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.

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!

The movie shows exactely how good an author Brian Jaques is! If you are looking for action, a young teens interest and lots more in great detail, this is the story for you!

I thought the film was good but it missed out a lot of small things such as that Chickenhound killed his mother and Jess Squirell had a son. I find it best to read the book first as when my freinds were waching it they didn't know the names of the creatures and what was going on.The animation is great, especially Matthias fighting at the end. It is a great film in the way that it has humour, sadness, courage and wits all rolled into one!

Now this movie had no pleasing effects for me. Instead, it gave me disbelief, and disgust. The animation is pretty bad, and why does the badger have BLOND hair along with black and white fur!? The voices are exaggerated, doesn't really match at all, and Basil Stag's Hare was ugly.
