthropomorphise" perhaps a little too much for adult tastes but I loved this story so much as a child I don't care.
Lots of lessons for children to learn and take note of but above all it is the value of true friendship.
Without spoiling the ending, I will say this, it still brings a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye at age 43.
Childhood magic at it's best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 14 Aug 2009
I have been waiting years for this on DVD. Pure nostalgia for my childhood. With a deft directorial touch it manages to steer clear of sentamentalism, while bringing a tear to the eye.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking! 4 Feb 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have read all the reviews on here and noticed that none of them mentioned the Homewardbound films which are the so called remakes of this film, so given that I purchased this one based on my love of those films , I thought I should compare them for those of you who have stumbled upon this for the same reason.
First of all I don't think this is as simple as old and new, there are several big differences between the films.
Where Homeward bound has talking animals, The Incredible journey has a narrator who talks us through the animals movements, thoughts and personalities.
The main story is also quite different, though the central theme of getting home is obviously still there.
I felt, though The Incredible Journey was a totally different experience to Homewardbound it essentially had the same feeling, particularly at the end and the backdrop to the film is just breathtaking.
I would highly recommend this to families or anyone who loves cats or dogs and I think I actually prefer this one without the talking animals.
