Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Something of a dry run for the computer animation that would be exploited in its later films, The Rescuers Down Under is an exciting and entertaining film that succeeds because of its visual appeal rather than because of a compelling story or deft characterization. Using rotoscoping and multi-plane cameras in addition to computer animation and hand-drawn cels, Down Under has a number of action sequences that are quite thrilling (and which prepared Disney for similar tasks in Aladdin). Chief among these are the flying sequences that bookend the film, which are genuinely thrilling. The choice of setting -- the Australian outback -- is unique and also allows the Disney artists to indulge in a mania for brilliant reds and dazzling golds. It's true that the animation and artwork occasionally are a bit TOO clean and precise, but this is a minor quibble. More problematic is that the creators do not seem to have been as interested in their story and, to a lesser degree, in their characters. There's nothing really wrong here; all of the parts fit together, and the various animals are distinctive enough. Yet everything seems to take a bit of a back seat to the animated set pieces. As usual, vocal talent is first rate, with John Candy and George C. Scott coming in for special praise. Down Under may lack the elements that make for a classic animated film, but it packs more than enough punch to entertain children and their parents.

Animation has ben my hobby for my entire life and right now I am a cinema major-art minor in college and am in animation classes right now. This film has some of the greatest cinematography and THE best animation I have ever seen. You feel chills running through your spine as Cody, the little boy falls off the edge of the cliff to be saved by the eagle. This film inspired me to do so much animation. If it weren't for this film I might not have the love for animation that I do. and it was pretty funny too.

This is a great movie! We took our son to see it in the theatres when it came out, bought it on VHS and it was one of his favorites, he's 20 now and still likes it. So happy to get it on DVD to share with my niece, nephews ~ and one day grandkids. It's funny, adventurous and highly entertaining.

I liked this film alot because it tells you about people that live in Australia. Also it's funny and I think it can teach you alot. I also think that Cody is very brave to hug an egle that is ten times as big as him! I think that this movie is a good one.
