From Amazon.co.uk

From the moment that Prince Eric's ship emerged from the fog in the opening credits of The Little Mermaid in 1989 it was apparent that Disney had somehow, suddenly recaptured a "magic" that had been dormant for 30 years. In the tale of a headstrong young mermaid who yearns to "spend a day, warm on the sand", Ariel trades her voice to Ursula, the Sea Witch (classically voiced by Pat Carroll), for a pair of legs. Ariel can only succeed if she receives true love's kiss in a few day's time and she needs all the help she can from a singing crab named Sebastian, a loudmouth seagull and a flounder. The lyrics and music by song-writing team Howard Ashman and Alan Menken are top form: witty and relevant, and they advance the story (go on, hum a few bars of "Under the Sea"). Mermaid put animation back on the studio's "to do" list and was responsible for ushering 1991's Beauty and the Beast into cinemas. A modern Disney classic. --Keith Simanton --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

I want to start with myself; I am not a 12 year old girl who has watched this film 5 times, I am a 17 year old boy who has watched this film near 100 times. The Little Mermaid will always be my favourite Disney film because of its characters, animation, story and score. This film combines each of these crucial aspects and formulates a well-rounded Disney film which will be loved by all. Do not be discouraged by the title or protagonist; this is NOT a girly film. Yes, Ariel is female but the story is not gender specific; we can all dream and take chances and there is no way that everything is targeted at little girls. In fact, there seems to be many areas which break the "Disney princess" convention e.g. the final fight.
Two things anger me about this film: the fact that some people deem it feminine and are drawn away from appreciating this real work of art and not enough praise is given to Alan Menken for his Academy Award winning musical score which resonates throughout. Now with this HD upgrade, hopefully it will gain more praise in both areas.
Besides the background details which should have more appreciation, the film throws you into the underwater world where you will meet Ariel and her friends as well as her father who stands in between the mermaid and becoming part of the human world. To "help" her is the brilliant and iconic Ursula but little does Ariel know how much her hopes will cost her and those closest to her. One major criticism of the film is Ariel herself whom some say throws women's rights back a few decades but I see Ariel as (certainly the first princess) a figure who shows conviction and determination to involve herself in action and does not rely on her prince to save her.

Starting from when Beauty and the Beast was first released on blu ray with classic numbering on its side, I've found myself collecting the majority of the releases to build up the set, and have been eagerly awaiting this as one of the better installments of the franchise.

The film itself would be an easy 9/10 as there are moments where the animation feels a little stilted and halfhearted (almost entirely in the opening sequence with the very plain dolphins etc) which drag it down, but once we first encounter the characters, the film picks up and never lets it sag for a moment.

The blu ray transfer is flawless, as mentioned in regards to the opening animation, I did have an initial concern when watching that it might look TOO clean and really highlight the flaws to detriment of the film, but this was not the case, and instead the colours are rich and vibrant and sound perfectly balanced between dialogue and musical interludes. Speaking of said musical numbers, absolute highlights of the transfer would be the flashy visuals to Poor Unfortunate Souls, and the enhanced mood and beauty to Kiss The Girl - both have never looked or sounded better. Overall transfer gets another 9/10 due to the slight issue taken with the initial few minutes as mentioned earlier. However if you have never had any issues the style and animation there, than this definately gets the extra point to a perfect 10.
The extra features are nicely varied and whilst personally not many I'd re-watch, all were interesting to at least see the once.

Of the many Disney blu rays I have seen thus far, this is easily one of the best transfers - right up there with the likes of Beauty and the Beast and Tangled and a must buy for any fan!

The little mermaid is the best.You'll meet Ariel the mermaid in love with a human and her unforgettable friends,flounder the fish,sebastian the crab and scuttle the seagull.You'll also meet Ursula the great villainess and many more characters.Also experience the award winning music(you'll be dancing in your seat.) This movie on DVD is excellent but it could have more features,nevertheless you see this masterpiece in all it's true glory! It is certainly my fave film of all time and I'm a 15 year old lad!Enjoy it!

14 years before 'Finding Nemo' splashed into cinemas, 'The Little Mermaid' had already taught us that it is indeed better, down where it's wetter Take It From Meeee....

where do i start This delightful Disney-fied adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson's tale of the same name still holds its own after all these years of advancements in animation. It's partly because the studio really pushes the boat out, as it were, when it comes to getting the visuals right. But it's also because this is a great story, with a strong female lead, a nice array of supporting characters, suspense and romance in all the right places and some better-than-decent tunes.

Jodi Benson does a fantastic job as the voice of Ariel, the "little mermaid" of the title (actually, she's 16 so not really all that little) For reasons we can only hazard a guess at, she longs to leave her deep sea life behind her and live up-top with the human types. So, despite the strong advice of King Triton (who's also her dear old daddy), she makes a deal with the tentacled seahag Ursula which involves swapping her voice for a pair of legs. The catch? She's got to get the handsome and unfortunately named Prince Eric to snog her before the sun goes down on the third day, or she'll be tossed back into the sea like an old trout Of course, it goes without saying that pop's is gonna chuck a wobbler when he finds out lol

The colourful and imaginative backdrops make for a visual treat, particularly in the underwater scenes, whilst the characters are much better written than many of their counterparts from other Disney flicks of the period. Perhaps the only exception to that is witchy woman Ursula, who's a bit like Madam Mim from 'The Sword and the Stone' only without the comedy value.
