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.

The final conflict is at hand. Matthias is far from Redwall and the Abbey is within the evil Cluny's grasp. Tings look desperate for the defenders..
This is the last installment of the Redwall saga and it does not disappoint. The story is excellent and fills many of the "holes" left in the feature-length "Redwall- Into Every Child's Life..." The final assault will take your breath away, and we even see a side to Cluny the Scourge we could never have expected. Wonderful from start to finish, "Final Conflict" makes one wish that the next series will be released soon!

Yes. It's true. This animation isn't a movie, it is accutally a TV series. This item is only about 80min of cut down episodes. If you are really a fan of Redwall you would by the other 4 videos. Things get a lot more interesting! Trust me! I began watching this as a child and I still love it now as a 16 year old!

This is a great sequel to "sparras' kingdom" following the book almost exactly. it is recommendable that you watch the other vidieos before hand in the order they came out as you are not introduced to what has already happened. Redwall fans world wide will be pleased with this video.

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!

What can I say? Redwall continues to be the best children's adventure series for a long time. This is the second volume of the television series, comprising episodes 4-6, including the excellent "Cluny's Clown" (my favourite episode so far). Even if one already has the single-tape feature-length Redwall (also available form Amazon), I still recommend getting the series- the feature leaves a lot out. Buy and enjoy.

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!

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!

As a long-time teenage fan of the redwall series, I really had high hopes for the feature film of my favourite book ever. However, I was in for a surprise. This film is a travesty to the Redwall book and name. It detracts from the actual story, uses shoddy animation and awful voice acting. The target audience for the Redwall series was teenage children, and surely this film could have been made for them, not completely watered down to appease American infants. In the book there is actually some violence and bloodshed, which highlights the fact that this is a war between the peaceful mice and villanious rats. If you are a true Redwall fan like me, you will shun this video and pray for a true interpretation one day.
