Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Incredible Journey [DVD] (DVD)
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.
