4.0 out of 5 stars breathtaking animation
Somewhere in Australia, a young boy and his eagle friend are in trouble, so once more, Bernard and Bianca come to the rescue. It's a wonderful story filled with charming characters, all different in their own way. It's not too sentimental, yet, it has it's moments. This is not just a kid's movie. This is a movie the whole family can enjoy, since the content is not goofy,...

1.0 out of 5 stars Lacking sequel, uninteresting and bland...
Following the adventures of Bernard and Miss Bianca from Disney's 1977 classic, hit film, The Rescuers is "The Rescuers Down Under" an absolute disgrace to the original film, mainly because it lacks the heart and warmth of the original. Characters like Madame Medusa, Penny and Evinrude are hard to replace, that's why I didn't expect this sequel to be anywhere as good, and...

Somewhere in Australia, a young boy and his eagle friend are in trouble, so once more, Bernard and Bianca come to the rescue. It's a wonderful story filled with charming characters, all different in their own way. It's not too sentimental, yet, it has it's moments. This is not just a kid's movie. This is a movie the whole family can enjoy, since the content is not goofy, but serious, though it does have a lot of funny moments. This movie is not exactly the newest animated movie Disney has created, but the animation is still as beautiful as their newest classics. In short, this movie has it all. The only thing I miss in this movie are the usual songs, which are in almost all Disney's masterpieces, but the story is still great, and it doesn't need music to be a good movie. Don't miss out on this lovely Disney classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Breakthrough in 3d vfx for 2d animation, 21 May 2008

This review is from: The Rescuers Down Under [DVD] [1991] (DVD)
This sequel to the rescuers was something special to disney, as this is the first sequal of feature animation to also become a feature. This is currently the only sequel to date to become a feature; this shows disney had great expectations and faith in this film.

This film has a similar story style to the original film, where a kid gets captured and its up to the rescue aid society to come to the rescue. The character cast in this film is amazing, and the animators do an incredible job at portraying emotion and expression through them.

This film also, as many may not know, include disney first 3d visual effects in 2d animation. There is a flying sequence at the start which is actually 3D which at the time of release was breathtaking, and was a huge impact on how film is today.

This film is really special, maybe not 'the best' disney feature, but its among some of the best animation films ever, and includes some of the best character animation I have ever seen.

This film will inspire you and wont fail to entertain.

Disney produces another masterpiece to follow 'The Rescuers'. Great little story perfect for the adventurer and escapist in everyone.

Ordered this as was next to nothing to pay. My kids (who are both in their 20's) love this film and brings a blast from the past as we had this on video. Brought the family together one Sunday whilst it was raining - Great - Love it.

I loved the original Rescuers film as a child and got it for my son. I then got this one, knowing it had a lot to live up to. We were not disappointed. It's as good as the original.
