watership down - fantastic film,
This review is from: Watership Down (Deluxe Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
When i was a small child, I used to watch this film over and over again as an enchanting, exciting tale about a little group of bunnies that went on a big adventure, not really understanding what it was all about. But it was only just recently when it was on TV that i realised what a truly fantastic film this is, it can be looked at in so many different ways and have lots of different meanings. The animation is scetchy but I think that it all adds to the raw, honest beauty of this film. Some may decide thats its too violent and disturbing for little ones but never really noticed it as a child myself.
I would reccomend Watership Down to anybody, if your looking for a deep and interesting film or even just a story about a big adventure, this is it.

I'm with you, i loved this film as a child but appreciated it as an adult more. The only comment i have is that this film touched on development that destroys natural habitat that we wouldn't have thought of then but consider now and i think it's an important message

Whilst i agree with you that this film is fantastic, i must disagree with your comments about the animation being sketchy, you must try to remember that this film was made before there were computer cgi graphics, and, as far as i know, each frame of the film was individualy painted. In fact, when it was first released, people were praising about how HIGH QUALITY the films graphics were.
